Year 5 - Owls and Foxes
Autumn Term 2020
Welcome back! I know you are as excited as we are to be joining Year 5 in what we hope will be a great year. We hope you all had a lovely Summer holiday and are raring to go! We are sure your children are eager to get going on improving their skills and understanding. Please note the following information needed to make this term as successful as possible:
This half term our topic is the Anglo-Saxons. This topic is a History-based topic and we will be focusing on aspects of their daily life such as village life, clothing, religion, the Saxon army, famous Saxon leaders, famous Saxon stories and the archaeological finds at Sutton Hoo.
Year 5 P.E. days are on Mondays & Tuesdays. Your child must come to school in their P.E. kit on these days. Failure to have it is likely to result in them not being able to participate in the lesson. In addition, children will not be able to participate if they do not have the correct P.E. kit. Please see the school website for more information on the P.E. kit requirements. If your child has their ears pierced, they will be required to either take out the earrings or cover them with tape for the lesson. Please remember Cooks Spinney only allows small stud earrings in school.
As you may be aware, Cooks Spinney has adopted an online homework policy. Your child's Mathletics homework will be set on Thursdays. Reading Eggs is optional; however, we do encourage children to read with an adult at least 3 times per week to build up their vocabulary and comprehension skills. Children will be given a reading book from our class library. We are excited to announce the introduction of KS2 Pupil Organisers. Children will be expected to fill these in on a daily basis through regular reading at home.
Any queries please do not hesitate to ask one of the Year 5 team.
Mr Beaumont, Miss Cruse and Mrs Whitbread.
