Year 5 - Owls and Foxes

Summer Term (1) 2022

 

Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely Easter break and haven’t eaten too much chocolate.  Please note the following information needed to make this term as successful as possible: 

 

Curriculum

This half term our topic is our Presentation. We will be performing The Pied Piper and cannot wait to perform it in front of our parents.

 

In Science this half term, we will be focusing on Earth and Space. This will include learning the Solar System, how planets move/orbit and the moon’s movements.

 

Finally, for PSHE, we will be concentrating on Health and Wellbeing. We will be learning about the how drugs affect our health and discussing the dangers of drugs.

 

 

 P.E. 

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. 

  

Homework 

As you may be aware, Cooks Spinney has adopted an online homework policy.  Your child’s Mathletics and Spelling Shed homework will be set on Thursday’s.  We do encourage children to read with an adult at least three times per week to build up their vocabulary and comprehension skills.  Children will be given a reading book from our class library.  Finally, children are reminded to continue their daily TTRS practise at home, as we hold Times Table tests three times a week in school.

Any queries please do not hesitate to ask one of the Year 5 team. 

  

Yours faithfully, 

Mr Beaumont, Miss Kipps and Mrs Whitbread.
