Year 5 - Owls and Foxes
Autumn Term 2020
Welcome back after a well-deserved half-term break! We couldn’t be prouder of how resilient the children have been since starting in Year 5 and look forward to even more amazing time together. Please note the following information needed to make this term as successful as possible:
This half term our topic is the Britain on the home front. This topic is a History-based topic and we will be focusing on Britain’s involvement during the Second World War and the impact it had on British life. We will also be covering Judaism during R.E lessons as well as diving into some basic performance elements in Music.
Year 5 P.E. days continue to be 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.
Your child's Mathletics homework will be set on Thursdays. We are also fully up and running with our EdShed spellings which are also set on Thursdays. At the beginning of the term the children will be given a selection of options for their homework projects. In addition to the above, children can challenge themselves with monthly writing tasks they can tick off in their blue books. Children will be given a reading book from our class library. We continue the use of KS2 Pupil Organisers. Children will be expected to fill these in on a daily basis through regular reading at home. Please acknowledge/initial their daily reflections in their organisers.
Any queries please do not hesitate to ask one of the Year 5 team.
Mr Beaumont, Miss Cruse and Mrs Whitbread.
