To be returned to school on Monday 10th October 2022
Children are tasked with completing 'Maths Skills Check 4'. During the autumn term, the children are expected to complete section A but can challenge themselves to answer the questions in section B and C.
Times Table Rockstar
It is important that the children spend time playing on Times Table Rockstar as often as possible. Spending time practising times tables and learning them thoroughly will help the children access maths through Upper Key Stage 2 and beyond.
A good standard of spelling is going to be key in Y5 if the children are going to achieve well in writing so the children can be encouraged to play on Spelling Shed.
We ask that children read to a parent at least 5 times a week. If the children manage this, you will receive an additional sticker on your behaviour chart.
Don’t forget to sign and date the reading record book and record the number of pages read.
It is really important that the children are asked a mixture of questions by parents/carers. For now, try to focus on retrieval questions and make sure you practice scanning the text to find the answer.
Throughout the school year, children can attend a 'Homework Club' with Miss Smith at Thursday lunch time.
Over the course of this half-term, we would like the children to complete at least one of the following tasks linked to our history topic of Ancient Egypt.
- Make a paper mâché pyramid or “death mask”
- Create an Ancient Egyptian artefact and write about its history
- Write a diary from the viewpoint of Howard Carter, the man who discovered Tutankhamun’s tomb
- Using hieroglyphics, write a riddle for someone to decode
- Write an information sheet with a focus on ‘how to be an archaeologist’
We would like the children to bring their half-termly homework into school by Thursday 20th October. We will be looking to display the children’s homework in the hall and provide parents/carers the opportunity to view it at the end of the school day.
