Information and Reminders
- We are encouraging Year 5 children to read at home at least 3 times a week. If you read with your child at home, please mark inside their learning journals for their class teachers to see.
- Homework is sent on Wednesdays and must be returned on Mondays to be marked. Please make sure you encourage your child to complete it on their own and inform us if they found the activity challenging so we can further support them in school. They can sign up for homework club on Thursdays and Fridays which is first come, first served.
- Don’t forget to check Class Dojo to see how many House Points your child has been collecting and to see posts of what is happening in your child’s class.
- Please make sure your child brings a water bottle to school.
- Please note that IB and IGCSE exams are taking place and will be taken in the Primary building. The main staircase in B Block will remain closed and all students and adults should use alternative staircases. Please can we ask parents not to wait in the area outside the Hive, outside Sports Hall B or along the Year 3 classrooms, as we need to ensure silence for our older students. Parents are always welcome to go to Aspretto, our coffee shop, whilst waiting for students. Thank you for your support

In English, the children will continue to use their reading of ‘Team Moon’, and their topic work, to put together a space travel brochure. They will write persuasively, culminating in the writing and designing of a holiday brochure advertising a holiday to space. This should combine their skills from previous topics, as well as their computer skills. They will also have the chance to show an awareness of their audience through the addition of humour.
Focus: Evaluate effectiveness; Use persuasive techniques; Structure a text; Use cohesive devices
In Mathematics, we will continue to revise fractions, decimals and percentages. We will be representing percentages and fractions visually, and will see how we can apply this to number. We will also look at equivalent fractions, and how to add and subtract fractions that do not have the same denominator, and we will look at equivalencies between fractions, decimals and percentages where the denominator is not a multiple of ten.
Next week in topic, we are continuing with our science experiments, we will be exploring whether the height an object hits a surface affects the size of the crater that is made. As artists, we will be creating Nebula patterns using a variety of colours and shapes. Towards the end of the week, the children will be exploring ancient maps of the world and researching different schools of thought of the shape older civilisations thought the Earth was.
