Hello and welcome to Year 5.

Welcome back to school! We hope you have had a fabulous week off and are looking forward to the new school term as much as we are.

We have lots of exciting things happening this term, including a trip, so make sure you read on to find out what is happening.

 

 This half term our theme will be poetry. During this topic children will learn about different types of poetry including Kit Wright’s The Magic Box and ‘Twas the Night before Christmas. They will prepare poems to read aloud and perform showing their understanding through intonation, tone, volume and actions. In addition, they will use their own experiences to write poetry using figurative language and imagery.

To support your child please share your favourite childhood poems and explain why you liked these poems in particular.

PE

We will have the PE sessions twice a week. All children are required to wear full school-issue PE kit, which is available from the school office. Your child’s PE kit should come into school at the beginning of half term and be taken home to wash at the end of the half term unless it is needed before hand. 4 Lewis will be going swimming for two weeks at the London Aquatic Centre, Stratford. every day from 28.10.2019 to 08.11.2019. Please ensure that your child has an appropriate swimsuit, a swimming hat and a towel. This is a fantastic opportunity for your children to learn this critical skill at the Olympic Swimming Centre in Stratford.

Reading Challenge

Reading challenge continues!

Children should be encouraged to read these to further develop their reading ability and vocabulary. If the children read six books each half term they will receive a half termly reading challenge certificate. Please support and encourage your child to foster a lifelong love of reading.

Mathematics

We will concentrate on Fractions for the greatest part of this half- term, to lay solid foundations for the rest of the year. This will include finding fractions of amounts ; equivalent fractions and the addition and subtraction of fractions.

Other aspects we will revisit and practise are place value, we will also develop our understanding of units of measure and how to convert between them.
