St. Clare’s Class (Year 5)
Welcome back to Year 5! Thank you for sharing with me all your Christmas holiday experiences and returning with such a super learning attitude.
We have a short but exciting term ahead: we will be researching and writing non-chronological reports, exploring poetry, learning about other cultures and exploring factions.
We will continue to carry out more science investigations and enjoy playing sports such as badminton and tennis.
Please remember that your Learning Log is due on Wednesday 7th February ready for the show case on the 8th and 9th February.
Homework will be given out every Friday to be returned every Thursday. Your child will receive 3 pieces of homework per week. Spellings are given out on a Friday and children are tested the following Thursday.
A great iPhone/iPad app you can personalise by typing in their weekly spellings to make practising fun is:
Squeebles Spelling Test
Times tables are tested on Thursday. Children should practise their times tables facts regularly at home in order to progress. At the end of Year 5 children must know all their tables up to 12 x 12
A useful website for practise is:
There are also excellent iPad apps available such as:
Squeebles Times Tables
10 minute a day times tables.
Please listen to your child read every night and thank you for your continued support with their spellings and times tables.
