The Conflict Zone

Welcome back to our final term of year 5! This term, is sure going to be an exciting one! We have got so much to cram in and enjoy from maypole to sports day, from another DT project to the residential!

This term is all about conflict. I do not want to give the game away too early so, there will be more to come soon!

Our author this term is Frank Cottrell Boyce and we will be reading together story “The Unforgotten Coat.” Just like with Rooftoppers in Autumn term, if you want to get your copy, we can then enjoy it together.

Reading

Reading is at the heart of successful learning and we will immerse ourselves in a range of quality texts over the course of the year.  As Reading is a priority across all subjects, we regularly use a range of fiction and non-fiction texts in our lessons to help inform richer learning across the curriculum in the afternoon.  In addition to this cross-curricular learning, a single day might also see us exploring the motivations of characters in our gripping class novels or simply allowing children time to develop a love of reading through our provision of high-quality fiction books.  Wherever and whenever possible, we will prioritise developing the skills and positive attitudes towards Reading that will enable Willow class to become confident, informed and engaged learners. 

Our star author this term is Frank Cottrell Boyce. We are really excited to be getting into some of his stories soon!

Home Reading expectations are detailed below, but should your child express and interest in a particular author, series or genre, please let us know and we would be delighted to order books from our library partners free of charge.  Visits to your local library are also encouraged!

PE

PE will be on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.  Please can children come into school on Wednesdays and Thursdays already dressed in their PE kits. 

 

Homework

Please ensure your child reads at home at least 4 times per week.  In Year 5, they are expected to record their own reading in their Home – School contact books; parents just need to sign each time. 

TT Rockstars should be practised at least 3 times per week also for a minimum of 10 minutes each time.

Don't forget about Education City as well!

If you have any questions, please get in touch with me using the Home-School book or by email via the address above.
