Reading Expectations

At St. George's, we want ALL children to be confident, fluent readers who have an astute understanding of text and use this to develop their writing ability. 

In order to achieve this, we expect Y5 children to read at least 3 times a week and recommend daily reading. We ask that parents sign their child's reading record every time to acknowledge to the Teacher that their child has read.

READING RAFFLE - If a child reads 10 times and their record has been signed accordingly, they will receive a raffle Ticket and be in with a chance of winning  a very special prize !!!!!

Spellings

The children in Y5 need to know the Y3 and Y4 Statutory spellings (below) before moving onto the Y5 and Y6 spellings. 

We are currently revising these spellings and your child will bring some of these home with them to practise as part of their weekly homework.  

Please feel free to support your child at home with these spellings. Many thanks. 

English

Our text this term is Brother Eagle, Sister Sky, a moving edition of a speech made by an American Indian called Chief Seattle about the land of his people. We will be using it as inspiration for our fiction and non-fiction writing.

It also links well with our RE topic question 'Creation and Science, conflicting or complementary?'

We will be going on a walk up to the cross on Monday 12th - please send your child with suitable footwear and a coat.

 

Maths

Thank you for all your hard work in Rock Star Maths, the children's skills are really improving - please keep encouraging them.

In Number, pupils will be working on multiplication and division calculations, including factors, prime numbers and square numbers.

In Shape, they will be developing their fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills as they investigate perimeter and area.

 

HOMEWORK 

Homework is set every Thursday and due in the following Wednesday

READING: Recommended DAILY reading for all children in Osprey Class

Spellings: Weekly spellings are sent out in Homework Books to learn and use correctly in a sentence. 

English, Maths and Creative Homework is set weekly with specific objectives. Please see below.
