Welcome to Year 5!
New targets are set online and adapted termly based on school learning. Children have their own log in for this, and should complete an activity once a week as a minimum, but are more than welcome to access this more frequently should they choose to do so. The link for their homework is https://ukhosted11.renlearn.co.uk/6709685 .
Children can also be able to access Times Table Rockstars, using the same log in! This is another option for the children when completing their Maths homework and enables them to practice their times tables. https://ttrockstars.com/
Spellings and Literacy
Spellings will be sent home every Thursday, and tested the following Thursday. Children are encouraged to recite their silly story and add dots and dashes to their words to assist them with learning their words. This is what is covered in class each week.
Every fortnight, an additional activity is also sent home for the children to complete. This will be related to either their spelling words, or a skill they have been applying in class.
Homework is collected in every Tuesday to allow us time to address any misconceptions, and arrange new homework for the next Thursday.
This term's topic: What was life like in the 1960s?
