This year the class will be taught by Miss Tindall. Mrs Gerrard will be helping with Maths groups while Mrs Worsley will take small groups for English lessons. This term P.E lessons will be on a Wednesday afternoon and all the children will take part in sports activities at Roefield on Friday afternoons.

 
Homework
 

Maths and English homework will be sent home as a pack to be completed throughout the half term. There will be a range of activities to complete, linked to the learning taking place in class. The pack will be handed in at the end of each half term, but if the children need any help with the tasks, please come and see me. New spellings will be sent home every week and will be tested on a weekly basis as we develop our understanding of different spelling rules.  Over the course of a half term, the children will be issued with approximately three creative tasks to undertake in their learning journals.  These will be sent home on a Friday with the intention of encouraging the children to recap and further explore an area or topic that we have been looking at over the week. 

Reading

We read frequently throughout the week, whether it is individually, shared reading or in a guided reading group. So reading for at least 10/15 minutes every day would be very beneficial.  Books can be changed in school any day of the week; please ensure book reviews are completed in order to receive another book. All children must complete an 'Accelerated Reader' quiz after they have read each book. 

 
School Council
 The children prepared speeches and  voted for the two children who they thought would represent our class well at school council meetings. Our school council representatives for 2019-2020 are:
Nicole and Ben
We can't wait for them to  share our ideas and suggestions at each meeting. 
Eco Council
 During Year 5, we learnt all about the rainforest and we are passionate about helping to make the world a better place to be. Our eco council representatives for 2019-2020 are:
Beth and Theo
