Times Table Rock Star
Thank you to all the parents who joined us for our launch of Times Tables Rock Star in school.
As part of Remembrance Day Year 5 made soldiers using wooden pegs.
Pupils were looking at the gravitational effects of large bodies on small bodies and how class one levers work.
Welcome to Year 5!
When the children enter this year in their academic lives, we expect them to be role models not only in their own class but across the wider school community as well.
We have high expectations of them and encourage them to be polite, well-mannered and hard-working inside and outside of school. This way they are always ‘Ready, Respectful and Safe’ aiming to be the best they can be at all times.
If your emotions feel all mixed up or you often have feelings that make you feel bad, talk to a trusted adult – they can help you find the right support. If your worried Childline is there to listen: https://www.childline.org.uk/
Every fortnight on a Monday we will upload a Homework presentation on this class page. The presentation will include:
- Spellings to learn which will be tested on Friday.
- A times table to learn which will be tested on a Friday.
- Reading at home to be completed at least three times a week.
Also included on the presentation, will be suggested activities to help your child learn their spellings and times tables as well as links to phonics instructional videos for parents.
Please support your child in completing these homework tasks as best as they can. Many thanks in advance for your support.
I am sure you will agree that reading is a vital life skill!
Please can we actively encourage you to read with your child at least three times a week at home. When you have read with your child, please can you make a note of the date, title of the book and make a comment about your child’s reading too. This will help the adults in school maintain a regular dialogue with you about your child’s reading.
I am out on the playground every morning for a quick chat or you can also contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
