Welcome to Year 5

It was wonderful to welcome children back this week and to see how positive and enthusiastic they are. See the newsletter below for all of the exciting plans for this year.  

Some points to note:

  • All Year 5 children will walk home by themselves, unless parents let school know otherwise. 
  • Homework will be set the week starting 7th September, on Thursday and due on Tuesday.
  • PE, French and Music is on a Wednesday.
  • Assembly dates can be found in the newsletter (below)

 

cool Homework 

To be completed by Tuesday 22nd September:

Maths - pages 6 and 7 

English - pages 8 and 9 (Not 10 and 11) - Adjectives and Adverbs

Due to Covid safety precautions, the home work books are not to return to school and can be marked at home with the answers in the back of the books. If your child really struggles with completing any of the work please do let your teacher know so we can help to address any gaps in their learning.

Remote Learning

If your child is at home self-isolating, please refer to the class notebook on Microsoft Teams to access and complete work for this week.

 

You can find your child's log-in in the 'Report Section' of MCAS. Refer to our 'How to' guides for more details

Your child is expected to follow the class timetable and complete daily English, (phonics) and maths lessons. As well as weekly lessons from our Fielding Learning Challenge Curriculum. Your child class teacher will make contact through the class notebook, and Microsoft Teams each day. This may be though written feedback or a video call. Your child's class teacher will arrange times for this.

Books going home

English and Maths books will also be sent home the weeks beginning:

Home learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise.  Our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:

 

  • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. Complete your child’s reading record each time they read. Remember it doesn’t always have to be their school book. Reading records and reading books should be sent into school daily. Teachers will have a look at these to check regular reading is taking place at home.
  • Learning spelling patterns linked to Year Group  expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home.
  • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. Log on to Timestable Rockstars!
  • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.

 

You will be able to see your child’s progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home at least once during every term as well as at parent consultation meetings.

Reading

Children will bring home their reading book, linked to the phonics or book band they have been assessed at. They also have the choice to select a recommended reading book or library book to share at home with you. More information about reading can be found

Once the children have read a book, it would be great if they could complete one of the activities of their choice outlined below. These can be completed in the blue book that children have been given. 

 

Activity Choices (they can be completed more than once):

1. Compare the book to another book you have read. What was similar? What was different? Think about characters/setting and events.

2. Draw a picture of your favourite character and write 5 words or phrases to describe their personality and 5 words/phrases to describe their appearance.

3. As you are reading, list any unfamiliar words and write their meaning.

4. If you could make one change to the story, what would it be and why?

5. Make a note of 3 of your favourite sentences and explain why you like them.

6. Complete a 'story S' which outlines the main events of the story.

Mathematics

TimesTables Rockstars!

TimesTables Rockstars is an online programme we have introduced to encourage children to have fun with multiplication facts while improving fluency, recall and speed. Children can access it in their own time on any IOS, Android or Windows device.

What is it?

Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of times tables practice. 

How does it work?

Incorrect answers are always immediately corrected in front of your child so that they start to associate the correct answer to every question. The clever code behind the scenes works out which times tables facts each child is consistently taking longer to answer and then it gradually starts to present these facts more frequently until they have mastered them. It will also ask related division questions 20% of the time in order to reinforce division facts.

Is this instead of the times table challenge completed in class?

No, this is to supplement the times tables challenge, giving children a fun way to practise and challenge themselves.

Where does this fit with National Curriculum expectations?

All pupils at the end of year 4 in England will take an online multiplication tables check. The national curriculum specifies that pupils at this stage should be able to recall the multiplication tables up to and including 12x12.

The check aims to support pupils to master multiplication skills, which are essential for future success in mathematics. It will help to identify pupils who have not yet mastered this mathematical concept, so additional support can be provided.

How do I log in?

Log in here: https://ttrockstars.com/login, use your child's details that came home at the end of the Summer Term, lost them? Speak to your child's class teacher.

Please see the sites below for other interactive games to help your children's fluency in recalling their multiplication and division tables.
