week ending 26.2.16

Thank you to all the parents that were able to attend the spelling workshop this week. We spent the session playing a variety of games based primarily on the year 5 and 6 word list (see previous posts). The website Woodlands Junior School was recommended for both Maths and spelling support for home as part of this session.

Maths homework: timetables sheets have been sent home today.

Abacus homework has been set.


Spellings: sheet has been sent home

New topic and RE pyramids were sent home today. See posts below.


Lastly, just a reminder it is 5C’s trip to Airbus on Monday and 5W’s trip on Tuesday. Children in 5C will need to bring packed lunch in a carrier bag and a coat in case of rain.


Have a brilliant weekend,

Space Homework

Happy Half Term!

Happy Half Term!

Just a quick reminder about what the children are expected to do over the half term:

Reading: Every child in 5C has now been told whether they have moved up a book band. The expectation is the children do reading at least 3 x a week of this book and record this reading in their reading diaries.

Maths: Abacus: New Abacus homework has been set.

Spellings: A battleships grid has been sent home with the children to complete using the statutory year 5/6 word list document (see post below). The children can choose as many/as few of these words to learn as they would like.

That’s it! I hope the children have a relaxing week off.
