Rain has yet to stop play…

We continue with our unit based on the book ‘The Day War Came’ (which is on the reading passport). The children have been working on writing sentences with different sentence starters and adding subordinate clauses at different points of their sentence structures. In maths, we completed our addition work to find perimeters of shapes before moving to our new domains of multiplication and division. This makes it even more important that children are practicing their multiplication facts regularly.


As a team, we wanted to say how proud we are of the standard of homework that has been handed in. The creative homework has been varied and exciting to see, while the presentation of vocabulary and spelling work has been stunning. Thank you for your support in ensuring children complete their work on time. Many of the children have also been telling us about the ‘Must Read’ books they are reading – most have been enthralled by the different types of texts they are reading.


Your child will have their yellow Home Reading Journal returned this week so they can write a review of the book they are reading/ a book they have read. This is due Thursday 15th October.

In their red Homework Book they have  some spelling and maths  home learning they are expected to complete. This is due Thursday 8th October.

In their Homework book, they also have their creative homework task ideas for the autumn term– one piece should be completed each half term. This is ongoing.

Reading passports. The children who complete their passport will be put into a draw for the chance to see Pinocchio at the theatre. The class with the most completed entries get to have a complete afternoon of sport with CM Sports.


** Reminders –  it’s week 1 next week which means PE lessons will be on Wednesday Children should come to school wearing their PE kit.

As the weather begins to turn colder and wetter, please remember children will need a coat to keep warm and dry. The rain caught out several children this week

The Year 5 team.
