If you would like some other things to do, there is a maths activity pack below which contains some fun things you can do with maths over the holidays. You can choose what activities you would like to do - they give you a good opportunity to keep your maths skills going ready for Year 5!
Don't forget you can still access TTRockstars over the holidays. Maintenance will be carried out on the TTRockstars website in the last couple of days of the holidays but it will be available for you to keep practising for the rest of the time!
Welcome to Year 5
The teachers in Year 5 are Mrs Chappell (Class 7), Mrs Manton (Class 8 and Year Leader) and Mr Harber (Class 9).
We also have teaching assistants who will be working in the year group - Mrs Hedderly and Mrs Fraser (Class 7), Mrs Togwell (Class 8) and Miss Fixter (Class 9).
Our first term's topic is Energy and Sustainability and the first Science unit is Materials and their Properties.
During the week we will set two pieces of homework - maths and spellings. The maths homework will be on a rotation of times tables activities, Mymaths and a worksheet to consolidate or extend the work that they have been doing in class. The children will be asked to learn a list of spellings and to complete an activity. We also request that you children read for at least 10 minutes each day and that at times, they are listened to by an adult who then can ask them questions about what they have read. Every half-term the children will be given a topic based project to be complete over an extended period.
The homework will all be set on a Friday and then due back in on the following Tuesday morning. As we are trying to develop the independence of the children it will be their responsibility to hand in their work on time. Any homework that is handed in after Tuesday morning, will not be marked to abide by the guidance of leaving books from home for 48 hours.
During the Autumn term, PE days will mostly be on Tuesdays and Fridays, however, we do ask that children have their PE kits in school all week so if for some reason we need to change the PE afternoon, they can still complete the lesson in their kits.
