Room 13 by Robert Swindells
We will also be learning about Ancient Greece in our Theme Week on 26th June 2017
Look at our amazing sentence work.
We used our layers of learning to structure our writing!
LOOK AT OUR WRITING!
We have been reading about Beowulf and it has inspired our writing
In year 5, the children will be given homework every week; This will be either Maths, English or Science.
Spellings are essential so it is an expectation that your child regularly practices their individual spelling list in preparation for their weekly spelling tests.
A topic homework menu will be sent home at the start of each term. Children can opt to complete these as additional homework in order to gain 5 extra team points.
We also expect that your child reads at every opportunity.
If you would like to support your child's reading at home, you could:
- discuss key characters and settings
- make a list of unfamiliar words and their meanings
- discuss the book with your child and the events that occur
Please ensure that your child is completing homework and bringing it into school on the days it is due in. We appreciate all the hard work you do with your child at home.
