WKB 27.6.22

Coasts project overview

Coasts homework SUMMER2 Y5

A reminder that homework is due on Monday 18th July. 

English this week…

In English, we are continuing to create a digital information text about our new topic of coasts! We have been working in teams and developing our IT skills as well as our team work attitude.  The children will be writing formal, non-fiction writing and including this throughout a powerpoint. We can’t wait to see them present their work to us and see how their confidence has grown throughout this year.

As usual, we highly recommend regular spelling practice at home, attached below are the Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 spelling lists from the National Curriculum. We test the children on 5 to 6 spellings each week. 



Attached are also some recommended books for Year 5: Book List

Our class book is Kensuke’s Kingdom – Michael Morpurgo.

Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo


Maths this week…

We have come to and end of looking at shape in Maths and now are beginning to look at position and direction. This means looking at coordinates, plotting them in the first quadrant and compass direction.


My Maths homework is not being completely as regularly as we expect for most children in Year 5 and it is really important that children are working on this at home. This is because it helps consolidate their understanding with the learning that we have done that week as well as installing an independence in the children to complete work to a deadline. All homework set on MyMaths will also be due on Monday 18th July. We also run a homework club every Wednesday at lunch, so the children also have the choice to stay and complete this, giving plenty of opportunities for getting this done.


After half term, our worship theme will be: Relationship with Ourselves + Others 

1 Thessalonians 5:11 

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 


Other news

PE day will continue to be on Tuesday. Please make sure that your children are wearing PE kit on Tuesdays. Thank you. We will remind your children in class also.

Please remember to bring in anything that you are proud of to show during our Achievements section of the Year 5 Friday Awards.

We will update Microsoft Teams with our class timetable each week. If your child is isolating with covid but well enough to do work, please contact their class teacher for resources. 


We hope you are all keeping safe and well,

Miss Cutler and Miss Peel
