This term we will be learning all about Robin Hood! We will be learning about the story of Robin Hood and linking it throughout our literacy work, writing our own myths and legends. We will be looking at what medieval life was like for villagers in history, as well as deforestation in geography. We were also be getting ourselves ready for our end of year performance of Robin Hood.

This term year 5 will have P.E on Monday afternoons (gymnastics) and Wednesday mornings (Real P.E) so please make sure your child has their kit in school for these days. Mrs Wicks will be teaching science this term on Tuesday afternoons.
Spellings (set weekly, on a Friday, and tested on the following Friday)
Children will no longer be using their spelling log and will instead receive a list of spellings to learn. These will usually be based on the spellings that they have been learning that week in school, however, from time-to-time, they could be based on spellings that have previously been learnt- as a way of recapping them. It is expected that the children practise these spellings at home ready to be tested on the following Friday. For the children who are currently doing ‘Nessy Spelling’ they will continue to be set words during the week, which will then also be tested on a Friday.
Maths (set weekly, on a Friday, and due in on the following Wednesday)
Maths questions and activities will be sent home in homework books/ folders. This will include work to consolidate or extend what the children have been learning about in class, as well as other activities to re-cap prior learning.
Grammar and Punctuation (set weekly, on a Friday, and due in on the following Wednesday)
Grammar and punctuation questions and activities will be sent home in homework books/ folders. This will include work to consolidate or extend what the children have been learning about in class, as well as other activities to re-cap prior learning.
Project-based homework will also be set at different points during the year, where the children will be given a number of weeks to produce a finished piece relating to our topic. When completing projects, other homework will be adjusted to allow children adequate time at home to complete these.
Your child should be reading regularly at home. Instances of reading should be recorded in their reading diaries and if your child manages to demonstrate in their journals that they have read on a regularly basis then they will receive a house point. They should also be given the opportunity to read aloud to an adult and there are questions in their reading journals which parents can use to help develop comprehension skills.
French is taught once every fortnight, so homework will be set at the end of the lesson and will be due in at the start of the following lesson.
If there are ever any issues regarding homework then please feel free to pop in and see me where I will be happy to discuss these with you.
Welcome to Sparrow's class page where you will find lots of useful information for our class, as well as finding out all about what we are up to throughout the year.
This term we will be learning all about chocolate!
P.E will be taught on Monday afternoons, so please make sure that children have their school P.E kit in school ready. Year 5 will also be swimming this term on Tuesday afternoons accompanied by Mr Wells.
R.E will be taught on Wednesday afternoons and French will be taught every other week.
Children will be bringing home a spelling log book where they will have spellings from the week's spelling sessions to further practise. They will also receive weekly maths homework, which will build upon their learning from the week's lessons.
Homework will be given out on Fridays and collected in on Wednesdays.
Children will also receive French homework every other week to be handed in for their next lesson.
Also, a big thank you to all of Sparrows class for making me feel so welcome in my first few days here at Claypole.
