  • As we are spending more time online at home than we might normally, our online safety curriculum is as important as ever!  Please additionally find our final two lessons for Gooseberry Planet below for you to complete at your leisure over the remaining half-term.  Don't forget that each lesson also has an online game in the app and your login details are in your reading diary.  Below, you will also find the Q&A for the end-of-unit Rapid Fire Quiz which is on the app and a very jazzy certificate for you to print out and keep to celebrate the end of the year's learning.

Home Learning

In Year 5, we encourage an increased degree of independence. Pupils are expected to bring their diaries as they are checked each day. Homework is to be completed by deadlines and there is an expectation that pupils begin to take responsibility for bringing their P.E kits, swimming kits, packed lunches etc.

Topic/foundation homework is given out each half term. Pupils have a list of homework ideas glued in their homework books. They are free to choose any 3 of these homeworks and they are to be completed and handed in by the end of that particular half term. We love the creative pieces that we receive!

Spellings are given out weekly each Monday, then tested the following Monday. These also link in with our novel study.

Pupils are expected to read 5 times a week at home. Diaries are checked each Friday for ‘Reader Leader.’ Those pupils achieving this receive tokens and treats!


Things to remember...

Monday – Spelling test, new spellings given out

Tuesday – Swimming

Wednesday – P.E with Mrs Nixon

Friday – Diaries checked for Reader Leader
