Year 5 - Shakespeare


This half term Shakespeare Class are reading Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo as part of our topic. In science we will be learning about animals and humans. In our Creative topics we will be learning about counties and cities within the UK, island landscapes in which we will create a pastel drawing and a virtual island; Spanish and covering justice and poverty in RE. In PE we are covering Trigolf and gymnastics.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday so please make sure kits are in. May we also take this opportunity to remind you again that named PE kits (including a pair of plimsolls or trainers) should be in school every day. In addition to regular PE slots, there will be opportunities to do PE at other times. We continue to have support with our PE from PE apprentices.

Children should bring their reading books to school every day. Our Library slot is on a Friday so books will be changed during that time along with library books. 

Homework will be set every Wednesday and is due in the following Monday - please feel free to support them in completing these. 
REDS and NEDS are given out on a Monday and handed in the following Monday. Please encourage your children to do these. 
Please also remember, that home reading books should be completed each time your child reads at home and brought into school every day, as there are daily opportunities for quiet reading time.

We hope that you continue to support your child’s learning with regular weekly reading, learning their weekly spellings and (if you have access to the internet) time on Bug Club for which they have their own password will encourage them to make continued progress.

Thank you for your support, and do please feel free to come and talk to us about any concerns or queries you may have. 
We look forward to a very happy and very successful Summer term!
