Parent Information Sheet: The Victorians

Welcome to Year 5!

Working with you in Year 5 for most of the week are Mrs Nicholls and Mrs Plant.

Mrs Jones and Mrs Hurst also work with us for some lessons during the week and Mrs Denham volunteers on a Wednesday.

 

This term we are  learning all about life during Victorian times. Find out more by reading through the Parent Topic Information Sheet.

Reading 
Your child should bring a reading book and reading diary home with them everyday. To develop comprehension skills, it would be useful if you could read with your child two or three times a week and question them about what they have read. Please sign the reading diary when you have worked with your child. We encourage the children to take responsibility for also entering their own comments and making a note of tricky words they have read. There is a space for this in their reading diaries. This term, for our reading challenge, all the children are trying to read their way around the British Empire.

Spellings
Your child should bring a list of spellings home with them on a Friday. They are tested on these words the following Friday so please ensure they practice the words at home and have their spelling books in school every Friday. A good way of practising spellings is by using: look, say, cover, write, check- reading the word, saying the word, covering it and then having a go at writing it. The most effective way of learning information is to practise little and often- learning spellings for a chunk of time just before a test proves to be ineffective when transferring to long term memory, so the more they are practised, the more likely they are to stick!

Homework
Homework is given to your child every other Friday and children are given nearly two weeks to complete this. It should be returned on a Wednesday. Homework is set in a menu format where there are a number of optional activities to complete. Homework that is expected to be completed by everyone is as follows: spellings, learning of tables,/key number facts and reading.



Times Tables
Please continue to encourage your child to learn their times tables. Knowing them really helps in many aspects of maths. They are tested on their times table knowledge regularly. This includes knowing the division facts that relate to the multiplication. Your child should know what their target table is- we also practise this regularly in school. Ask them about the 'Wipe-out' method for learning tables! (Information on homework sheet).

P.E
P.E. is usually on Tuesdays and Thursdays. However, please ensure your child has their P.E. kit in school at all times as we often have specialist teachers that visit on different days which involves  extra P.E.!

Escot Residential Trip

For the last two years, we have run a very successful 2 day, 1 night, residential visit to Escot Park near Exeter. Have a look at the photos on the archived page from last year. If there is enough interest, we will investigate the possibility of running this once again in the summer term.

If you have any concerns about your child, please don't hesitate to get in touch with either Mrs Nicholls or  Mrs Plant.

 

We hope your child(ren) really enjoy Year 5!
