Each half term we will be producing a Year 4/5 newsletter so that you know what your child will be studying that term. Your child will be given a copy of this in school but an electronic version will also be available in the 'Letters' section.
Look out for your child's Home Learning sheet which will be given out every Friday. The expectations of homework set in Year 4/5 is as follows:
- Reading (daily)
- Spellings (daily in preparation for a weekly test)
- Multiplication and Division recall (daily in preparation for a weekly test)
- A Maths or English task (weekly)
- There may be a half termly Topic Research Task
Reading at home
We strongly recommend that all children read at home every night, either independently, with an adult or an older brother or sister. This can greatly assist in the development of their reading skills, and therefore be a key element towards their success in literacy. It is beneficial for children to read a range of materials around the home, including: school library books, fiction and non-fiction, newspapers and magazines.
If there are any parents who could volunteer to listen to readers from Year 5 we would be very grateful. All volunteers must be CRB checked. Please let us know if you would be available.
Our PE lessons days are on the class pages. Children must have their PE kit on these days as this is an essential part of the curriculum for children’s health and physical development. Please bring PE kits in on Monday and leave them in school as timetables can change. It is important that their kit is clearly named.
Indoor kit: Shorts and t-shirt.
Outdoor kit: Shorts/tracksuit bottoms, t-shirt, trainers/plimsolls, jumper.
The children are advised to bring in with them a mid-morning snack of fruit or vegetables. Crisps and sweets are NOT permitted.
Please remember that the school office should be notified as soon as possible if a child is absent.
