Hopefully you have all now received your Year 5 welcome pack and important timetable.
The children are settling into Year 5 very well.
Here are a few photographs:
They have been getting crafty in Golden Time.
They have been enjoying their Guided Reading Book: The Lottie Project by Jacqueline Wilson.
As well as working hard in the core subjects, Year 5 have been very enthusiastic to learn their current foundation topics too:
Vikings, Materials and their Properties and What Matters Most to a Christian and a Humanist.

Children should also be reading regularly at home and practising times tables.
Reading journals, reading books and spelling homework books should live in school bags in case they are needed in school.
Oxford Owl is a lovely website which has a library full of e-books which relate to the Oxford Reading Tree scheme. These can supplement home reading should you wish to use them.
Please do not feel you need to rush your way through- 2 or 3 books alongside weekly school books and/or any books from home should be plenty.
