Year 5 Newsletter –Summer Term 2 – 2019 -Mrs Mulroy (pdf available here)
Monday Spellings – Spellings will continue to be tested weekly and focus upon high frequency words from the National Curriculum. In Summer Term 2 we will continue to learn words from the Y5 & Y6 spelling lists in any order – we will test weekly on any words form the Y5 Y6 list.
The Importance of Reading – Please continue to encourage your child to read at home. Please encourage your child to read four times each week. We appreciate book reviews and recommendations, which can be displayed in class.
Homework – a maths or grammar activity will be given out weekly which should be returned any day but the following Monday at the latest. Please encourage your child to practise times tables and division facts daily. Please visit Rock Star Maths and Sum Dog Maths for times tables games.
Friday Times Tables – Quick recall of times tables facts to 12×12 is essential in Y5 & Y6. We will have daily practise in class and children will be tested every Friday – this will be recall of x facts and related division facts.
Our Class Novel this term is Viking Boy by Tony Bradman. If your child wishes to read it at home, there are copies available to borrow.
