Welcome back Year 5, what a great class you are!  smiley


This term our topic is Stargazers.  We are sharing Cosmic Boy by Frank Cotrell-Boyce as our class text. 


We’re focusing on ensuring that we know all our times tables as soon as possible and then working on our speed of recall.  We will be doing weekly times table tests each Thursday from now on.  We have focused on our Lower Key Stage spelling list to start with but will be moving onto the Year 5/6 list as soon as we can. Our spelling tests will be on a Monday (see attached lists on our opening page of our Class Pages).  Times tables and spellings will be the focus for our homework this term and will help with your times table practice.  


We are currently doing PE on a Thursday, first thing in the morning to wake us up!   Our focus is on Multi-skills this term.  Can we improve our speed, agility and control?  On Thursday it is sports club until 4pm, you must let the office know if you wish to come for the term.


Accelerated reader is up and running again, so try to read as often as possible at home and we will test regularly in class to see how well you have recalled your reading.  Keep your book at home until you have finished it, then return it to school and we will complete your quiz and hopefully change your book.  Home/school contact books are being kept in school for the moment but we are recording your books and your quiz results in these. 


We have completed some great work so far, including some space art (see below) and leaflets/posters on space for some of our younger pupils to read; more photographs to follow.
