Croeso and welcome to Year 5!
We have a busy year ahead - lots of exciting things are planned.
5R have Games(outdoors) on a Tuesday and P.E on a Monday. 5G have Games (outdoors) on a Friday and P.E on a Monday, so don't forget your kit. Please bring kit to change into - do not wear your kit to school.
Home Reading is now during school lunchtime.
Book club is on Friday afternoons.
Big Maths: Every Wednesday in Maths, the children take tests - each week they try to beat their own best score. Please help your child learn/practice their timetables. If you would like more information, please feel free to speak to your child's Maths teacher.
If you don't have internet access at home, your child can use the school homework club each week. You can also take your child along to the local library where they can use the internet for up to 20 hours a week and it's free! Please check what homework they have and encourage them to complete it. Most homework does not require a computer at all. Books can be borrowed from the library for free as well.
We are also registered with www.sumdog.com
which is an excellent Maths site. Again each child has their own log in details. They can either just play games on their own or link up with classmates to play against them. Teachers can the access a record of what the children have done. Interestingly, those children who spend time on the website do well in the mental maths tests.
Thank you for your support. Your support makes all the difference to your child's experience at school. Please feel free to come into school and introduce yourselves.
Here's to a great year!
