Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

YEAR 5

What we have achieved this week:
 
In English, we watched this year's ALDI Christmas advert and reenacted some of the key (and hilarious!) scenes. Next week we are going to be writing our own playscripts so we created dialogue for our characters based on the ALDI advert. 
 
In Maths, we focused on multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. On Monday, we had a cross-curricular Maths challenge day where we designed a survey and collected data from all of KS2 before inputting this data into an Excel spreadsheet and creating graphs. 
 
 
 
Homework:
 
Maths
 
We are moving onto the second part of our multiplication and division unit after Christmas and we are looking for quick recall of all division facts. For your homework, please crack the Christmas code (sheet provided).

*A notice from Miss Williams and Miss Lewis*
 
During parent teacher consultations, some parents enquired about specific questions and targets to support their child's reading. Please find a document containing the Year 5 reading targets and possible questions to support each one at the bottom of this page. 
 
 
PE will continue to be on Thursdays and Fridays for both classes this half-term. We will be outside when it is dry; please ensure your child has tracksuit bottoms and a jumper as part of their PE kit. 
 
Reading Records

We expect all of you to be updating your reading records with at least 3 entries every week. This should include:

-Date

-Title of book

-Page numbers read

-A detailed comment about what you have read eg What did you enjoy most? What type of story was it? Which character was your favorite and why? Is it similar to any other stories you've read? 

Please make sure you bring your reading book and reading record to school every day and an adult signs it after each entry.

 
PE Kits

Please remind your children that if they go to an after-school club that requires them to wear their P.E kit, that it is returned to school the following day.

If, for any reason, your child is unable to take part in P.E, please inform the class teacher directly, send an email or write a note. Otherwise, they will be expected to take part.

 

Reminders

Please try to provide your child with a healthy snack for break time and a pencil case with the required equipment.

Please ensure children always have a water-proof jacket in school as the weather can be very unpredictable.
