This Week:
We have had another busy week in Year 5 - and there's only one week to go until the end of term. Needless to say, we are all on a countdown now!
In maths, we have consolidated all our learning for this half term through mini assessments and investigations, including one about a mince pie thief!
In English, we have continued to work on our 'Kevin the Carrot' playscripts, with the children learning about dialogue, stage directions and setting the scene. We can't wait to act them out once finished!
We have also enjoyed finishing our Paul Klee artwork, which will go on display next term.
Please complete the tasks assigned to you on mymaths.
If you have an issue with the website or internet, please come and tell us on Monday, so that, where possible, we can help to sort it before homework is due in on Wednesday.
Please complete the SPAG sheet in your homework book. This goes over some of the grammar terms you should be aware of in Year 5. If you're not sure, check with a grown up or speak to your teacher on Monday. Be creative with a very boring sentence!
There are no spellings to learn for next week. Spellings will start again in January!
Year 5 will have their Christmas party on Thursday 19th December in the afternoon. Each child can bring in a named party bag of snacks to enjoy during the party, so please provide your child with a small selection (bear in mind they will have just had lunch!). As it is a party, the children will be allowed to wear party hats so if they have one, please ask them to bring it! 
** Stationary Plea **
Please may we kindly ask you to re-stock your child's pencil case over the holidays. In particular, children will need glue sticks and whiteboard pens if possible. 
Next term (Spring 1), 5T will have PE on a Tuesday and Wednesday. 5H will have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child has the correct PE kit at school (especially a sweatshirt during the winter months), otherwise they will not be able to take part in the lesson.
Reading records need to be handed in every Monday (5T) and Tuesday (5H). Children should be reading every day and 3 comments a week are required by either you or your child as well as a parent signature.
