Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

YEAR 5

What we have achieved this week:
 
We are nearing the end of Stormbreaker and are ever more gripped by Alex's adventures. In English this week, we looked at modal verbs and how we can use these in persuasive writing. We challenged ourselves by using a variety of modal verbs in our very own spy gadget adverts. 
 
In Maths, we focused on addition and subtraction and looked at various ways of solving and representing our calculations. We discussed how the inverse can be used to solve problems by working backwards and how using the inverse can help check our answers.

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.
