Junk Modelling Request
As a stunning start to our work on forces, we will be spending the first Tuesday back creating, testing and evaluating some junk models. For now, we are going to keep the theme of the modelling a secret.
Please have a look over the half term holiday and collect some junk to use! You could collect empty cereal boxes, toilet rolls, empty cartons, plastic bottles and any other junk that you find lying around.
All junk must be brought to school in a bag by Tuesday 26th February 2019.
The team that creates the best junk model will win a prize.
May The Force Be With You
Our topic for next half term is called 'May the Force Be With You'
We are learning all about different forces and their effects in Science. We will also learning about rivers in our Geography work. Later on in the term, we will learn how to two different topics connect.
Children in Year 5 are set two pieces of homework a week, as well as their spellings.
Maths homework is set on a Friday and due in on the following Tuesday for all classes.
Spellings are given out on a Thursday and are tested the following Thursday for all classes.
English/Topic homework is set on a Monday and due on a Thursday for all classes.
All children are expected to read for at least 15 minutes each evening. Each child has a reading record that should be signed by an adult to show that they have been reading. Reading records are checked twice a week (days specific to each class) and there will be rewards for regular readers!
Please see the pages below for this week's homework.
If you have not got a particular week's homework either due to missing school on the day it is set or because you have lost your sheet, then you can download it from the appropriate page.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO COMPLETE ALL THE HOMEWORK SHEETS BELOW
All children should complete one piece of maths homework either online OR on a worksheet depending on whether you have internet access at home.
All children should complete one piece of English homework.
A few children have two pieces of maths, the main piece (online OR worksheet) and an extension sheet.
If you are downloading the sheets from below, make sure you are completing the correct one! If you aren't sure which one you were originally given, check with your class teacher.
Outdoor PE is a Monday. This term, our focus is hockey.
