Welcome to 5.2
Please find the recommended reading list and statutory spelling list for children in years 5 and 6 below. These documents were handed out at the Meet The Teacher evening but please do have a look at them if you were unable to make it.
Also attached is the recommended reading list for Years 3 and 4 for children who may find reading more challenging.
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 on Tuesdays and Thursdays and there will be rewards for regular readers!
Topic/English homework is set on a Monday and due back in by the Thursday.
Maths homework is set on a Friday and due back in by the following Tuesday.
Spellings are handed out on a Friday and tested the following Friday.
This week, we investigated the earth's movement around the sun. We braved the cold and took our learning outside. We turned ourselves into human sundials and noticed that our shadows changed shape and location throughout the day, even when we were positioned in the same spot!
