Word of the Day!
These are some of the words we have been looking at during the last few weeks.
We discuss the words by thinking of:
* word pairs
* then putting it into a sentence
Adverbs of possibility and frequency
Can you think of any more?
Can you think of any other words that end with the suffix -ment?
Write them down and bring them into class :)
Just a quick reminder that the sign up list is now available for parent/teacher consultation meetings next week. You can find the Year 5 list on the classroom door leading outside. Thank you to those who have already signed up - there are still plenty of spaces.
I'm looking forward to the opportunity to spend time talking about your children and the great progress that is already being made in Year 5.
Although homework is not compulsory in Primary School, we feel that it is important for the children to begin this process in preparation for Secondary School.
We would like the children to start taking ownership of their own learning by collecting the homework in the classroom voluntarily. As of Monday there will be a 'homework corner' where I will leave various pieces for the children to take if they wish to. These will include times tables, grammar and punctuation, writing and maths reflection activities.
Remember to read with and listen to your children reading as often as you can - use the VIPERS skill questions to help with the comprehension and understanding of the texts being read. Continue to practice the times tables - we have done all of the tables now apart from 11x and 12x. The children need to know these forwards, backwards, out of order and with quick recall: all children have made significant progress with their speed tests this half term already.
Finally, please do spend time with your children having a go at the Greek tasks I sent out before half term too.
Thank you for your continued support working together with us at school to help your children become the best that they can.
Words with silent letters
We are looking forward to our day of orienteering at Duchy College tomorrow!
Please arrive at the normal time but come straight to the classroom once the gates open so we can get registered and onto the coach as soon as possible.
Children will need to wear their school PE kit; this can be worn from home into school, or changed into on arrival. Please ensure comfortable trainers are worn for the days activities - the children will be spending time on their feet a lot during the day.
Plenty to drink
Warm jumper (school jumper is preferably)
The coach will return us back to school for the end of the school day.
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
We are bold and innovative in our approach to find new solutions to the challenges we face.
We are the best we can be.
We take responsibility for our actions in an environment of mutual respect.
We overcome all barriers to reach our potential, developing a capacity to improve further.
We are passionate about learning.
