Year Five

Homework Topic – Yr 5: St Elizabeth

Dear Parents,

First of all, thank you so much for all your support this year. This term in Year 5 is, like the rest, a very busy one!

I will be setting homework every Friday and it should be returned by the following Tuesday. Please sign each piece of homework as your child finishes it.

Please can I remind you of the enormous importance of regular reading with your child at home. It is really lovely to hear our children recommending books to one another and sharing them together – what better way to encourage reading for life than by regular use of your local library?

Please continue to reinforce the fundamentals of mathematics and encourage your child to work at home on aspects of ‘time’ and ‘money’. Whilst part of the curriculum, these are life skills that we expect all our children to have. Ask them to read bus timetables or plan a journey using maps and timetables.

This term in History, we will be studying The Mayans. This is a topic that is relatively new to the curriculum and the children have already conducted some fantastic research over the Easter period. In Science, we will be examining Living their habitats, followed by Earth and Space in the latter half of the term.

Please make sure that your child arrives to school with plenty of time to spare, so that they have the best possible start to the day. Also, please ensure that they are picked up promptly at 3:25.

Your children are a real credit to you and I know they will do us all proud in the final term of Year 5.

Yours sincerely,


Class Teacher
