Year 5RC Blog
I cannot believe that we have reached the end of week one already. The first few days have flown as we have got to know one another. The children chose a book yesterday from the 5RC library and brought it home with their reading journal. Please encourage them to read every night. Their book and journal need to be in everyday. They can also continue to use their Read Theory account and Bug Club Account which are both excellent sources of online reading and comprehension activities. I can see their progress online and this will support assessment as the year progresses. All hard work will of course be rewarded with dojos.
Daily reading is part of the essential element of the Chatterday Homework set each term (now in the Downloads) along with spelling. The children's passwords for Spelling Shed have been attached to their reading journals for convenience. Spelling homework has been set from today, ready for their first spelling test of the year next Friday. Practising timestables daily is also really important and fun on TT Rockstars. Yesterday, the Hive 5 sat their first Times Tables Superheroes quiz, with many children earning a certificate. Well done to those who were awarded Batman level.
I hope everyone has a restful weekend and we look forward to more Viking fun next week when we begin our two special books, Viking Boy and Norse Myths and Legends.
We've had a great first day, writing a character description about a Viking, creating posters about ourselves and designing a Hive Five joint art work for our classroom door. See you again tomorrow everyone!
Hi to the new 5RC!! A huge welcome from Mrs Whitehead, Mrs Parker, Miss Canham and me. We can't wait to get to know you all, and get cracking with our exciting new topic - Vikings! Hopefully, this year will be a far more normal year!
In the downloads section, you will find a sneak preview of what we will be learning this term. PE will be on a Wednesday and Thursday, so you will need a full PE kit needs to be in school on those days from next week. We have in school all the stationary you will need, and a fabulous range of reading books in our Library, so all you need to bring with you the first week is lots of positivity.
Keep Safe and well,
