Year 5 Summer Term 2017


Dear Parents

We can't believe we are in our final term of Year 5, this year has gone so fast.


All the children have worked really hard this year and made real progress. I would just like to remind you of a few things.


Firstly we have PE every Wednesday and Friday so it is very important that the children have their PE kits in school.


We will also be returning to swimming in the final half term which takes place on a Wednesday afternoon at Bootle Baths with the aim that all children  will be able to swim a minimum of 25 metres before they leave Year 5.

Spellings go out on Monday and the spelling test is Friday morning. 
Numeracy/literacy homework goes out on Tuesday and needs to be returned the next day.
Numeracy homework will be set on the computer every Thursday to be completed before the following Thursday. We also have a computer program named Mathletics, all children have been given their own personal log in and password.


Every child in Year 5 will continue to have the opportunity to learn how to play a brass instrument. This will take place every Friday afternoon resulting in us playing with the Halle Orchestra in Manchester in June. This is a fantastic opportunity for all the children.


Our topic this term is Space. If you have any resources at home which you think will be of interest to the children would you please send them into school and I promise, after showing the children, I will return them. We are also hoping to arrange to have a mobile planetarium visit our school.


Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions about anything that happens in class please do not hesitate to contact me.
