Year 5 and 6

Welcome to Year 5 and 6.

Y5/6 Autumn Term 2018

Image result for world wars

Welcome back everyone! We are really looking forward to our first few days together and for the rest of the new school year. In the next few days, we will be launching a stunning start to our new topic, ‘WORLD WAR’, which takes us back in time to World War 2 followed by World War 1 after half term.

This week we will be sending home information regarding home learning projects, where children are encouraged to be as independent and creative as possible with their responses as well as details regarding your child’s class timetable, reading book band and other additional information to be shared with parents.

Next Wednesday, 12th September, we welcome you to visit our classrooms and share some of the work we will have completed already. It will also be a chance for you to meet your child’s new teacher and classroom and look at some examples of last year’s home learning journals if you would like to. 

We look forward to seeing you soon

Miss Rowe, Miss Bell and Mr Waterfall-Smith

We already know the interest you take in your child’s work. If you can, please discuss with your child the work they have done as the term progresses and let them teach you if they can! Please continue to share your child’s reading with them on a daily basis. Please can you also encourage your child to have their PE in school EVERYDAY, including a pair of trainers for outdoor activity, and for for kits to be taken home on a Friday to be washed over the weekend before being returned on Monday.

Home learning

Spelling lists for the whole term will soon be in your child’s planner and will be tested on Tuesdays. Each week, your child will be given a maths task to complete at home reflecting the previous weeks learning in the classroom. These tasks will be given out on Friday and will be expected to be returned by the following Wednesday. Home Learning tasks will be given out on a fortnightly basis. The Y5/6 teachers will be running a home learning club every Thursday lunch time where pupils can enjoy using the chromebooks and school resources to work on their home learning tasks. If you have any questions regarding your child’s time at St Oswald’s, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of our team.

Many thanks for your on-going support.

The Year 5/6 Team.
