Each child has a planner that you will be able to write positive comments in about how well your child has been reading and understanding what they have read. Please ask them questions to help check that they have understood.
There are rewards for 20, 50 and 100 Book Bucks.
Please remind your child of the fabulous rewards for achieving these reading milestones and check that they are completing the associated reading activities. ( There is a lovely selection of activities in our homework books, although this is not an exhaustive list).
Over the next half term year 5 will be following a unit of work on a theme that focuses on ‘Fascinating Forces' This is part of the International Primary Curriculum, and is based around specific targets derived from the learning goals for one or more of the subjects.

All of the work we are going to do has been specially written to help your child reach the learning goals. Children will be reading, researching, writing, illustrating, working on their own and working in groups. We will be checking to see how well your child has learned through particular activities and asking children to explain their work, perhaps to you.
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 your child has some work to research, please help them, but without actually doing the work. If you have the chance to further their interest in the ideas of this theme please take it, but your enthusiasm and interest is most important.
By the end of the unit, we hope your child has achieved all of the learning targets. We hope they have had an enjoyable time in the classroom. We also hope you have enjoyed seeing your child work with enthusiasm. If you have any comments or questions about your child’s learning, please get in touch

This term as well as applying our research skills to all relevant topics, we will be learning to code using a program called Scratch.
