Year 5 Weekly Newsletter


What have we done this week? 

  • This week, we have written our diary entries all about the rainforest and how our pineapple farm has been destroyed
  •  We have been looking at the effects of palm oil on deforestation and how this impacts  locals
  • In maths, we have been continuing with our work geometry looking at translation and reflection.  


What can you do at home to support our learning at school?

  • Read with your child every night for 10 mins and complete their reading record to show you have done this. Please comment on how your child is reading, rather than just sign it. It is good to see that children are reading fluently and independently, but can we still ask that you model this good reading to your child? Take a look at this link- it shows children who are working at the expected level for the end of KS2:
  • Ensure your child has completed their homework. Encourage the use of pencil and joined writing in their homework books. Please ensure books are returned by Wednesday.
  • Promote independence by asking your child to check they have everything they need ready for school. 
  • For safety, earrings should be taken out or covered with plasters for PE and swimming
  • Please ensure children bring a coat, water bottle to school. 
  • The children are currently completing their extreme reading- if you could help them to complete this and send a picture to school that would be brilliant!

What’s happening next week?

  • Bank holiday Monday
  • Swimming on Friday
  • We are going to make a start on shape.




Homework has been handed out today. Maths is section 3 test 1. There is also  a competition to enter designing a poster to keep children safe around building sites.


If your child has been well-behaved at school all week and followed our Golden Rules, a text will be sent home on a Friday to celebrate your child’s good behaviour. 

Staff are available on a Monday night after school from 3.15 – 4pm if you would like to talk to us about your child and need a longer time rather than a ‘quick word’ before or after school. Mrs Moorhouse will not be available after school on Monday, so if you need to talk to her specifically she will be available on a Tuesday or Wednesday after school or any morning.


Have a lovely weekend,
