Welcome back. I hope you have had a good holiday and are now ready for the final half term as Year 5!

Our Ancient Egypt topic is continuing this term, re-starting with our visit to the Bagshaw Museum. The first week back, Monday 6th June – Friday 9th June, will be our Healthy Living week. There will be lots of activities to aid our learning: cooking a healthy meal, exercise, and learning about how our bodies work.

In literacy, we will be writing instruction and recipe guides for various things.

In Maths we will be:

  • Converting units of measure
  • Investigating  perimeters and area
  • Describing movement of shapes

We have a new system for homework. Please see the additional letter and ‘Learning Challenge Grid.’ Homework will be due back in on a Friday.

Please use Mathletics on a weekly basis where homework activities will be set. The ‘Live Maths’ section helps children to practice and learn number facts. This recall supports extending learning and speed in more advanced work.

Headlice

To keep headlice under control, remember… once a week, take a peek!

It is really important to check for lice weekly, even if you do not think your child has them. If you do find headlice, please treat immediately and notify a member of staff so that other parents can be made aware. If your child has long hair, tying it up might reduce their chances of catching them.
