                                         Year 5 Homework – 25/05/18


Dear Parents/Carers,


This was the last week of the first half of the Summer Term and the children finished it by playing their board games with children from Year 4. There was a lot of fun as well as learning in terms of reading instructions, team work and using directional vocabulary. A good fun was had by all!


Our SRE lessons this week were very successful with the children taking part very maturely in discussions and asking sensible questions.




The topic for the next term is ‘Pharaohs’. This is a very popular subject, which will generate a lot of exciting and adventurous learning.

For homework, we would like the children to explore the world of Ancient Egyptian writing (hieroglyphics) and produce a poster on the different symbols and what they meant. They could learn to write their name using hieroglyphics.



We are still continuing with geometry. The children should explore shapes of everyday objects and look at different types of angles being formed as well as parallel and perpendicular lines.  

Children should use the holidays to consolidate their times tables and number facts related to their number stars.



Children should be reading every day. The holidays can be a chance to make trips to the local library and to read a variety of texts. Please hear your child read to you whenever you get the opportunity.


Reminder: Please make sure that your children have their PE kit in school from Monday to Friday. Please have it washed over the half term.


We hope you have a lovely half-term break. Remember we are back on Tuesday the 5th of June, 2018.
