Please see the documents below for further information to your child's learning in Year 5.
I expect all children to read for a minimum of 20 minutes every day. They can read a variety of books of their choice. They can read it independently, read to a family member or even be read to! Spending time with a book has boundless health benefits and can help children succeed in school. In other words:
Reading is the key that can unlock success!
If you would like some great texts to read to your children, check out the Recommended Reading Lists that are uploaded below. I've categorised the fiction books into genres so you can find books similar to what you know you already enjoy. I have also included the book's Accelerated Reader level where possible.
If you're reading a book at home and are interested in its Accelerated Reader level, use the website www.arbookfind.co.uk to find out.
Many teachers at Kingfield love to read and are always willing to give out book recommendations! Don't be shy to ask an adult for a book they think you might like.
Homework & Spelling
Homework is an integral part to consolidating learning from school. You should aim to spend at least 30 minutes on homework and spelling each week.
Homework is set by Mrs Speirs on a Wednesday using MyMaths. It needs to be completed by the following Tuesday. If it is not handed in on time, you may miss your break to complete it.
In addition, you will be given 5 spelling words to learn from a rule, pattern or theme. Your weekly spelling test will test the same rule, pattern or theme alongside mystery spellings.
You'll need to dedicate some time each week to practicing your spellings. Use the spelling list below to learn this week's spellings.
We will continue to look at our four key values: Respect, Resilience, Empathy and Reflection.
Through Class Worship, assemblies and cross-curricular lessons, our values will be embedded into all aspects of our day-to-day learning, helping us to become the best that we can be.
