CGP workout books.
Children should complete the relevant workouts in both their English and Maths book and return them to school according to the timetable on the homework page.
All children should be reading their school reading-scheme book for at least 15 minutes per day, five days per week. To encourage children to develop a love for reading, they should also be encouraged to read their own reading book, either from home or school. This book should be a book that they enjoy, but, ideally, one that that also challenges them. Children are encouraged to read a wide range of genres and authors. Finally, children should check the meaning of unfamiliar words in the books they are reading, They can do this in a dictionary, online or by asking an adult.
Reading, including any new vocabulary the children have come across, should be logged on Go-Read each day. In Year 5, children should be able to log their own reading. Parents are still encouraged to read with their children as often as possible and to ask questions of them, as well as just listening to them read aloud. It would be appreciated if parents could log these sessions and any questions they have asked on Go-Read in the same way they used to do this in the old reading records.
This week's spelling words are:
communicate, community, competition, conscience, conscious, controversy, likeable, laughable, adorable, justifiable, manageable, believable.
You should also have your own spellings from words to log and learn that you will need to focus on.
Please remember that spelling words can be tested with prefixes or suffixes added.
The highlighted words are Orange Words and are taken from the statutory spelling list for Year 5/6. Spellings will be tested on Fridays.
We have entered a national competition on Sumdog. You'll need to answer 1000 questions by next Thursday. Try to do a little bit each day rather than doing it all in one go. Remember that our scores are based on the number of questions you get right, so take your time and don't just click on random answers to get to the games part.
Arithmetic- Please continue to practise the type of questions that you have got wrong on your most recent arithmetic test.
If you would like to stand for election to either the school council or Eco-Committee (or both), please ensure that you have your speech written and ready to be delivered to the rest of the class in the first week back.
