About Y5

R.E:

                                                                  Year 5 – God’s Covenant    

 

The children will learn that God loves us and calls us into friendship with him.                           

The children will understand that the Ten Commandments are a gift from God to help us.

They will learn how Jesus summarised the Ten Commandments (Matthew 22: 36-40) and begin to understand how we can show our love for God by keeping his commandments with his help.

The children will also learn that God sent his Son Jesus into the world because he loves us, and that we celebrate this gift at Christmas.

At home:

You could help your children by:                           

• talking to them about how we try to live by the Ten Commandments

 

Reminders

Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.

Please label ALL clothing and belongings.

 

Physical Education (PE)

Our P.E day is Thursday, please ensure your child comes in to school on Thursday wearing their PE Kit. The PE kit includes black shorts, a white T-shirt and a pair of trainers. As PE lessons will largely be held outside, your child may need something warmer (eg track suit) in cooler weather.For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.

 

Homework

Homework will be sent out on Friday and returned by the following Thursday. It is used to consolidate your child’s learning from that week. Please allow and encourage your child to attempt their homework independently before supporting them if required.

 

Times Tables

Children are expected to know all of their tables up to 12 x 12 and associated division facts by the end of Year 4. Please ensure that the children keep their recall skills sharp.  Every child should have a login to Times Tables Rockstars. Please encourage them to access this resource often.

 

Reading

The children are expected to read independently at home on a regular basis (15 minutes per night). They should keep a record in their diary of what they have read. Please listen to them read out loud once a week and record this in their diary. Discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of.
