Year 5 – Week beginning 18/4/16

We have had a busy yet exciting week in school bringing the Spring term to an end ready for Easter Holiday!

We hope you have a safe and restful Easter! See you back in school on the 9th May.

Home Learning:

In year 5 we would like the children to be constantly practicing their times tables, number bonds, spellings and reading.

We suggest a minimum of 30mins of reading each day; this will consolidate strategies learnt in the class and ultimately make the children better and more confident readers.

It would be beneficial to practice number bonds at least three times a week. Number bonds are two number that add together to make another; for example 394+606, 8+2, 65+35.

We advise that the children need to practice their times tables regularly in order to support their knowledge and understanding when performing operations (times and divide).
