Y5 Eclipse MTP Autumn – USA

AM & PM Routines

Early morning routine: Arrival begins at 08.20am. Please let your child become independent in looking after their own belongings and letting them walk to the classroom on their own.

End of day routine: The teaching staff will bring your child to the field for pick up unless they are participating in an afterschool club. Please ensure that you notify the school if there are any changes to your normal routine.

Uniform

Uniform: We ask that you regularly check that all clothing is named, especially jumpers and coats, including their PE kit, and that all children are provided with a hat in hot weather and a coat when it is cold or wet.  We like to get the children out at playtime everyday, even in light rain!

PE

PE: Our class will have PE on a Tuesday and a Thursday so please make sure they come in their kits on these days.

Reading

Reading: We will be doing various reading activities every day so please make sure that your child has their books in school, daily. However, please note that these books are mainly for home-reading and we will not always hear them read at school. In addition to this, we will have a class text that all of the children will access together. These books have been chosen in line with Hampshire guidance and the comprehension questions/writing tasks will be adjusted to suit your child’s reading ability.

Food & Drink

Fruit time: The children can bring a piece of fruit or a healthy snack to eat during morning play.

Drinks: Your child will need to bring in a water bottle so that they can drink throughout the day.

Toys & Belongings

Toys/Equipment: Please can you make sure that your child does not bring in any toys to school. We will provide writing equipment but the children are welcome to bring in their own pencil cases to keep in their bags; however, your child will be responsible for their own equipment.

Trips

Trips: We plan to do plenty of exciting school trips this year (the majority of them are in the summer term) and will try to keep the costs as low as possible and give you plenty of warning to allow time to save for these trips.

Homework

Homework: Spelling homework will be set on a Monday and we would ask that you encourage your child to learn their words-they will be tested the following Monday morning.. Maths homework will be set on a Thursday to be returned the following Wednesday. ’ Take home’ tasks will be set at the start of every half term. Details of this will always be on your copy of the overview.

Year 5 working on different money problems during maths day. We opened the day with a quiz, a big discussion about money and denominations of money (some thought you could get £80 notes!), where they shop and different ways in which they would use money. It was a chance for them to understand more about the world around them and how things have changed and are still changing. 
The class went on to look at which was better online shopping or instore shopping. Their conclusion was a trail of receipts was important because you needed to keep an eye on your money! Our next step with Natwest Moneysense  is to look at how you can keep track of your savings online.
Last term we studied the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings and the children enjoyed art and DT projects.
Textiles – Illuminated letters using mola design
Sculpture – Viking clay heads
DT – Viking boats with levers and pulleys
