This week, year 5 have began a new challenge, which we have called 'the magic mile'.
For 15 minutes at a time, we walk, jog or run around the running track. If we manage to complete 11.5 laps, we have ran a mile! The aim is that each time we complete the magic mile, the children will try their best to beat their own personal best (without worrying about the achievements of others).
This will improve the children's fitness and endurance levels, as well as concentration levels in the classroom. We look forward to updating you on everybody's progress!

Helping at Home
In Year 5, the children are set weekly spellings on a Monday which are tested on a Friday; on Thursday we also set an additional piece of home learning which is due on a Tuesday- this term we will be focusing particularly on our timestables.
In addition to this, please continue to support your child with their reading by regularly reading to them, listening to them read and asking them questions about their reading.
Although many children read fluently and independently at this age, in order to build higher level comprehension skills it is important that children are given the opportunity to discuss what they have read.
