This term's home learning has been linked to our theme 'Between a Rock aand a Hard Place'. In school have been learning about the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age and the children have selected a specific area of interest to reseach furtherfor their home learning. We had a wide variety of creative projects including videos, PowerPoints, models, fact files, stories, artwork and display boards.
Some children researched how fossils ere formed, discussed specific types of fossils or designed their own fossils.
Other children researched how dwellings developed throughout the Stone Age and made models of the different types of 'homes' during the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic times.
It was also lovely to see that many children had been inpsired by our art learning to continue to research cave art around the world and the techniques that were used to paint images. We also had many projects that were linked to our learning about Stone Henge and Skara Brae.
It was lovely to see all the projects on display this week for parents to enjoy.
Well done for all you hard work Year 5!

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. It is expected that children use Timestables Rockstars and RM Maths each week; they have their own passwords to access these activities.
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 and share their opinions about the texts they read.
Children will visit the school library each week – 5 Dali on Monday, 5 Escher on Wednesday and 5 Gaudi on Friday.
PE is each Tuesday afternoon. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school (clearly labelled) with trainers. In the colder months the children will need appropriate clothing for the cold weather.
