Parent Information Powerpoint Year 5 and 6.
Your child will receive homework on a Tuesday and we ask for it to be returned on Friday. Homework will reinforce your child’s learning and is therefore extremely valuable.
Your child has also been given passwords to Times Table Rockstars and Purple Mash which they can access at home. Children can use Times Table Rockstars to assess their speed and accuracy when recalling their times tables and they can work on their Computing skills using Purple Mash. There are lots of other resources to be found on Purple Mash too, including games to help consolidate children's maths and English knowledge.
Reading is incredibly important and your support in this learning process is vital.
10 Benefits of Reading
- Children who read often and widely get better at it – after all, practise makes perfect.
- Reading exercises our brain – Reading is a much more complex task for the human brain than for example, watching TV. Reading strengthens brain connections and builds new connections.
- Reading improves concentration.
- Reading teaches children about the world around them.
- Reading improves vocabulary and language.
- Reading develops a child’s imagination.
- Reading helps children to develop empathy – as children develop they begin to consider how they would feel if placed in certain situations.
- Reading is fun – dreaming with your eyes open!
- Reading is a great way to spend time together.
- Reading promotes achievement in all subjects.
We issue every child with a banded reading book which they should read at home and bring back to school each day. Children also have access to the KS2 library - they can select a book of their choice. Every child has a reading journal which should be signed to show they have read at home. We check this each morning and reward children regularly for reaching reading milestones.
Your child has also been given an Oxford Reading Buddies password where even more reading resources can be found.
KS2 children have also been given passwords to use Reading Plus. This ensures quick progression in fluency and understanding.
Our P.E. lessons take place on Mondays and Thursdays. Your child will need to wear their school uniform as normal on these days and will change in to their P.E kit at school (plain blue shorts, white T-shirt and pumps). P.E kits will be needed during the first week back.
If you have any questions or would like any further information, please don’t hesitate to ask.
