Year 5 – ‘Istanbul’ and ‘Moscow’


Children will continue to receive weekly homework. This will be set on a Friday and will consist of a spelling list, a piece of English work and an online maths activity. The maths activity will be through Mathletics. Please help your child to be prepared and give them a prompt to ensure they have their Homework Diary every Friday.

Keep encouraging your child to read daily. It is essential in both developing fluency and expression.  Children should now be confident with all their times tables so should challenge themselves on TimesTable Rockstars to be the best pop star they can!

Swimming & PE

Istanbul and Moscow will have swimming on Tuesdays. Both classes have outdoor PE on Friday. Children should take responsibility for ensuring they have the required kit in school. It is suggested that children with earrings leave them out for that day.

Water bottles

Children are allowed to have water bottles in class as it is good for them to keep hydrated throughout the day. However, they should only contain water: no juice please!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate in coming in to speak to us. Many thanks for your continued support.
