Spring Term 2020
Year 5 Work Year 5 Reflective Area
I am pleased to be joining your children at Sir Robert Hitcham CEVA Primary. It was great to see so many of you at my welcome meeting.
Our topic this term is The Rainforest and we will be learning about at the Amazon in Brazil. Alongside this we will be looking at evaporation of water and animals that live in the Amazon in Science.
In guided reading we will be reading Journey to the River Sea about a girl who goes to live in Brazil. Texts are provided for these sessions. In English we are reading The Explorer about a group of children who are lost in the Amazon jungle. There will only be one class text, so if your child would like to read ahead of the lessons in class then please feel free to buy them a copy (this can be second hand).
In Mathematics we will be looking at rounding up and down and solving multi-step problems using all four operations.
Indoor PE is on a Tuesday so your child needs to make sure their indoor PE kit is in school on this day. Outdoor PE is weather permitting so please make sure they have their outdoor PE kit in School every day. Long hair must be tied back and earrings removed for your child’s safety.
Your child can earn collective house points or individual DoJo points for good learning behaviour in class and around the School. In line with the behaviour policy your child may need to spend breaktime in the reflection room, if your child’s behaviour is not what is expected at Sir Robert Hitcham.
Alongside earning house points and individual points on our DoJo system your child’s work could be shared in our special Friday ‘Spotlight on Achievements’ assembly.
Time in the village library is every other Wednesday if your child wishes to change their book. However, reading and library books should be in School every day as there will be opportunities to read for five minutes throughout the day such as during afternoon registration. The amount of time our child spends reading at home will also be tracked in School.
If you feel you need to speak to me about a concern with your child, after school would be a good time to have a chat. It is better to deal with concerns quickly rather than letting issues escalate. If you feel you need a more formal appointment then please phone the office and they can make a convenient time for you to come and have a chat.
