Welcome to Penguins
Welcome back! I hope that you all had a restful and relaxing Christmas holiday!
Year 5 will continue to be the busiest year yet at Westfield! It is vital that all children are supported to complete their reading and spellings daily at home, in addition to their weekly Maths and English homework. Stickers in the children’s homework diaries remind them of their logins and passwords for valuable online resources such as TTRockstars and ActiveLearn (Maths and Reading activities). These websites can be used to practise and consolidate children’s skills across the curriculum but especially with using and applying their Maths knowledge.
Our topic this term is ‘Destination: Outer Space!’ We will be learning about our Solar System and famous astronauts, for example Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake. We will also be exploring how transport has changed over time. Please join us for our Dad’s Open Afternoon on Friday 24th January where we will be producing some art related to our topic.
We look forward to working with you and your children during the Spring Term. If you have any concerns or worries about anything at all, please come and chat to us, so that we can work together to resolve the problem.
Wishing you and your children a great Spring term in Year 5!
