Year 5 - Autumn Curriculum Newsletter 
A warm welcome back to the Autumn 1 half term from the Year 5 team!  We hope you find this letter informative; please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions relating to the curriculum. 

Our expectation at Broadford is that every child should do the following every night: 
● 15 minutes reading to themselves or an adult (signed in the reading record) 
● 15 minutes practicing spellings in their spelling book 
● 15 minutes rehearsing times tables facts (including multiplication and division) 

Mathletics and Times Table Rock Stars:
Every child has now received their login details for Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars, which means they can access their accounts outside of school. Both websites offer valuable resources that can support your child’s learning in maths so please encourage your child to use them. 

Spellings will be given out on Mondays. The children should practice their words every evening. Spelling books and reading records must be brought in on Fridays, which is also when the weekly test happens. This will be closely monitored.

P.E and Art Lessons
Redwood and Willow will have PE and computing lessons every week on a Thursday afternoon. 
Please ensure that your child is in possession of a full, named PE kit with plimsolls for their lessons. Art lessons occur on a Monday afternoon.

Parental help: 
It is always extremely valuable to have parents who are able to volunteer time to help hear the children read, or support them with their times tables. If you think that you are able to give a small amount of regular time to support the children then it would be warmly welcomed. 

Stay & Learn sessions
We welcome all Year 5 parents into class on the following date to work with your children. Maths 3/10/2019

Curriculum Information
We have included a summary of the topics which the children will be covering this term. If you would like to make any suggestions of what you or your child would like to learn in relation to the topics taught, please inform your child’s class teacher. We welcome any suggestions you may have. 
We look forward to meeting you over the next few weeks; please do come and see us if you have any questions at all or if you would like to offer yourself as additional support on any upcoming trips. 

Yours sincerely, 
Miss Higgins Miss Breen Miss Mullan
