Below you will find the links to 2 websites that children have their own personal logins to.
Read theory allows children to practice their comprehension skills by answering a number of questions about a text. They will receive instant feedback to inform them whether their answer is correct or not and it will give them a model of the correct answer.
Sumdog allows children to practice and improve their maths. It will give children a particular focus based on an assessment they completed when the children joined during school time at the beginning of the year. Sumdog will track their progress and increase the difficulty of the questions as necessary.
Please try and encourage your children to use both of these websites as much as possible.
If your child has lost their login for either website please remind them to ask me for a second copy.
Welcome to Year 5!
We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead. We are beginning the year looking at World War II, a topic children always find interesting. We will have details of our trip coming out to you soon.
Please support your child this year with learning their weekly spellings which come home on a Friday. It is also important that children read aloud to an adult regularly and have the opportunity to discuss what they are reading.
If I can help you with anything throughout the year please do not hesitate to speak to me at the end of the school day.
I look forward to getting to know the children and their families as the year progresses.
