Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!
Welcome back to a new and exciting year. We are all super excited to see what this year will bring and launch our new project. Below are some helpful links to help with your child's learning at home. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and chat with me. 
Please also find below the project map and letter for terms 1 and 2. 
Miss Rose 
This term our core text has been Rose Blanche. Through reading it, we have learnt about World War Two from a german child's perspective. This week we re-wrote the story of Rose Blanche in our own words and created our own endings. We then published our stories on the laptops. Please find the final versions below.

At Banwell the children's well being is always our priority and this year we are making mental well being a focus. Below is a link to the 'Wheel of Well-being' website that has some interesting information and activities to help with this. 
Reading is so important!
We encourage you to listen to your child read and discuss the text at least three times a week. Sometimes it is hard to know what to ask them so below is some ideas of the type of questions that you could be asking your child whilst they are reading with you.
Times Tables
Being able to recall the times tables is a huge skill and will have benefits across all areas of the Maths curriculum. In Year for the expectation is that children can recall their times table up to the 12x. Make sure that your child is practising their times tables regularly at home both verbally and written.
