This week in Cheshire:
This week we have introduced the 6 Nurture Principles which we have been focusing on in PSHE. We have been discussing how these can help us look after ourselves and our wellbeing. Our home learning topic task is focused on one of these this week! See the link below.
In Geography, we have continued with our topic about farming and we have discussed what farmers do throughout the year to rear animals and grow crops and how the type of work they need to do changes with the seasons. In maths, we are revisiting fractions and thinking about how we can use our fraction knowledge to multiply a fraction by an integer (a whole number). In English, we have been writing arguments and sharing our opinions on whether we think Liam should confess to keeping his age a secret or whether he should continue the mission to space!
Our Weekly Timetable
Your spellings this week consist of Common Exception Words (CEWs) and words relating to spelling rules that we have learnt in spelling lessons. Can you notice the spelling rules in the words below?
If you forget which group you are in, remember to ask your teacher to remind you.
Need some help with learning your weekly spellings? Try writing each word splitting each word into its separate syllables and seeing which letters make up each syllable.
We will be checking the children’s knowledge of the spellings next week on either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
Please practice your 7 and 8 times tables this week.

Children in Year 5 should be reading for 30 minutes a day. This should be a combination of reading to an adult or independently. Reading aloud really helps to develop reading skills and deepen comprehension.
Children should bring their Accelerated Reader reading book and bookmark to and from school and home each day. Pupils are asked to change their book when it is finished using the guidance and support provided by the teaching team in each class.
Parents please log your child's reading on the BOOM Reader Parent Portal or by using the BOOM reader parent app on your tablet/ mobile.
Grammar and Punctuation
Home Learning folders will come home each Thursday and need to be returned the following Tuesday
