Year 5/ 6

Welcome to Year 5 and 6.  We have had a really positive two weeks back at school. All pupils have settled back in and have been ready to listen and learn. They have enjoyed being back with their friends and I have enjoyed being able to teach in front of real children!

Children will be bringing their reading books home each night and have been asked to read for a minimum of 10 minutes each evening. They need to continue to learn their times tables so they know the answers as quick as clicking your fingers. Homework will be sent electronically on this page and no homework is to be returned. Please practice and test spellings at home before they are tested in school each Tuesday.

My email address is d.squire@bowlinggreen.calderdale.sch.uk if you have any queries or questions.

 

 

Reading

We are often asked whether there are any books which we can recommend for pupils. The website: https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk/ shows lots of good choices for individual year groups.

 

Spellings

Please find the Year 5 and 6 spelling lists.  These will not be the spellings which are necessarily on the tests each week as these link to particular spelling patterns.  The spellings below are words which children should be using correctly in their written work.
