You should have received a letter last term advertising the Connaught Double Clubs. We have received notification from Connaught that there are still spaces available if you are interested.
Their numeracy club starts next Wednesday (11th January) 5pm - 6pm in the Maths Department at Connaught and continues at the same time for the following 4 weeks.
Pupils wishing to attend need to come with a parent, grandparent or older sibling.
Anyone wishing to book a space can do so by contacting Rich Scarborough (Senior teacher at the Connaught School) directly on email@example.com or 01252 343723.
Thank you from the Year 5 team.
Autumn Term 2016
Half Term Home Learning
Year 5 are not setting compulsory home learning over half term. However, as a part of their reading we would like them to read this text with an adult and discuss unfamiliar words. Please sign the home link book to show that you have completed this.
Thank you from the Year 5 Team.
Home Learning Timetables
Our family support worker Mrs Lee would like to share these printable resources for you to use with your children to help plan and make their home learning more manageable.
When your child receives their home learning:
Encourage them to plan what home learning they will do, when and how much.
Spread the home learning out over the week – little and often e.g. 10-15 minutes per session.
Give a small, immediate reward.
Remind your child that if they don’t do their home learning at the agreed time, there won’t be a reward.
