We love to read in Year 5. We do regular guided reading sessions each week where we look at a range of fiction and non-fiction texts that link to our topic work.
In order to support your child with their reading, please encourage your child to read at home every night. They should be bringing their reading book home from school every day. Please sign the reading record to say that you have listened to them read their school reading book five times.
Badgers are currently reading Secrets of a Sun King By Emma Carroll which is linked to our Autumn topic 'Ancient Egypt'!
We are looking forward to our author visit in November.....Peter J Murray is coming back to Willow!!!
We plan to take inspiration from Peter, when writing our mystery stories 'Secrets of the Tomb' in Autumn 2.
In Maths, we are always looking for new ways to demonstrate our knowledge and remember what we have learnt. Here is an example of how we make maths fun so we can retrieve facts from our long term memory!
