Cookham Rise Primary School

Beech 5

Welcome to Beech 5!


Our topics this year will be:


Autumn 2019 - Walk like an Egyptian


Spring 2020 - Frozen Worlds


Summer 2020 - Sail Away


Please note that PE in the Autumn Term is timetabled for Wednesday and Friday, but it would be helpful if children have their school PE kit (green shorts or skort and white T-shirt plus plain black track suit for colder days) in school every day. We aim to complete the Daily Mile on days that we do not have a PE lesson.


For homework, children will be asked to complete either a reading comprehension or some maths questions each week.  They will also receive spelling work every ten days.  However, reading remains the most important activity and children should read for at least 15 minutes every day.  Please continue to read aloud to your child - sharing books helps them to learn new vocabulary and talking about reading together supports the development of comprehension skills.  Some suggested books for Year 5 children are in the document below.  How many can you read over the year?


During the year, we will be reading Secrets of a Sun King and the Polar Bear Explorer's Club in class.
