Welcome to Year 5!

We are looking forward to the year ahead.

Teacher: Ms Daly

Learning Support Assistant: Mrs Stanley and Mrs LaHive

Below you will find lots of information about our class. This will include information on the Year 5 curriculum, our school schemes, reading book days, PE days, homework menu and water bottles. We will update the website regularly and notify you of any important dates for your diary. If you are having to stay at home due to self-isolation, please contact the school office. Information about lessons and current work will be provided through Class Dojo.

 

Anything that you wish to share or talk about, please message us on Class Dojo. We endeavour to regularly check all messages and we will reply as soon as we can. We are here for your children, and we will always listen.

 

Book Bags

Reading books will be changed regularly. Please send your child's book bag to school with them every day.  We encourage that you ask your child questions about their book and that you encourage your child to ask their own questions. It is important to develop comprehension skills, as it supports your child with reading and writing. We encourage you to visit our amazing local library to expand your child’s knowledge and love of books.

 

The Spelling Shed and Maths Shed

Your child will be bringing home a password. This will enable them to log onto the spelling shed and maths shed. We will set a variety of fun activities on this site for you to share at home with your child.

 

PE

Our PE day this year is Wednesday. Please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit on Wednesdays. They can wear black tracksuit bottoms or leggings on colder days. No PE kits are to be brought into school.

 

Water Bottles

There are studies to say, that drinking water and being well hydrated, improves the mood, memory, and attention in children. We would ask that you send in a water bottle for your child each day. We request that your child brings in water only and not juice or fizzy drinks. The bottle needs to have your child’s name on. The children will have access to their water throughout the day.

 

Homework Menu

Every half term, a homework menu will be given out with a selection of tasks to be completed, across all areas of the curriculum. It is your choice as to how many you complete; however, you must complete at least one piece and hand it in to school by the end of the half term. Your child’s completed work will be celebrated. 

Music

This Spring Term the children will be learning how to play the guitar, here they are enjoying their first guitar lesson. Well done 5D!

Art
During Art this Spring Term we are studying the life and work of Alberto Giacometti, the children have enjoyed researching his life and the movement of his sculptures.

 

Year 5 have created wonderful sculptures, inspired by Giacometti's thin and metallic creations.

Computing

The children have been working hard to learn how to code.

PE

In PE the children have enjoyed learning how to play badminton. Here they are playing their final tournament!

RE

During our study of 'Life Choices' we looked at the blessing of the rings in the marriage ceremony. Here we are role-playing the blessing of the rings. 

Maths

We have been investigating factors, common factors, prime numbers, square numbers and cube numbers. Here we are investigating cube numbers.

 

Ancient Greece

As part of our topic on Ancient Greece we made greek salads in DT. Here we are prepping our salads - they were delicious.

Science

 

Here we are measuring our shadows. This was a  shadow investigation that demonstrated the spinning of the Earth and hence why we have day & night. 

Nature Friendly School

 

Last week we had a visitor from Nature Friendly Schools who led a workshop for us.

Here we are enjoying being outside.
