Welcome to Year 5!
We are looking forward to the year ahead.
Teacher: Mrs Hall
Learning Support Assistant:
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.
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.
Our PE day this year is Wed. Please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit on Thursdays. They can wear black tracksuit bottoms or leggings on colder days. No PE kits are to be brought into school.
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.
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.
Here we are using a range of resources to support our learning of multiplication.
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.
