Miss Day, Ms Blunt, Miss Fraser and Miss Patterson welcome you to the Year 5 page, where you can find useful links and information about some of the things that are happening in our year group.
Homework will be sent home every Friday in a pouch wallet and will focus on Maths, Literacy and Spellings. We expect homework to be returned by the following Wednesday. This will give the teachers sufficient time to see the work that has been completed. Please don't forget to come and see your teacher as soon as possible if you are struggling with any homework so that we can support you.
Spellings will also be put onto this web page each week (see below) and spelling tests will take place every Friday based on the spellings given. Your child should also write a sentence for each spelling in their Spelling Sentence book and return this homework to their Literacy teacher on the following Wednesday.
Your child has got an Oxford Reading Tree book, which has been provided by their literacy teacher based on their standard of reading. It is your child's responsibility to change this book once they have read it.
Indoor PE will take place on a Thursday afternoon. Can you ensure your child has a plain white t-shirt and shorts and indoor trainers with non-marking soles (standard black pumps would be preferred).Outdoor P.E will take place on a Friday afternoon (weather depending) and therefore can you please make sure that if you take your kit home on Friday that you bring it back into school on Monday morning. Can you also remember (especially if you have pierced ears) that all jewellery must be removed before a P.E lesson starts. Plasters can not be used to cover piercings.
During Autumn 1, the children had the opportunity to take part in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) project. They were supported by real life engineers from the local community. Over the six week period, Year 5 worked in small groups attempting to solve a global issue by making prototypes out of different materials of their choice. Here are some examples of our work:
This term, we are studying Ancient Egypt. During this topic we will be studying big questions.
