Welcome to Year Five!
The year group is divided into 3 classes.
The Class teachers are:
Our teaching assistants are: Mrs Studley, Mrs Heckford, Mrs Manley and Mrs Lewis.
1:1 - Mrs Hasan
Reading records and reading books are expected to be in school every day.
During a week children are expected to complete at least 3 reads at home and these must be recorded in the child’s reading record and signed by parent/guardian.
The reading record will be checked each Thursday and if the 3 reads are not completed the child will go to the library to read during Thursday break time.
If this is a persistent concern you will be contacted to discuss.
Home learning will be set every Thursday on Google Classroom. For this term it will be English (spellings), Maths (X tables) and Computing (Purple Mash). Each Thursday we will have a spelling and x tables test, as well as teaching the children the skills needed for the Purple Mash computing element. We also expect your child to be engaging frequently with TT Rockstars.
History, Geography and Science will be taught as separate subjects.
Our History/Geography topics will be:
The Vikings and Anglo Saxons,
Scots and Celts
Our Science topics will be:
Properties and changes in materials
Forces in action
Changes and reproduction
We will also have a Global Citizenship topic which will be Black History.
Year 5 Activities
As you may well know, our Rockley trip usually takes place in September. However, due to current restrictions this obviously can't happen. We are currently looking at dates in May for this trip, but we will let you know as soon as details are finalised.
