Year 5 2018-19

Welcome to a new school year.

The teachers this year are Miss German (5G) and Mrs Hyde and Mrs Clark (5HC).

The children will be taught in three sets for Mathematics, with Mrs John teaching the extra set. The children are also taught in three sets for English, with Mrs Wingham and Miss Gould teaching the extra set for this subject.

Throughout the year, the children will cover lots of exciting topics including The Vikings, Space, Inventions and Ancient China. These topics will inspire a range of creative art and DT projects.

Special events in Year 5 include trips to the local secondary schools, a trip to Barley Lands and a Viking themed day.

As a school we aim to continue to improve attendance this year. Please help us by ensuring your child is in school, on time and ready to learn.

Please send your child to school with a healthy packed lunch (no fizzy drinks, sweets or chocolate bars), or send £2 in a named envelope for school dinner if you haven’t paid using parent pay. Children can bring in up to 50p to buy a snack from the tuck trolley if they wish.

Useful curriculum information

Forest school will be on Tuesdays. Further details of class dates to follow.

Indoor PE is on a Wednesday.

The children will be participating in Walk a Mile on a Thursday.

Outdoor PE is on a Friday.

Please make sure your child has the correct kit, labelled with their name, which stays in school until the holiday, when it will be sent home for a wash!

Homework

The children will be given half termly creative homework which will be celebrated as a year group at the end of each half term.

In addition to this, the children will receive an overview of the objectives they will be covering in maths in order for them to continue their learning at home. This will be checked every Wednesday by the class teacher.  We offer a homework club straight after school on a Monday and Tuesday if you wish your child to attend. The children are expected to read at home 3 times each week. Please record this in their diaries so they can be rewarded.

Clubs

In year 5, we offer a range of exciting clubs to allow the children to collect hours for their Children’s University Passport. We look forward to seeing your child graduate in the near future.

Spelling

Spellings will continue to be sent home every week on a Monday, with the test occurring on following Monday.  Please ensure the home spelling book is back in school for the day of the spelling test.
