Meet Our Team

Autumn 1 2018

Welcome to Year 5! I hope you all had a great time over the holidays and are ready to learn new things. I am very excited to be meeting you all again.

For the first week of school, it is Citizenship week. We will be having lots of fun this week learning about a local author, Roger Hargreaves, and his creations… Mr Men and Little Miss! Which character do you think you are? Mr Happy? Little Miss Sunshine?

After Citizenship week, we will be starting a new topic called “What on Earth?” This topic will help us to understand where we live and what else is on our planet. Can you name all of the counties in England? How many countries can you name and do you know some capital cities? We will be learning about some famous architects and making cityscapes in art and building bridges (literally not figuratively) in design and technology.

In English, we will be reading suspense stories and writing our own suspense stories. One of my favourites is Room 13 by Robert Swindells. If you haven’t read it yet, you must read it this year. It’s brilliant!

In Maths, we will start off with place value of numbers all the way up to millions! If you find maths tricky, I will show you plenty of ways to help you to achieve including drawing pictures.

Things you need to know:

PE will be on Thursday and Fridays so leave your kit at school.

Year 5 will be learning to play the Clarinet on Fridays.

Homework will be set on Fridays and will consist of TT Rockstars, Spelling Shed and Mymaths. You also need to be reading every day! Don’t forget reading does not have to just be your library book. As well as fiction stories, I like to read newspapers and I read online through the BBC Sport and BBC News apps too.
