Welcome to Year Five

PE

Our PE days are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Children will need to arrive in their PE kit on this day.  Year 5 will also attend swimming on Tuesdays and therefore will need to bring their swimming bag on this day. No jewellery at all on PE days please.

Music

We are learning to play the Ukulele on a Thursday morning which is a fantastic opportunity. Please ensure you have your Ukulele on this day.

Homework

Year 5 Homework will be set weekly including SpellingShed, Times Table Rockstars and MyMaths. These tasks will link to the learning we have done in the classroom and should only take a few minutes each day. On MyMaths please try your best to get higher than 75%, but if not please have another go for some extra practice. Please spend some time reading each day and practicing the spellings that will be sent home each week.

There will also be some extra tasks set on Teams that can be completed throughout the half term. These include a reading task, some maths questions and some DT! Where possible, please upload a photo of any work you have completed.

Don’t forget to read at home too.

Autumn 1

Welcome to Year 5! I hope you have had an enjoyable and restful summer holiday. Hopefully, you are ready to start learning in Year 5 and are looking forward to getting started.

In our Maths lessons, we will begin by looking at place value and building our understanding of comparing, ordering and rounding numbers. We will practice our key skills during Daily Calculation and recap methods learnt in Year 4 before moving onto addition and subtraction methods.

During English lessons, we will build our reading skills using a text linked to our History topic which is called Who Let the Gods Out. We will also spend time planning and writing our own Greek myths using SPaG techniques that we practice throughout the week.

We will also be learning about Ancient Greece in History and building our food and computing skills in Enrichment. We will have time to explore our sketchbooks in Art lessons too.

We will have PE on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday so please wear your PE kit with hair tied up and jewellery out. Year 5 will also attend swimming on Tuesday mornings so please bring your swimming kit and towel. On Thursday’s we will have Ukulele so don’t forget to bring your instrument!

Miss Williams and Mrs Blakeley will be available to speak to you at the door for minor queries but should a longer appointment be required, please contact the office.

Looking forward to an exciting half term!
