Welcome to Year Five

PE

Our PE days are 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.

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

Homework will be set on Teams on a Friday and is due in the following Friday, therefore a week to complete. There will be a Maths and SPaG task and sometimes an extra with links to MyMaths, SpellingShed and TTRockstars. Please encourage children to complete their homework as it will support their learning in the classroom.
Don’t forget to read at home too.

Spring 1

Hi Year 5,

I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and are feeling ready to make a great start to the new year. Well done for all your hard work leading up to Christmas, I am very proud of you all! Thank you to those of you who have completed homework, it is brilliant to see. Please continue with this and try to read at home as much as possible.

Our science topic for this half term is living things including animals and humans where we will be learning about the life cycles of living things across the world. We will also be developing our collage and sculpture skills with an Art topic based around Miro. Our enrichment topics will begin with computing and hopefully some more food lessons which I am sure you are very excited about!

In our Maths lessons, we will be completing units around measurement and multiplication and division methods before moving onto fractions.

In our English lessons we will be looking at the features of traditional stories, practicing some skills from these and writing our own. We will also spend some time this half term looking at poetry and practicing extending our sentences to add extra information.

We will continue to have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday so please make sure you are in your PE kits with hair tied back and earrings out. We also have swimming on a Tuesday morning and Ukulele on a Thursday morning.

Homework will be set on a Friday including MyMaths, SpellingShed, TTRockstars and a task set on Teams.

I am sure we will make a positive start to the half term, well done so far!

Autumn 2

Hi Year 5,

Well done for a brilliant start to the year. We have had an enjoyable first half term with lots of hard work too. Thank you to those of you who have completed as much homework as possible, this is fantastic. Please keep it up!

Our science topic for this half term is Earth and Space which I am sure will be both interesting and exciting. We also have a geography topic, Mountains, where we will investigate the different types of mountains and famous mountains around the world. In enrichment, we are making our own supersized jewellery before looking at graphics on the computers.

In our Maths lessons, we will be completing a multiplication and division unit as well as some measurement and statistics practice.

Our English lessons will be based on some writing techniques such as newspaper reports and traditional stories. We will be building our SPaG skills by adding parenthesis into our sentences. Our reading lessons start with an author coming to visit us in school which is very exciting!

We will continue to have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday so please make sure you are in your PE kits with hair tied back and earrings out. We also have swimming on a Tuesday morning and Ukulele on a Thursday morning.

Homework will be set on a Friday including MyMaths, SpellingShed, TTRockstars and a task set on Teams.

Myself and Miss Dransfield have loved Year 5 so far, we hope you have too! We are looking forward to another half term of fun and learning.

Autumn 1

We have many exciting things planned for you to enjoy including some interesting topics to learn about and some fun activities to enjoy.

Our topics this year include Ancient Greece where we will be learning about achievements made during this period in history. We will start by looking at where Ancient Greece fits onto a timeline before digging deeper into life during that time. We also have an art topic planned looking at building our sketchbook skills, specifically feather drawing.

In our Maths lessons, we are continuing with our Power Maths books and we will be starting by recapping some learning from Year 4 before moving onto number and place value. Our English lessons will be focused on reading and revisiting and practicing SPaG skills. We will also be working towards writing our own Greek myths a bit later into the half term.

This year, we will have swimming on a Tuesday morning, therefore you need to bring your swimming bag on this day. We also have PE on a Tuesday afternoon and enrichment on a Thursday so please arrive in your PE kit on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Year 5 are learning to play the Ukulele on a Thursday morning too!

I am looking forward to developing our learning as a class and enjoying our time together. Myself and Miss Dransfield will be there to support you each day and we will do our best to create a happy and engaged classroom.

I hope that you enjoy your first half term as Year 5!
