Welcome to Year 5!

All the staff in Year 5 welcome you and your children to the Year 5 class page. The teachers in Year 5 are Mr. Smith and Mr. Hudman and the teaching assistant is Mrs. Kelly. We hope that this term will be an exciting and productive term working with you and your child.

Our expectations are that the children arrive in school on time (8:50 to 9:00 at the latest when the bell rings) in full school uniform ready to learn. As they are moving in the upper part of the school they are now role models, so we expect every child to show they are following the school’s rules and to be positive role models for the rest of the school.

This term we will be covering in English: Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone where we will write formal letters where we apply to Hogwarts and autobiographies about a made up teacher or pupil.   While in maths, we will be looking at the 4 basic operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Throughout this we are reinforcing the vital knowledge of place value. In science, we will be looking at the biology of plants and other species. While in geography, we will be exploring the wonders of the South America. This includes its human and physical features. While in RE, we will be developing our knowledge of one of the world’s biggest religions: Islam.  In PE, we have improving our fitness and knowledge of our bodies through gym exercises and movements to beat.

Key dates for this term:

5H has PE on Mondays and Thursdays.

5S has PE on Monday and Wednesdays.

This term 5S will be swimming on Mondays while next term 5H will be swimming. All children are expected to have correct kit for safety and hygiene reasons.

Our inspire workshop will be on the 15th October and we hope you all can make it.

Homework will be: Spellings (taught on Monday) children are expected to learn these for the test on the following Monday. The class teacher will also share these on class dojo. Reading books are expected to all be in on Monday but if your child reads more then it can be changed through the week. Ideally, we would like your child to read with someone three times a week. Times tables will be given out on Friday as well. Children have access to the Times Tables Rockstar website, they should feel free to send challenges to the teacher. Occassionally, we will send home more work linked to our topics, this will be less academic than the other things sent home.

Any issues please contact your child’s class teacher through class dojo. We are look forward to working with you this year.
