Welcome to Year 5!

Miss Mason and Miss Buica would like to welcome you to year 5. Along with ourselves, we would like to introduce you to our supporting staff, also known as teaching assistants, Mrs Kelley and Mr Lynch. We are all looking forward to figuring out each individual personality and understanding what makes your child tick.

Please help your child with learning their spellings, reading on a regular basis and completing any homework given, enabling us to achieve our full potential. Spellings will be given out on a Monday and tested the following Monday. English and Maths homework will be given out on Friday and should be handed in no later than the following Thursday. Children who bring it in sooner than expected will receive dojo’s for their efforts.

In Summer 2 we will start with a creative piece which, will begin with a trip to The Black Country Museum, where the children will get to explore all the wonders it has to offer. Finally, we will be looking at a range of fairy/folk tales that will be based on other cultures and will be reading the adventurous Robin Hood, where will look at what it means to be an outcast before ending the year with a final creative visual piece. Our final term looks at all the wonderful scientists and inventors that got us to where we are today. We’ll look at range of fun facts and how some inventions got their names. From David Attenbourough to Leonardo da Vinci we’ll hopefully answer some of their many questions they have.    

Please make sure your child has a full PE kit in school for their PE lessons. Year 5 will have P.E. on Mondays and Wednesday. Children will also require a swimming kit for their swimming lessons, which will be on Mondays. In Summer 1 5M will be going swimming. 5B will attend swimming on Mondays during Summer 2.

Please keep an eye out for all letters sent home and on the website for up and coming events such as; inspire workshops, reading with parents, where we welcome any member of the family or family friend to come and spend time with us while we help and encourage the next generation to learn through fun activities.
