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.

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 Autumn 1 5M will be going swimming. 5B will attend swimming on Mondays during Autumn 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.

Autumn 2- English

The first text we will be looking at is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K Rowling. Whilst, reading this the children will be looking at a range of grammar and different text types. We will be creating Explanation texts and narratives. In order to do so we will be looking at how to plan and edit our work, what cohesive devices are and how to use them correctly.

Then, we will be moving on to Twas the Night Before Christmas, where we will be looking at how to create a narrative poem. Children will be expected to use adjectives, alliteration, similes and their senses, to describe their character and its’ adventures. They will need to understand how it tells a story, but in verses, using rhyme and rhythm to create mood and tone.
