Welcome To Our Year 5 Class Page!
Hello Year 5
This is our class page. We will not only share information, but our learning journey too! Keep a look out for your super learning! If there is anything you would like to see, please let Miss Stones know.
Just some information for the year ahead:
Homework: Collected and handed out on Fridays
Homework will include a short English task and an allocated task on Mathletics. In our time table, we have a dedicated slot to go through how to complete it, answer any questions and provide feedback. If anyone struggles, all adults in Year 5 are willing help however it will still need to be completed at home. For those who may have trouble accessing Mathletics, Miss Stones will spend Monday lunchtime in the ICT suite providing an opportunity for children to use the computers.
The children are asked to collect three signatures from adults at home to show they have spent some time reading. They can read anything they wish and reading sessions at home can be as little as five minutes. Children who read more than 3 times a week will receive Class Dojo points.
We will also have a spelling quiz on Tuesdays. Spellings will be explained and handed out on the same day. We request that spelling books are handed in so we can stick the next list in for you. Anyone who forgets will be given a slip and those who are unfortunately absent will have one with their name on for their return that they need to collect.
PE: Tuesdays and Fridays
Even though our dedicated PE time will be on Tuesday, there may be other opportunities for Year 5 to take advantage of. It is for this reason that the school requests PE kits are in school throughout the week and laundered at weekends.
What a super day of Arts and History!
We had a great time at Temple Newsam; some of us now even want to live there! During the morning, we organised a time line about the house and learnt all about the importance of portraits during Tudor times+. A member of our class posed in full Tudor clothing for us to sketch and we continued to work in groups on huge portraits to take back to class. After lunch, we broke into two teams. We had a full tour of the building and participated in quiz that required us to find clues in the environment while another group dressed up in Tudor clothes. Once dressed, we took to the hall to learn a Tudor dance.
