Welcome To The Year 5 Class Page!
Hello to our new children in Year 5.
I hope everyone has had a relaxing and safe holiday and you are all ready for school. I have some amazing activities and lessons planned and I am sure you will enjoy them! Obviously school is going to be different for everyone when we return. Your entrance to school is in the main hall (see picture below) and this is also where you will leave. Mrs Bury and myself will be at the door to welcome you all into school. When you come into class, hang your coats and bags up and then wash your hands. You will be told which is your desk. The room has been specially organised to keep everyone as safe as possible. We will be working outside as much as we can, PE will be Wednesday and Thursday. We are really excited to meet you all and I am looking forward to being your class teacher. I am sure that you will really enjoy our year together!
Hello Year 5
This is our class page where we will share our learning journey. Keep a look out for your super learning!
Just some information for the year ahead:
Spellings will be tested on Fridays and new spellings will be handed out on Mondays.
Homework will be 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, Mr Poppleton will spend Thursday lunch time in the IT suite providing an opportunity for children to use the computers.
The children are asked to collect two 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 Fridays. Spellings will be explained and handed out on Monday. 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: Wednesdays & Thursdays
Please wear your outdoor PE kits for the whole day on these days. There will be no PE in the first week back so this will be needed from the second week (week commencing 14th September).
Christmas Children used marbling techniques to produce a card and a calendar.
Children researched the necessary attributes for a Moon or Mars Buggy. Children then used these features in their design. Children then started to learn how to use axels and the need for different sized wheels, they then constructed their model.
History / Art
Children researched different types of home the Tudors lived in. They then designed and produce their own models to represent the buildings and materials used during this time.
Children took part in activities throughout the day, looking at being United against bullying.. Children designed their own odd socks or a superher.
National Fitness Day: Children took part in a street dance workshop.
PE: Children are studying invasion games and this week we are developing our Basketball skills. Children have worked hard on bouncing and then dribbling with the ball into space. They have tried to keep their heads up looking out for their friends to make a pass to.
PHSE: School Council Elections. Children have discussed the ways they could improve school if they are successful in the forth coming school elections. Candidates have had to present the reasons why they would make a good School Councillor for Year 5.
