Welcome to Year 5 with Mr Dunbar and Mrs Anderton!
Year 5 is very important as we prepare ourselves ready for Year 6. We hold many responsibilities such as Sports Leaders, School Council and Eco Warriors.
This year, we are working tremendously hard to embed and improve our knowledge in lessons including writing, maths, reading and SPAG. As well as this, we will be learning about some fantastic topics in our wider curriculum such as The Ancient Maya and The Tudors.
During Year 5, we have opportunities to experience many exciting trips while performing in whole school assemblies in front of the school and adults; this includes the Christmas Carol Concert.
Homework is set every Friday and the children are expected to complete and return it to school by the following Friday. Your child must complete all homework tasks assigned as this will further embed the learning we have undertaken in lessons.
We believe that to be successful, children must be able to read fluently. We have a Class Reader, which we read every half term.
Every child has already been given a reading book; please can this be in school every day. Children will have a library book they can freely read too. We encourage children to read so they become more fluent readers, which helps in every lesson.
Children have the opportunity to use Timetable Rock stars; each child has a specific log in where they can build up points to create their avatars. Mr Dunbar and Mrs Anderton monitor the progress children make. Timetables are extremely important as children progress throughout each year group.
PE is on Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child comes into school in their PE kits on these days.
Look out for our activities on Twitter as we regularly update this.
