Welcome to Year 5 with Mr Dunbar and Mrs Anderton!
Year 5 is very important as we prepare ourselves ready for Year 6. The children will hold many responsibilities such as Sports Leaders, School Council, Eco Warriors and Commonwealth Council.
This year, we are working tremendously hard to embed and improve our knowledge in lessons. 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.
We believe that to be successful, children must be able to read fluently. We have a Class Read, which we read every half term.
Every child has already been given a reading book; please can this be in school every day so children are reading both in school and at home. 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.
Homework will be uploaded onto Teams every Friday and will be due back on the following Wednesday. The homework will be relevant to what the children have learnt during the week
PE is on Thursday and Friday. 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.
