We also are lucky to have some brilliant support staff working with us in Year 5. Mr Hill supports with maths and English and Ms Bielecka supports with English. Miss Joseph supports in each class in the afternoons. Here is our Year 5 video full of all the useful information that you will need to know...
Spring Term 1 in Year 5
This half-term our topic work is history-based. We will be learning about Ancient Greek life with a specific focus on the impact and legacy of their lives on us today. Below is our knowledge organiser to support the learning and it is also available to download from the bottom of the page. If you can support your child to learn this key knowledge, that would be great. They will also have a copy of this knowledge organiser in their homework books.
Get in contact with us!
Should you need to contact us about your child and their learning, please use the year 5 email address email@example.com - please note that we will try to check these emails two or three times a week and respond when we are able to. If you need to contact school about a more urgent matter, please contact the office as usual.
The children will have PE on a Thursday afternoon. Please can children come to school wearing their school PE kit on a Thursday.
Each week, children will be given a list of spellings to learn plus a task to complete with these words. They will also be expected to use Spelling Shed to practise these words. In addition, there will be a weekly MyMaths task to complete online. Some weeks there will also be additional topic homework in order to enhance their learning in areas like art, history or geography.
Please support your child in completing homework and returning their homework book on time each week.
Homework will be set every Wednesday and should be completed and handed in by the following Tuesday.
Children should continue to use Times Tables Rock Stars regularly to keep their recall of times tables sharp. We will check their progress on this regularly and celebrate successes whenever we can.
We will be having focused handwriting sessions in school to aid the children in their learning of this key skill. Any support you can provide at home is much appreciated.
