Welcome to Year 5!
Lilac Class and Ash Class
Meet the staff...
Our topics for this year are:
- The Vikings
- Earth and Space
- The Rainforest
- Benin Dynasty
- The Victorians
Homework for Year 5 is currently as follows:
- Spelling practice using Spelling-shed.
- Times- tables practice using TT Rockstars.
- In addition to this, every half term the children will receive a homework activity sheet. From this, they can choose 5 activities which need to be completed by the last week of each half term.
The children will be tested on their times-tables and spellings every Wednesday.
You will have noticed that we have recently started to send home more Maths and English homework. This is not compulsory, but we do strongly advise children to have a go at as much as they can as it is aimed to consolidate their learning.
Thank you for your continued support.
Spelling and times-tables practice
We would like to thank all parents/ carers for their continued support with TT Rockstars and Spelling-shed. The children have been very enthusiastic and we have seen some great progress made already! Below are the links for both TT Rockstars and Spelling-shed.
Let's write a letter!
Whilst enjoying the warmth of the fading autumn sunshine, many pupils in Year 5 expressed a desire to improve our school conservation area. After much discussion (and enthusiasm!) both Lilac and Ash class decided to write letters to Mrs Thorpe detailing their fabulous ideas for how the area could be transformed. Some of these ideas included: a reading area; an outdoor classroom; a conservation corner for small insects; more seating areas and many more. We will keep you informed with what becomes of our suggestions!
