Miss Lamb, Miss Young and Mrs Anderton are pleased to welcome you to Year 5's wonderful web page!
Our classroom is a stimulating and happy environment with opportunities for all children to learn and grow. We respect and care for each other, encouraging everyone to be the best that they can be.
In Year 6 we strive to have high standards and expect all children to be wearing the correct uniform, complete all homework that is set and read at least three times a week, at home, to an adult.
Let's travel back 5000 years to the dusty realms of Ancient Egypt. Cruise along the Nile, entering a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings. Now open the doorway to Ancient Egypt...who knows what reassures you will find?
We will be finding out about the Nile's fertile riverbanks, discovering about Egyptian beliefs and rituals and learning about their fascinating culture. Our reading and writing will be tied closely to our topic to create a rich and powerful learning experience.
In our writing we will be looking at a variety of genres, centred around our Egyptian topic. We will be learning to write diaries, Egyptian adventure stories and non-chronological reports.
In maths we will be getting to grips with our new Power Maths resources, using them to expand our knowledge of number, calculation, fractions, shape, measures and data handling. As always, we will combing a variety of skills, strategies, problem solving and reasoning tasks to become the best Mathematicians we can be!
In Year 5, we ask that parents support their children in reading at least 3 times per week to ensure fluency and comprehension.
We also have spellings which are distributed on a Monday to be tested on Friday.
Children are encouraged to log onto Times Tables Rockstars several times per week to practice their times tables. We complete a check each Friday in the hope that children beat their times!
Learning Log tasks are given out on a fortnightly basis, on a Friday, to be returned in 2 weeks time.
In Year 5 we have PE on a Tuesday and Wednesday. We ask that PE kits are kept in school all week in case of plot twists! Your child can take their PE kit home each Friday to be washed and returned the following Monday.
