Miss Lamb, Mrs Anderton, Mrs Corke and Mr Carey 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 5 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. Find out about life on the river’s fertile banks, discovering Egypt and its fascinating culture. Unravel the secrets of ancient tombs, using historical sources and ancient artefacts. Find out about powerful pharaohs and grandiose gods. Make yourself a nemes and you’ll really look the part. Become an apprentice and work for Ramose, the chief embalmer at the Beautiful House. Help him prepare a body for its journey into the afterlife. Now open the doorway to ancient Egypt. Who knows what treasures you will find?
In our writing we will be looking at a variety of genres, centred around our 'Pharaohs' topic. We will be learning to write Egyptian mystery stories, playscripts and recounts.
In maths we will be continuing to tackle our Power Maths resources, using them to expand our knowledge of number, calculation, fractions, shape, measures and data handling. As always, we will combining 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 Friday to be tested on the following Friday.
Children are asked to access Times Tables Rockstars at least twice a 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.
At the moment, we are asking families to NOT send full PE kits into school. Instead we are asking that children bring just PE shoes in their school bag. For PE children will change their shoes and sessions will be done in normal uniform.
