Year 5 (2020-21)

Welcome to Year 5!

I’m really looking forward to an exciting year with lots of creative aspects and using technology in different ways to display all your amazing knowledge. The i-pads and the laptops get a thorough workout in Year 5!

I’ve got some great books to get our teeth into, covering all the different genres with adventure and intrigue, mystery, monsters and magic – something for everyone.

We’ll also be using our maths skills in all sorts of ways exploring reasoning and problem solving to really deepen our understanding of the maths curriculum.

See the curriculum map to see all our units but they include destructive volcanoes and earthquakes in Geography, the Anglo-Saxon development of England, Computer Aided Design, Creating statues and Augmented reality.

I expect to see everyone getting completely stuck in and showing how amazing they are.

It’s going to be a jam-packed year, I can’t wait!

Weekly Reminders

PE is Wednesday and Friday

Daily reading at home is expected. Use a range of authors, genres and text types. See the links below to help your child to find new books and different authors that they may be interested in. When a child’s reading spectrum has been broadened, this has a positive impact on their reading ability, vocabulary range and writing.

At the moment we are using bug club for the school reading scheme, reducing the risk of transmission from sharing books.

Homework will be posted on Microsoft Teams.

Weekly spelling and an English task.

Weekly Maths task based on the learning in class.

Regular tables practice – all times tables up to 12 x 12, using TT Rockstars to support the practice at least 3 times a week
