Welcome to Year Five – the penultimate year!
In Year 5 we continue to develop ourselves as all round ‘learning leaders’. By making learning fun we are able to further develop our confidence, perseverance and resilience. In doing so we not only learn better, but also set a good example to others.
Learning is not the only thing we develop! Our responsibilities now reach beyond the classroom. We have monitor groups responsible for; setting up assemblies, running the music/sound system and ‘break-time buddies’ (a ‘buddy’ system set up to support children in KS1 during breaktimes).
As a whole school we teach and learn through a ‘creative curriculum’, linking subjects through common themes. In doing so, in Year 5, we become immersed in our learning and are increasingly aware of the cross curricular links that exist between the different subjects.
In light of this, our weekly homework is as follows:
Spellings – set on Monday and tested on Friday.
Times tables practice and reading should be done on a daily basis.
We would like to take this opportunity to inform you that PE lessons are on Mondays and Wednesdays, although PE kit should always be in school as there may be other opportunities for sport during the week. PE often takes place outside (as much as the ever changing climate will allow), so appropriate outdoor kit is required.
If you have any questions or concerns during the year, please feel free to speak to me before or after school, or contact the office to make an appointment.
