Welcome to Year 5
In Year 5, we embrace the school values - REACH.
We strive to be the best we can be, enjoy making the most of a variety of learning opportunities and have fun during our time together at school.
"I have come that they may have life and have it to the full!" John 10:10
We support each other to grow, and reach our potential.
In Year 5, we are supported by:
- Mrs Territt - Class Teacher
- Mrs Purcell - Teaching Assistant
On our class page you will find useful documents (see folder) relating to:
- our timetable
- useful resources including recommended reading lists and links to websites to support learning in school, and
- home learning
- relevant notices for upcoming Year 5 events.
As always, if you have any questions at any time, please do not hesitate to speak to us.
This term, our topic will be studying the Victorians. I would encourage a visit to your local library to borrow and read some books to learn even more about what life was like during this incredible period of history. See the knowledge organiser for key areas of study that will be undertaken during this topic.
In Science we will be studying the fascinating topic of Earth and Space.
During our Maths lessons, we will advance our understanding of Place value, properties of number and develop more formal calculation methods for all four operations. Please see the helpful links file for activities and games that will support these areas of learning.
It is particularly important the children in Year 5 are confident in their times tables knowledge, as speed and accuracy in recalling these has a great impact on their ability to access the Year 5 maths objectives that involve more complex calculations.
In Computing we will continue to build our understanding of what it means to be a safe and responsible digital citizen.
We will be trying our best in all aspects of school life in order to earn marbles to fill the jar for our class reward.
Our PE days this term will be on Monday and Friday - children should come into school in their PE kit on those days.
- Learning, and then practising applying times tables (Mathshed)
- Regular reading (both independently and with an adult) - see reading tips file for useful questions to prompt discussion and develop comprehension skills.
- Spellings with an associated task will be set weekly on a Monday on Seesaw. These should be practised throughout the week, and will be tested in class the following Monday.
The home learning grid for this term will be uploaded to the folder in the coming weeks.
