Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!
 Our class teachers are Mrs Kennedy and Mrs Pimperton (Wednesday). Mrs Sainsbury is our Teaching Assistant and Mrs Edwards teaches us ICT.
Our topics this half-term are Crime and Punishment in history and and Life Cycles in science. Keep an eye on our Class News page to see examples of what we get up to and learn.
We have indoor PE on Thursday and outdoor PE on Friday but like everyone to have their PE kit in school all week. Earrings and watches must be removed for all PE lessons.
This half-term we are learning to play volleyball and striking and fielding games.
Pencil cases are allowed with HB pencils and blue pens (not biro) - a blue Frixion pen is beneficial but not required. All stationery is provided.
Water bottles are kept on tables so please use a bottle with a sports cap filled only with water.

Each week we have key areas to focus on for homework to help and support the work we do in school:
1) Times Tables Rock Stars helps us to learn and improve our multiplication knowledge and we should do this for at least 30 minutes over the week.
2) Reading our book aloud to an adult and discussing its content really helps us to understand the meaning and messages within them. Learning the definitions of new words and following a grammatically correct structure helps us to improve our writing skills as well. We should read at least 3 times per week for a minimum of 15 minutes each time to gain the best results.
3) Other homework is set weekly - it is set on a Tuesday and needs to be completed for the following Monday.
4) Spellings are set on a Wednesday and it is possible to practise the words at home through the Spelling Shed website.
