Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!
 Our class teacher is Miss Williams and Mrs Shepherd is our Teaching Assistant. Mrs Edwards teaches us ICT and Mrs Hooton and Mrs Hickin come in and help us with our key skills too. Mrs Barker looks after us at lunchtime. 
Our topic this half-term is 'Stargazers' and, funnily enough, it's all about space and the planets. It's a real chance to learn lots of fascinating science facts and we'll even be trying to send rockets to the moon! Keep an eye on our Class News page to see examples of what we get up to and learn.
We have PE on Mondays and Fridays but like everyone to have both their indoor and outdoor PE kits in school all week. Earrings and watches must be removed for all PE lessons.
This half-term we are learning to play basketball and Ultimate Frisbee. We are also beginning to develop our indoor athletics skills. All are great fun and require a good level of fitness, strength, hand-eye co-ordination and team work. Check out our class page to see photos of us in action!

Each week we have two 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 5 times per week for a minimum of 15 minutes each time to gain the best results.
We get dojo rewards for completing our tasks on time to show we are proud and enthusiastic learners.
