Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!
 
 Our class teacher is Miss Williams and Mrs Shepherd and Mrs Hickin are our Teaching Assistants. Mrs Edwards teaches us ICT and Mrs Platts looks after us at lunchtime. 
 
Our topic this half-term is 'Alchemy Island' and we will be learning lots of fascinating facts about materials, forces and chemical reactions. Keep an eye on our Class News page to see examples of our great work.
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 hockey and volleyball. Both are great fun to play and need good teamwork, hand-eye co-ordination and fast reaction times. Check out our class page to see photos of us in action!

Each week we have some spellings and a maths challenge for homework. These are given out on Monday and need to be completed and handed in on or before Friday. Our new Times Tables Rock Stars are also a fun homework task.
 
It's also really important that we read to an adult 5 times a week and discuss our book with them to help improve our vocabulary and comprehension skills. We get dojo rewards for completing our tasks accurately and neatly to show we are proud learners.
