Welcome to Year 5!
In Year 5 we are taught by Mr Tickle (Class 5) and Miss Wison (Class 6). We are also lucky to have dedicated support staff Mr. Anderson (HLTA) and Mrs Bridgeman (LSA) to help and support us with our learning in and out of class.
As part of the children's Creative Curriculum work, we will be learning about 'Rivers and the Water Cycle'. Through this the children will develop their knowledge and understanding of how rivers are formed looking at their source and end point. On our trip to Selbourne Study Centre, children will complete a river study exploring the differing speeds that different sections run at.
In Year 5 we believe homework to be of vital importance in preparing children for the for the transition to Year 6 and ultimately secondary school as well as to secure their learning from in class. Due to this, each week children will be set TWO pieces of English and TWO pieces of maths homework. Homework will be given out and due on the following days:
|Day homework set||Day homework is due|
|Maths homework||Monday||Following Friday|
|English homework||Wednesday||Following Tuesday|
Homework will be monitored regularly by the class teachers. Children who do not complete homework tasks will complete them in school in their own time. Where possible parents will be notified of this happening.
Homework Projects will be set for children to complete on a termly basis. The projects enable children to develop their knowledge and understanding through a self guided process. Class teachers will give a list of suggested activities which could be completed as part of the project. Children will be expected to complete their projects and bring them into school by the due date in order to present them to their peers.
For the Autumn Term our PE days will Tuesday morning with Premier Sports and Wednesday afternoon. PE kits should be in school every week from Monday to Friday and included weather appropriate clothing.
