~ Welcome to Year 5 ~
Your Teachers are Miss East (5E, Year Group Leader), Mrs Ignatov/Miss McAnally (5I) and Miss Nixon (5N). We are supported by Mrs Cook (HLTA), Mrs Wiseman (LSA) and Miss Holland (TA).
Reading for at least 15 minutes each day, 5 times per week, will also be expected as part of your child's homework. It is important to support your child with daily reading as this has a huge impact on their understanding, imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. In Year 5, it is important to do a mixture of independent reading, reading with an adult and for your child to independently record their opinions about the book in their Reading Record.
Homework is set weekly and due in the following week. Homework will usually consist of Spellings and a piece of Maths homework. Occasionally, children may be asked to create a project to present in class.
Thank you for your continued support.
The Year 5 Team
Please be aware that Year 5 have P.E. on a Tuesday and children are expected to come to school wearing their PE kit on this day.
Autumn Parent Information Meeting
~ Our Weekly Learning Focus ~
Week Beginning 4.12.23
In Writing this week, we will be using our research from last week to write detailed non-chronological reports about how Christmas is celebrated in another country. We will also be applying all the work we have done on tenses to ensure that our non-chronological reports are written in a consistent tense.
In Reading this week, we will be continuing to read the book 'There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom' by Louis Sachar.
In Mathematics this week, we will be applying our knowledge of equivalent fractions to accurately add and subtract mixed numbers.
In Religious Education this week, we will be giving reasons why Christians show love and service during Advent. We will also be discussing how a light in the darkness brings hope. We will be reading the following Scripture: Jeremiah 33:14-16, Psalms 27:13-14, Isaiah 9:2-3 and John 1:5.
In Geography this week, we will be learning about Fair Trade and why it is so beneficial for communities around the world.
