~ Welcome to Year 5 ~
Your Teachers are Miss Barry (5B, Year Group Leader), Miss Hayes (5H) and Miss Underwood (5U). We are supported by Mrs Walsh (HLTA) and Mrs McGinley (TA).
Homework will be set every Monday and must be returned by Friday. This will consist of a Reading comprehension, a Maths activity and spellings to learn.
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.
Thank you for your continued support.

~ Our Weekly Learning Focus - 27.6.22 ~
This week in Year 5:
We will be linking English to our Geography topic this week, writing an explanation text on deforestation.
We will start our topic, Measurement. We will be converting between metres and kilometres, grams and kilograms, litres and milliletres, metric units and imperial units.
School Postcode: RM15 5RW
We continue our topic of Stewardship. We will be appreciating how we can care for people. We will also be preparing work based on the Holy Spirit for the visit of Bishop Alan next week.
We continue with our topic of Animals including Humans. Children will be exploring life expectancy and the issues behind it.
We continue with our topic of South America. Children will be learning about the human geography of South America. This links nicely to the children's homework, which is to pick a South American country and prepare a presentation on it.
Children will be exploring artwork by Beatriz Milhazes. They will be creating a collage using different shapes and different materials.
We will be continuing our RSE topic this week. Children will be looking at the physical changes both boys and girls go through during puberty.
5U's World Book Day Costumes
5U Go Green Day
For Go Green Day, we wore one item of green with our school uniform. We also brought in materials that we could reuse (e.g. plastic bottles, cardboard boxes, scrap paper) and made rocket ships with them. We have been learning about recycling, reusing and reducing in PSHE lessons, so it was excellent to put the reusing element of the 3Rs into practice today!
This week, in groups of 5, the children in 5U made posters about Henry the VIII's wives and presented their posters to the class.
Children were investigating different sources about King Henry VIII. They had to decide whether the source was primary or secondary and whether the source was reliable or not.
