Welcome to Year 5!

In Year 5 we work together with Miss Newton, Mrs Sheikh, Mrs Lawson, Mr Fleet, Miss Barlow and Mrs Cunningham.

Changing Materials

In our Science lessons we been investigating the changes that can happen in different solids, liquids and gases.

We made our own water cycles in bottles to see the processes of evaporation and condensation and had a competition to see who could be the fastest to dissolve a lolly.

Active Maths

We have been working on our understanding of place value to millions by completing a treasure hunt. According to Daniel, this is ‘the best game ever!’

Year 5 Long-Term Plan 2019/20

Below is our long-term plan for this. It gives an overview of all the different learning that will take place over this year.

After success with this resource last year, we have signed up to the Reading Plus online resource. Your child will have opportunities in school to access the website but will also be able to use the site at home. The programme is focused upon increasing reading speed and fluency as well as securing understanding of a wide variety of texts. If your child has any problems accessing the website from home, please speak to a member of the Year 5 team.

 

 

Homework

Each week, children will be expected to complete a variety of homework tasks to support their in class learning. Tasks include:

Spelling - Spelling list to complete and extra spelling activities to earn Spellvis points

Maths - Arithmetic test and activities from either the Maths Family Toolkit or Maths With Parents.

Homework will be given out on Fridays and we expect it to be returned on or before Wednesday of the following week. 

Children will also be expected to read each week and return their book bag on their designated day, signed by an adult. All books books read (chapters in longer texts) will count towards the reading challenge.

If you have any problems accessing the maths homework online or your child finds any of the homework tasks too tricky, please come and speak to a member of the Year 5 team.

Spellvis Challenge!

Every week, children need to complete a minimum of 100 points  in their spelling journal. Awards will be given to children as they meet the different milestones. There will also be an award for Speller of the Week - the child who puts the most effort into their spelling journal homework.
