Hi all and welcome back to Year 5! smiley


We are settling in really well to Year 5 after what has been a challenging year. To help support us in our return to school, our first topic is ‘Changes Around Us’. We will be doing lots of PSHE lessons on the changes around school as well as how we cope with the changes around us. We will incorporate some science into our topic where we will look at ‘Changes in Materials’ and we will also be looking at ‘Changing Faces’ during our art lessons where we will look at famous artists and their self portraits. 


We will be continuing with our Language and Literacy scheme starting with the story ‘Runaways’. We will do this every morning along with some grammar and spelling activities. We will also be continuing with our Maths No Problem lessons with some extra sessions of an afternoon. 


PE will be on a Monday and Tuesday and children can come into school in their PE kits on these days. 


Homework will be set every other Friday on Google Classroom, children can earn homework points for the amount that they do, which can be traded in for treats along with our behaviour points at our half termly treat afternoon! In the past we have had chocolate fountains, raffles, and even pizza making! Children can request a paper copy of their homework if they wish and can also complete their homework with help of an adult during lunchtime club. 


In Year 5, we use lots of websites to help to support our learning including:


Times Tables Rockstars






Children have all received a letter with their passwords on and can access these sites at home if they wish to. We also use Accelerated Reader to complete quizzes on the books we have read and children can take quizzes on the books that they are reading at home as well. 


Lots of information about our school day and went well is sent out on Marvellous Me, so make sure you have the app downloaded to keep in touch with us during the day!
