Year 5

Hello and welcome to our Year 5 webpage!  Our teachers are Miss Harvey (5H), Mrs Prest and Mr Walsh (5P) and Mr Davies (5D). We are also supported by Miss Day, Mrs Davis and Miss Hayward in 5H, and Mrs Al Disi 5D.

Autumn 2 2018

Our topic this half-term is "Ancient Secrets". We will be learning all about the Mayan Civilisation, and creating our own non-fiction texts to help teach others about the Maya. 

Thank you so much to all of the families who have already sent in home learning projects linked to this topic. They are fantastic! We would love to see any others that are being completed at home. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------Coming up soon:

  • Friday 9th November - Welly Boot Day
  • Friday 16th November - Children in Need (Choir on BBC - 8pm)


​​​​​​​Things to remember:

  • We have daily reading homework. Please record your reading at home in your homework diary. 
  • We have weekly spellings homework - this may be a list of words to learn, or a spelling rule to practise. 
  • Weekly Maths homework will come home on a Wednesday, and will be due in on the following Wednesday. 
  • We have outdoor PE on Tuesday / Wednesday.
  • Swimming lessons begin in the Spring term (after Christmas), and will run for 10 weeks. 

Times Tables Rockstars

The children are loving taking part in the Times Tables Rockstars challenge! Each child has been given a log-on for the website: They are able to practise their times tables while playing tournaments, and then in class they will be tested four times a week on their allocated times tables for that week. The aim of this incentive is to help children answer problems quickly. As they get quicker they will be given a different 'rock status'.
