Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 ! During the year children have the opportunity to build on the foundations set in lower key stage two whilst increasing their knowledge in all areas of the curriculum. Children's independence and resilience is nurtured in order to grow to prepare them for year 6.

At the start of the autumn term children go on a two night residential to an outdoor pursuits centre where they have the opportunity to go caving, kayaking, canoeing, fly on an aerial zip wire and numerous other heart raising activities. It is a fantastic trip, it facilitates children's team building skills and allows them to grow in confidence in whilst staying away from home with their friends.

Children are encouraged to prepare themselves for lessons and be responsible for organising their things such as P.E. kits, homework, reading and spelling books. I encourage PE kits to be in school everyday and reading books / diaries and spelling log books should go home each night and returned to school each day.

Homework is given out on Wednesday and collected in on a Wednesday. Spare homework is available in the classroom. We try to alternate between English and Maths homework and include some other activities and projects across the year.

Reading for pleasure is something that we strongly enourage in Year 5 and across the whole school. We expect children to read to someone at least 3 times per week and reading diaries are signed.

New spellings are given out on a Monday and weekly spelling tests will be on a Monday. When children come in to school each morning they will complete early morning spellings and time table activities. It is important that they continue to practice their times tables so that they can be recalled rapidly along with corresponding division facts.

Our main topics are Ancient Greece and Britain's settlement by the Anglo Saxons, which provdes a variety of cross curricular activities. We learn about the Greeks influence on society today and have lots of opportunities for drama and art to recall facts. We cover properties and changes in materials leading on to forces and earth and space after Christmas. Children have the opportunity to visit the Space Centre and Offa's Dyke and local visit around Ludlow at the end of the summer term.

We have 'pom pom jar' in our classroom and children earn pom poms individually or as a group or whole class to add to the jar. Pom poms are given for a variety of different things, good work, and kindness towards others, being helpful within the class or exceptional behaviour. When the jar is full children choose an afternoons activity as a reward. We've had film afternoons, sports competitions on the field and art projects. We think it's important that children choose an activity together as a class and work together to take responsibility for their learning.

Please feel free to come and speak to us regarding any further questions you may have.

Many Thanks
