Welcome to Year 5's page.
Time for Sport
For the remainder of the term Year 5 will be receiving lessons once a week on exercise and healthy life styles. These lessons are each Thursday morning and will be a mixture of theory and practical work. To this end could you please ensure children have their PE kit in school on Thursdays as well as Wednesdays.
Thankyou to all who have joined us on ClassDojo, it's good to see you involved. Makes a real difference in class with the children looking to impress!! For those of you who are yet to take the plunge information on ClassDojo is available from their website here. If you have lost your code send a message in with your child or drop me a message on the homework email and I'll reply with your code.
The home work email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Good to see that many of our parents are now accessing Seesaw. The children are very enthusiastic about producing work that is of the necessary standard to be shown off!! Children can post whenever they want and I'm encouraging them to do so. I am exploring methods of getting more work on Seesaw and hopefully as the system becomes part of our normal routine you will see more and more work appearing.
I have now reissued all the class's Mathletics logins so all children should be able to access their account. Each child now has their login information stuck into the back cover of their reading diary.
I will be using Mathletics as homework on weeks we do not issue written work moving forwards. If for any reason your child cannot access the system at home don't worry as I do make time available to them in the morning to access Mathletics if that is the case.
Our maths homework this week is all on Mathletics. Everyone has work assigned to them. Due for completion by Thursday when I will be issuing some more. If your child is unable to access Mathletics at home please make sure they tell me as I am making time available in school for anyone this might apply to.
Before the season of goodwill takes over all our lives I thought we'd cover something a bit more spooky in English so we are looking at ghosts and cemeteries this week. One cemetery in particular; Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. For this week's homework I would like the children to research Père Lachaise Cemetery and in particular those who are buried there. I would then like them to pick who's ghost they would think it most interesting to meet and tell me why.
As always if you have any questions please grab me after school or else contact the office and we can arrange a meeting.
Our spellings for this week are;
Y5 P.E. is on Wednesday afternoon; all children will need a full P.E kit consisting of shorts, T-shirt and a pair of black pumps which adhere to the school uniform policy. Earrings cannot be worn during the P.E. session therefore it is greatly appreciated if parents take earrings out before school, this will also ensure that jewellery is not lost
Children need to read at least 20 minutes every night. Children can read independently, to an adult, or to a sibling. Please ensure reading diaries are signed daily.
Maths and English homework will be given out on Thursdays; maths will be given out every 2 weeks. Children also need to be practising times tables daily at home.
Children will be given spellings every Monday for a spelling test on Friday. We work on our spellings every day in school but practice at home makes perfect!!!
