Welcome to Year 5's page.
A few of the class have mentioned this week that they have not been able to show you their web site. Please accept my apologies as I thought I'd sent the link out.
Click here and you'll be able to see all their hard work!!!
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 spellings for this week are;
We are starting work on fractions this week. All Year 5 pupils have work assigned to them on Mathletics currently so they have work to be getting on with.
I am going to be sending each pair's notes to date home with them tomorrow. Their homework for this week is to read through what they have already done and highlight what they definitely want to include on their web page. This will form the basis of what they publish next week when we rewrite the information they have collected and finalise everyone's page. What they decide on will also form the basis of their next topic work as they look for images and videos to add to their page.
All the children now have their subjects for research. They all need to research them thoroughly in order that they can build their web page full of good quality content.
As always if you have any questions please grab me after school or else contact the office and we can arrange a meeting.

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!!!
The full list of UKS2 spellings is available for download below.
