Welcome back to your second term as Year 5.

We hope that you have all had a wonderful Christmas break and that you are well rested and ready for the lasnext twelve weeks of the Spring term in  Year 5. We have another jam-packed term ahead of us: from Vikings to space exploration, Thor to Chris Hadfield and full stops to parenthesis!  This term Mrs Higginson will continue to teach Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays with Mrs Evans finishing the week off on a Thursday and Friday. Mrs Baldwin and Miss Evans will continue to take you swimming on a Wednesday afternoon for the next half term and to deliver your music/French/P4C on a Friday afternoon. Miss Webb will be completing her 2nd term with us on her PGCE placement taking more responsibility for class teaching as the term progresses. We are also very lucky to receive continued support from Mrs Weekes and Miss Jones throughout the week and have our PE delivered by our specialist coach Danielle.


Afternoon Sessions:

PE lessons will be taught on a Monday afternoon by our sports coach with the support of Mrs Higginson- so don’t forget those PE kits. Over the first two terms of the year, you will also go swimming on a Wednesday afternoon to the Ellesmere Port Sports Village, where you will be supported by both Mrs Baldwin and Miss Evans. You will also continue to have the chance to participate in competitions. 

Mrs Baldwin will teach you on a Wednesday afternoon and also for an hour on a Friday afternoon - when she will initially cover subjects such as swimming, music, French and P4C (Philosophy 4 Children).


Homework, Spellings and Reading

There will be two pieces of homework a week. Our Numeracy and Learning Log homework will be given out on a Friday and will be due in on a Wednesday. Occasionally, we may give out a piece of homework that lasts for a longer period, such as a mini-project. Spelling lists will also be sent home at the beginning of a half term and are to be practised each week. It is important that you take the time to learn the spellings as it will impact on your English work. As always, reading is the cornerstone of all learning, so we recommend that you read at home as much as possible and aim to change your book regularly. In addition to this, you will also have access to Times Tables Rockstars, which you can continue to use on a weekly basis.


So, let’s get ready for a fantastic year ahead!
