Year 5 2016 - 2017

Miss Blake

Welcome back to our final term in Year Five,

We hope that you have all had a peaceful break and that you are well rested and ready to work hard in your final term of Year Five. We have another jam-packed term ahead of us, focusing on our topic ‘The Journey’ and preparing for our school production.

Over this term we still need to focus on learning our times tables at home; you should be learning them in and out of order and looking at applying them to division. As our main focus in class, we will be concentrating on spellings, ensuring that we can confidently use dictionaries to support us with tricky words as well as recapping and ensuring we can spell the Year 3 and 4 and the 5 and 6 word list.


PE will be on a Monday and a Tuesday afternoon. I will be teaching Athletics  on a Monday afternoon and a sepcialist PE coach will be teaching Gymnastics on a Tuesday. You need to have a labelled PE kit in school at all times, which can be taken home to be washed over the weekend or half termly. 


Homework, Spellings and Reading

Learning Log homework and Maths will be given out on a Friday and returned on a Wednesday. Occasionally, we may give out a piece of homework that lasts for a longer period of time, such as a mini-project. Reading books need to be changed at least once a week and don’t forget to bring your Reading Journal and book in everyday, so that we can keep track of the books you are reading. You need to continue to learn your times tables at home as well as covering them in class. Finally, Spellings will be given out on a Thursday and tested the following Thursday. 


We are extremely lucky to have the Wider Opportunities team in this year to teach Music! You will be given the opportunity to choose an instrument of your choice and from there will learn how to play and look after the instrument. You need to ensure that you are taking your musical instrument home and bringing it back in on a Monday to make sure you are ready for our school performance in the Summer Term. 


Mr Eisenberg will continue to support us Monday to Thursday as our Troop to Teacher . He will be learning about teaching, working with small groups within the class and will begin to take whole class lessons.

Mrs Edwards will teach you on a Tuesday afternoon, while I plan lots of exciting lessons!

Miss Brand will also be joining our class until 23rd June on her final teaching placment. 

Finally, the fantastic Miss Evans will also work as our Teaching Assistant during the morning sessions.
