The two classes are 5 Juniper and 5 Maple. Miss Routledge is the class teacher for 5 Juniper, with Miss Humphreys supporting. Miss Daniels is the class teacher for 5 Maple with Mrs Hepworth supporting.
We are looking forward to a year of high achievements in all aspects of the curriculum.
Please explore the aims of Year 5 below;
The Aspire reward system continues this year. We hope to be able to give out lots of eligibility slips at the end of each week because the children have attended school each day, been on time that week, worn the correct school uniform/correct P.E kit, had P.E. kit and swimming kit at the right times and demonstrated good behaviour in school and on the playground. If children receive awards for activities outside of school, we would also like to hear about these.
We are also focusing on being punctual, with prizes for classes with the least amount of lates per half-term.
Our timetable for this half term includes swimming on a Friday afternoon and Outdoor P.E. on a Monday afternoon. Please ensure children have the correct kit for each day.
Our main focus in Year 5 is on improving English and Maths skills. Maths will focus on the three aims from the New National Curriculum; Reasoning, Fluency and Problem Solving. In English we will be focusing on Reading and covering a wide range of text types. This half-term our focus in English will be Greek myths and legends.
The topic for this half term is Ancient Greece which will include a Greek Day, Greek Olympics and designing, making and tasting Greek food. In Science we will be studying and carrying out investigations involving materials and in PHSCE we will be looking at Relationships and Changes.
In Year 5 children will receive Maths and English homework weekly, as well as spellings and reading books. Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday.
It is a school expectation that this homework is completed on time each week. If homework is not completed then children will have to complete their homework during playtimes and lunchtimes.
