Welcome to Year 5
Our Autumn term’s theme - ‘Gallery Rebels’ – has a heavy art-focus throughout.
English themed activities over the term will include a painting critique, non-fiction writing, poetry and a short story narrative.
In D.T/Art, we will be creating artwork using a range of materials and in a variety of artistic styles. We will also be creating sculptures from wire.
Over the term, the children will participate in class reading sessions.
Weekly spelling sessions (Tuesday – Thursday) will continue.
Maths lessons will follow the revised Year 5 curriculum and include focused arithmetic sessions.
There is an expectation that children will read at home daily either with an adult or independently. Their diaries will be regularly checked by the class teacher. This will need to be briefly recorded i.e. date, title and pages read. Every 4 weeks a written diary task will be set- with a week for completion. At the end of each half-term each child will complete a book review at home.
Maths homework will be given out on Friday and needs to be handed in to be marked by Thursday morning at the latest.
Spelling homework will be given on a Tuesday. This is generally a list of words to be learnt for a test that will take place on Friday of the same week. Please ensure time is spent learning these words.
Further classroom Information
PE kits need to be in school all the time please. Our P.E days will usually be Thursdays; however, this may be subject to change.
We will, as always, work our hardest to ensure that the children have a happy, productive and successful Year 5.
Please don’t hesitate to speak with one of us at the end of the school day if you have any concerns or issues.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mr Dyer and Mrs Robertshaw
