Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5. We are excited about the year ahead as we will be learning about our new topics starting this half term with tropical rainforests and space. We shall also be consolidating our learning in Maths and English to make sure we are confident in our learning before we move forwards with a challenging and exciting Year 5 curriculum.  Most of our English work this year will be drawn from quality literature and we will be reading some excellent new books starting with ‘The day I was erased’ by Lisa Thompson.  Later this year, we are looking forward to going for swimming lessons at Royton baths but this half term we will be learning about games such as netball, basketball and hockey. Mrs Phillips, our class teacher this year, will be setting homework each week on Google classroom. Homework will be as follows:

Doodle Maths 5-10 minutes every day with a minimum of 3 times a week

Spelling shed – New spelling lists will be also be available on Google classroom or as paper copies and will be given out on Fridays and tested the following Thursday.

Bug Club – Children are expected to read either their reading book or bug club for 5-10 minutes every day with a minimum of 3 times a week.

In year 5 we will all have high expectations of ourselves and we will always try our very best in everything that we do. The most important thing is that we all enjoy our learning and work together to make Year 5 a happy and enjoyable year for all.
