Year 5

 

Dear Children and Parents,

I am delighted to be the class teacher in Year 5 and to be teaching within upper Key Stage 2 again.
As a member of Year 5 there will be much expected from you, with many exciting opportunities coming your way.
You will assist younger children, modelling suitable behaviour and  attitudes to learning, as well as continuing to develop your own knowledge, understanding and skills.

In Year 5 you will have the opportunity to experience the following activities and topics:

  • An historical look at slavery through the ages (eg Ancient Civilizations, Victorians and the present day)
  • A scientific study of Materials, Space, Forces, Plants and Habitats
  • A geographical study of South America, Russia and Cumbria
  • Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream
  • A study of famous people linked to Maths, Science, English, Design and Architecture

 

Homework
Homework in Year 5 consists of weekly spellings, maths and mental maths or grammar activities. These are given out on a FRIDAY, to be returned on a THURSDAY.
Children will be tested every Friday. In addition to this, children will also be given a series of Talk Cards each half term. Children will have the opportunity to share what they’ve learnt in class.
