We have had an amazing "SIZZLING STARTER" in Year 5 this week. The children received a text message from "Tim Peake" informing them of some strange goings on. He told us that we would be given secret missions over the next few weeks.
On Tuesday we received a "Top Secret" package.
The package told us to be aware of any unusual "Lost Things" that we didn't feel fitted into our environment. The children went out hunting for the "LOST THING".
We searched high and low until, there in the distance, we saw a strange thing!
The children were baffled with what it was? Where it had come from? What it wanted? Why it was here?
We asked it questions, but it responded in strange squeaks, but with good detective skills, we noticed a pattern of high pitch noises meant yes and low pitch meant no.
Here's a video to see the "LOST THING" in action.
The staff members in Year 5 are:
Mr. Foreman (5F Class Teacher)
Mrs. Hodgkins and Mrs. Cartwright (5HC Class Teacher)
Mrs. Capper (5F Teaching Assistant)
Mrs. Mathers (5HC Teaching Assitant)
Mrs.Taylor and Mrs.Farmiloe (1:1 support staff)
In Year 5, we aim to give your child the best education through fun, exciting and thought provoking activities that inspire children to become independent learners! We know how important your child's education is, and in Year 5 your children will be taking their next steps toward their final year of primary school. The standard of work and expectation in Upper Key Stage 2 is of a high level and therefore we aim to ensure that children are fully equipped with the knowledge needed to reach their full potential!
In Year 5, we operate an open door policy, and all staff members are happy to talk to parents and carers about any concerns or matters they may have. For safeguarding purposes, please enter the school via the office and you will be directed from here. Please appreciate that at times, it may not be possible, so if the matter is urgent please e-mail the school office and they will pass on any messages asap.
We hope you will enjoy visiting our page, and we also hope you find everything you are looking for!
Let us tell you a little bit about life in Year 5...
In Year 5, our day usually consists of English and Maths being taught in the morning, with a creative approach to our learning in the afternoon! From September, Year 5 are learning all about the Vicious Vikings! We have been investigating why they were so vicious and who was able to stop them!!
Our timetable is attached on this page, so feel free to take a look at what we get up to on a daily basis!
You will also find our class information leaflet which we sent out at the start of the school year with key information about year 5 expectations.
Rules and expectations.
In Year 5, we need to take responsibility for bringing in our own equipment for lessons so that we are ready and able to learn from the very start of each lesson!
Children are asked to bring in their book bags and water bottles to school with them every day. Children do not need to bring in pencil cases as all stationery equipment is provided within lessons.
Homework will consists of spellings and maths facts. These will go out every Monday for a test the following Monday. Please check in your child's bags weekly for these. Children will also need their homework files in class every Monday. Home-School Links books are checked and signed by Friday. We ask that children aim for 3 signatures per week: there will be class rewards for this!
In Year 5, we take responsibility very seriously, and we are always striving to follow our school golden rules:
We work hard
We are gentle
We are kind
We are helpful
We are honest
Throughout the year, we will be adding lots of important information to our class page so that you can be kept up to date with any events such as: class plays, class trips and parents evenings.
Here are some new weblinks to try at home!
