Welcome to Year 5’s class page.
We follow in the footsteps of Jesus to Love, Learn and Grow.
Welcome to the 2018/19 academic year everyone.
We'll be making a lot of use of internet based homework this year.
Maths homework will be on MyMaths.co.uk. All children have login details and the site shows when homework assignments are due. English homework will be based on The 100 Word Challenge (on the class blog) and on reading comprehension exercises on Common Lit. The children will be taught how to access and use these sites during the first weeks of term.
We will be taking part in the Global Read Aloud during October/November. During this project we will be sharing work and ideas with children in other countries through the class blog and through Skype calls.
P.E. will take place on Mondays and Thurdsays, please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit and that ear-rings can be removed. We will make a point of trying to get outside for P.E., particularly on Thursdays, as we prepare to select a lacrosse squad so please ensure that your child has appropriate outdoor kit e.g. trainers, a long-sleeved top/sweat shirt etc., as well as the school PE kit.
All the children will be learning to play the harmonica as part of the Music curriculum. We are currently looking into providing harmonicas at a discounted price. I will update you about that when we have our meet the teacher evening.
To aid our communication with you this year, we will be using Seesaw. Seesaw is a student-driven digital portfolio that empowers students to independently document what they are learning at school with parents being able gain instant access to their child’s work. Again, I will give more information about this during the meet the teacher evening.
