Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

 

September 2017:

Welcome back! We hope you've all had a very peaceful and relaxing summer and that your children are excited about coming back to school. The Year 5 team spent some time in July getting to know the children and outlining the expectations of the Year 5 curriculum. We are now really looking forward to getting started with our new class. 

 

As has become tradition, to kick start our geography topic, we will be visiting local woodland to meet a Forest Ranger. During our visit, children will work in teams to build their very own rainforest survival shelter- Bear Grylls style.This year we will be meeting with Forest Ranger, Richard Marshall on Friday 15 September 2017 at Blackleach Country Park.

 

For our visit, we require a signed permission slip (to be returned by Friday 08 September) to allow your child to attend and would be glad of a number adult helpers. Full details are on the letter that your child will receive on their first day back at school- a copy will also be available below (the 'Useful Documents' section) in the event of a letter being misplaced. On this day, children may come to school in their own clothes, suitable for the shelter building activity, but must bring their uniform and school shoes to change into upon returning to school. The Forest Ranger has been in touch today (Thursday 14 September) to advise children to wear wellies if they have them as the site is quite muddy currently. We look forward to welcoming our parent helpers who will be joining us and thank them kindly for their time. We will leave school promptly after registration and return to school in time for lunch.
 

From September, children will rehearse the recall of times tables facts, attempting to answer twelve questions within a minute. All children will start with the 2 times tables before progressing through the other times tables once they can successfully recall all twelve facts within a minute. This will help with the retention of number facts and help prepare children for the proposed introduction of a SATS-style times table test in 2019.

 

Please do keep watching the Year 5 Mathematics Teaching Videos for valuable homework help. The videos are valuable in modelling the processes that we teach in schools. You can access the videos by clicking the link below:

There are also a number of English Year 5 English Teaching Videos available now that will be valuable in helping children develop as confident, fluent writers:
