Year 5 is taught by Miss Pennance with learning support being provided by Mrs Samms and Miss Dean
For the New Year, and new term, we are starting a new topic all about the Victorians. We will be traveling back in time to the Victorian era, to join a group of unusual people. . . The Peculiars. This story is written by Kieran Larwood. It the first time we have used this book as a focus for a topic and we are using it because when I read it, I was captivated and just knew I had to share it with you. Please feel free to buy the book and bring it into school to read along with us, however, please don't read ahead as a lot of our work will be linked to important parts and if you read ahead you may ruin the surprise!
As always, all our work will be linked to quotes from the story. Please read the Holistic Plan to find out about all the exciting things we will be doing during the Spring Term. Click here for the Holistic Plan.
To help you be organised for the week, you need to know that your P.E. lessons will be taking place on a Tuesday afternoon (1:15pm -- 3:15pm). Please ensure all PE kits are in school and clearly labelled.
Homework will be set and discussed every Friday.
A weekly list will be sent home containing 5 words (linked to the spelling pattern of the week) to promote deeper learning. You will be expected to write them out in handwriting book to also promote joined up handwriting.
You will also receive a list of statutory spellings to learn each half term.
Weekly SPaG homework will be set from the CPG books
Weekly homework will be set on SPaG.com to accompany learning in class as well.
Weekly MyMaths homework will also be set every Friday and will recap the week's learning, with at least one task to be completed.
Weekly Time Table Rock Stars
Even though you are in Year 5, it is still vital to keep reading. Please record all reading in your reading diaries every week. I would like to see at least three entries.
Spellings, SPaG, times table testing and reading diary checks take place every Friday morning, so please ensure you bring in all your relevant books each Friday.
