Year 5 2022 - 2023
PE days are changing for the next half term
PE days for Year 5 are:
5HER - Monday
5LER – Friday
We would appreciate it greatly if your child can come to school in their PE kit- they will not need to bring their uniform to change into. We have spoken to the children about what constitutes their PE kit; however, just as a reminder it is black/ navy shorts, a plain white t-shirt and trainers. They will be going outside to do orienteering, so will need warm clothes for PE.
On days where your child is at Forest school, they will need to come to school in suitable clothing that you do not mind if they get dirty. These will need to include a waterproof coat, long sleeved top, long trousers and sensible shoes (no open toes).
We would really appreciate it if you could support your child with reading. In Year 5, this could include you sharing the reading with your child and/or having discussions about what they are reading. Although we will remind them of the need to regularly change their book once completed, they also need to work on becoming increasingly independent and reminding themselves. Reading for pleasure and enjoyment is something that we will continue to encourage; any reading completed can be written in their reading record book. We would like them to read at least 4 times throughout the week; their reading record books will be collected in on a Friday to celebrate all that has happened throughout the week.
Each week, your child will have a spelling session, they will then have a piece of homework set on a Wednesday to be completed by the following Wednesday. This can be found by logging on to 'spellingframe'. (On a Wednesday, the system will have both the previous week's work and the current week's work displayed. Please check the date on the homework task to ensure children are completing the correct task - it will display the date that it is due in).
Maths homework will be using the online programme ‘My Maths’; this will be set on a Friday to be completed by the following Friday.
At the beginning and end of the school day, there will always be a member of the Year 5 team on the door; please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns. Alternatively, you could contact us via the home-learning email addresses shown below.

Layers of the Earth.
In Geography, we have started our 'Disaster Strikes' topic by looking at the Earth. We have identified the four layers of the Earth- the Crust, the Mantle, the Outer Core and the Inner Core. We used 'Play Doh' to create the Earth. Although we didn't cut into the Earth whilst in school, some of the Year 5 children did a 'Big Reveal' at home. Have a look.
What do you think? How does it compare to yours?
We had a great week of workshops which culminated in a trip to Chester Zoo.
We loved making slime on our treat day.
We've started to learn to play the Boomwhackers - can you guess the tune?
In our second lesson, we moved on from Boomwhackers, to hand bells.
