Year 5 2023 - 2024
Welcome back to year 5 everyone! We hope you have had a lovely summer and feel fresh and revitalised. We are really looking forward to our learning this term.
Our topic for the Autumn term is going to be North America. You will find all the information about what we will be learning on our topic web in the files attached below.
We also have a fantastic trip booked to Xplore Science and Discovery Centre in Wrexham booked linked to our Science topic on ‘Forces’ for the start of October.
Our PE day will be Wednesday and so the children will need to come into school in their PE kit (Black shorts and a white plain t shirt). For the first half term this will be dance and so shorts will be best however after this we are likely to be outside so black or blue tracksuit trousers or leggings may be warmer. School jumpers may be worn for warmth.
On Monday year 5 will be having Forest School lessons and music. They will need to come to school in their old clothes and dress suitable for all weathers as they always go out whatever the weather. Please put names in all clothing worn in school especially jumpers and coats and wellies. If they choose to take their musical instrument home then they will need to always remember to bring it in for a their Monday music lesson.
Please always bring a water bottle into school everyday as there are no working water fountains in school.
Homework - always due in on a Monday.
Maths homework will be sometimes be set on the computer - My maths. The children will be given a log in and there will be links to lessons and tasks and sometimes other useful websites e.g. Prodigy. (Log ins will be written or stuck into reading record books). Sometimes they will bring home a worksheet to complete.
In year five we recommend reading daily or at least 4 times a week out loud to an adult discussing the unknown vocabulary or helping with tricky words. Please use Reading Record books to record what is read and to write down any new vocabulary or magpie phrases useful for writing. Reading record books will be collected in on Mondays. Please encourage your child to change their reading book regularly.
Spelling or grammar homework will be sent out on Thursdays and needs to be handed in on a Monday.
