Welcome to Year 5 class page!
We are a class of 33 witty, lively and unique children who will be taught by Miss Martin and Mrs Newton.
This page is here to show you the great and exciting work Year 5 have been getting up to!
Tuesday (10 am) and Friday (9.45 am)
Because the sessions are in the morning, the children are expected to come into school in their PE kit and to have their school uniforms in their bags to change into.
We have started doing gymnastics after half term and the children have already shown great skills and are enjoying it a lot!
Homework: A Maths toolkit, a spelling toolkit, as well as a reading book will be given every Friday. The toolkits are expected to be brought in the following Wednesday. Reading is an important part of your child's development! Books are expected to be handed in every week (before the Friday) so a new one can be given.
We would like to remind you that Mathletics and Spellodrome are also here for your children to get extra spelling and Maths practice at home.
What have we been learning?
This term our topic was forces.
Through a range of fun experiments and activities, the children have had the opportunity to investigate the effects of air resistance, water resistance, gravity and friction! Sharpening their scientific skills and vocabulary, they carried out experiments to see if there was a link between mass and weight, to check the effects of friction on different surfaces, to see if the size of a parachute would impact on their speed and to check if the shape of an object would have an impact on their speed in water!
In Literacy, they have enjoyed studying the fantastic book Street Child and have learned more about life in the Victorian times, through the eyes of an orphan.
Our topic for the term is 'Called to serve'. Creative and reflective activities will help them to understand that we are called to be disciples, and that there are different ways to serve and respond to God's call. Children have also had the opportunity to plan their own liturgy and actively participate in collective worship every week.
