Welcome to Year 5
We are so pleased to welcome you to our Year 5 team! This year we will have lots of fun and learn plenty along the way! You can look forward to lots of PE, art and topics such as Antarctica, Earth and Space and The Vikings (please take a look at the curriculum map linked below)! If you need anything at all, please don’t hesitate to ask any of the adults in our year group: Mr Broderick, Miss Killick, Mrs Sermon, Miss Farthing, Miss Cooper, Mrs A or Mrs Downes!
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday – please ensure children have kit for all weather eventualities!
Spelling tests will be on Mondays and Times Tables will be tested on Fridays. New spelling lists are sent home each Monday.
TT Rockstars and Seesaw
TT Rockstars is an excellent resource for all of our children to practise their multiplication fluency! All children in Year 5 should have quick recall of facts up to 12 x 12.
Seesaw is our online learning platform and is where we will put any information that we need to share. Please sign up to view your child’s journal as you will get a great insight into what they are up to at school and we can reward them for their home reading and any other home learning tasks!
If your child needs to learn from home, we have linked the following resources from Oak National Academy (and others), as closely as possible to the teaching that is being delivered in our classes. Please follow the links below, to watch lesson videos and access activities. Please upload evidence of your child’s learning to Seesaw – teachers will check and respond to tasks weekly and would love to see what you are getting up to!
