Welcome to our Year 5 class page.

Below you will find  an overview of some exciting topics we will be covering next term and also some general information about our year group.


Summer term

In the Summer term we continue to develop our historical enquiry skills by learning about the Anglo Saxons. In science we will learn about Living things and their habitats and forces. In Come and See our three topics for this term will be Transformation, Freedom and Responsibility and Stewardship. In June we will study another faith which will be Islam. During our music lessons we will continue to learn to play the recorder and build up a repertoire of songs we can play. Our DT this term will focus on food technology and will link to our history unit on Anglo Saxons. In art, in our sculpture block, we will be studying both Liverpool Cathedrals and making work based on our visit.

P.E.

P.E. days will be a Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday is our outdoor slot and children should come in their outdoor P.E kit (plain, unbranded black joggers and sweatshirt, plus school team coloured T-shirt). Full details can be found on our website. Our indoor P.E session is on a Wednesday. After Easter Year 5 will be attending weekly swimming lessons on a Wednesday instead.

Outdoor Learning

Weather permitting, children will complete outdoor learning sessions on a Friday. Children should come to school on a Friday wearing clothing that is suitable for outdoor learning. Outdoor learning sessions will take place either at school or at the beach.

Homework

Children will bring home their spelling book and reading book on a Thursday. Children need to return their reading book on a Monday and their spelling book needs to come into school every Thursday so children can complete their test.
Children in year 5 are encouraged to read widely and often at home. To help support their reading children can access Reading Buddy.
To help children secure their multiplication facts they are encouraged to access Times Tables Rockstars regularly at home.

Additional Information

Please ensure that children have a water bottle in school each day. We encourage them to take their bottles home each afternoon so they can be washed.

In Key Stage 2, children are encouraged to bring a snack to school to eat at break time. Please ensure that this is a healthy snack such as fruit or vegetables.
 
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or queries.


Best wishes,
Miss Coyne, Miss Fitzsimons and Mrs Chai-Thompson
