Year 5

Welcome to class 5’s page!

Our project for the Spring term is ‘How have disasters shaped North and South America?’ focusing on natural disasters such as earthquakes and volcanoes, problems America has faced and still face today, Native Americans and South America and its rainforests. We will be hooked into our project by making Native American dream catchers and headdresses and volcano models; learning more about the countries, states, landmarks and areas of North and South America; finding out more about what causes natural disasters and experiencing emergency procedures for earthquakes and much more!

We would love to see more reading in Class 5. Your child will get a prize for reading at home – a bronze prize for reading 75 times at home, a silver prize for reading 150 times at home and a gold prize for reading 250 times at home. Please listen your child read between 3 and 5 times a week and record every time you read with them in their reading diaries so we can keep a record. Please bring your books into school by Thursday, so they can be safely returned. Your child will receive a new book each Monday.

Your child will be given a spelling test and a times table test every Friday morning, so they need to be practising these throughout the week. Children receive house points for full marks in spellings and passing their times table test on TTRS.

Your child is given homework to complete every Friday and this will need to be returned in school the following Thursday. They also have 6 pieces of project homework to complete. We love to see these as they are always amazing – they go straight up on our project homework display in the cloakroom for everybody to see. You have until the end of term to complete all six.

PE lessons are every Wednesday this half term, so please make sure your child is wearing their PE kit to school every Wednesday.

Please note we will not be swimming this half term.

If you need to know anything else or need to speak with a member of staff, please come and see us.

Thank you,

Miss Wheeler and Mr Kingham.
