Year 5

Welcome to class 5’s page!

Our project for the Summer term is ‘Where would we be without the Greeks?’ focusing on Ancient Greece, what the Greeks were famous for, comparing Ancient Greece to modern Greece and looking at how the Greeks influenced our modern society. We will be hooked into our project by making Greek sculptures and authentic Greek pots, using the classic orange and black designs and frieze borders, designing our own Greek-style gods and goddesses, making Greek jewellery and even taking part in some Olympic games!

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 be swimming this half term! So please make sure your child has their correct swimming kit with them every Friday.

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.
