Welcome to Year 5
We have two classes - Amethyst and Ametrine
Our Teachers are Miss Hazeltine and Mr Howell
Our Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Fry and Mrs Westwood
In Year 5, learning is an adventure where children will have the opportunities to explore further and learn through hands on experiences. The children will develop positive attitudes towards their learning and show a thirst for all things new. Year 5 is an exciting journey, helping all to fully embrace the challenges that lie in front of them. The skills the children learn are aimed to prepare them for the future.
Our main aims in Year 5 are:
- To increase children’s independence and growth mindset
- To help children to have accountability for their learning
- To value each other and show respect to everyone
- We are a team who celebrate success and achievement, we are inclusive, diverse and have a small amount of humour
- To endeavour to make each learning experience one to remember, where learning is an adventure
Our three main topics that the children learn about over the year are: ‘The Race to Space,’ ‘Keep Calm and Carry on’ and ‘Mountains and Rivers’. History and Geography skills are developed through these topics.
The children in Year 5 are learning how to be independent learners. As the year progresses the children are expected to take on more responsibility within the school community. Year 5 are very fortunate that they participate in a number of extra-curricular activities including; cultural days, art days and trips associated with current topics.
We hope that all Year 5 children will enjoy the year, always striving to be the best they can be so that they are ready for their transition to year 6 and the added responsibilities which come with this.
PE lessons will take place on Monday and Wednesday, so please make sure that your child has a named PE kit in school on these days. Please ensure that your child has warm clothing to wear for their outdoor session in the winter.
If you have any questions throughout the year, then please do not hesitate to ask!
Every Friday, the children will receive a Maths/ English homework that will need to be returned by the following Wednesday. Buzz time will still continue as normal on Friday mornings, so keep practising! We may also set some topic projects to complete throughout the term.
Spellings will be handed out every Friday and collected on a Friday. Please continue to learn the Year 5 spellings, which you will be tested on termly to see how you get on. See Learning Resources link below for a a copy of the Year 3/4 words and Year 5/6 words.
