School Target 2020/21 = 96%
Year 5 will receive their homework on a Friday and needs to be completed by Wednesday. Each week the children will have a maths, literacy and spellings activity. Reading is encouraged every night and can be written in their daily reading log.
Each day a secret student is chosen and has to model excellent behaviour, at the end of the day we ask each pupil in our class to say who they think it is?
We have introduced a new behaviour system called 'steps-to-success'. Children who show excellent behaviour can reach 'Sky is the limit', and children who maintain good behaviour end up in the 'Green for Growth' zone. A certificate will be sent out on a Friday to commend your child.
During Autumn Term 1, Year 5 will be studying the book 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' which will involve lots of descriptive writing and writing our own chapter. We will be studying The British Empire and using our mapping skills to locate these. The children will investigate sound in Science and how we are able to hear it through different materials. Our PE lessons are on Wednesday and Thursday and children are asked to come to school in their PE kits.
During Autumn Term 2, Year 5 will be studying the book ‘Hugo Cabret’, which will give children the opportunity to explore the early years of film and writing from a different character view point. For Geography the children will look at local maps, identifying new features and what have disappeared. In Science children will investigate animals and their environments. Year 5 will be swimming on Wednesday and doing outdoor Games on Thursday.
During Spring Term 1, Year 5 will be studying the book ‘Time Spinner’ and a number of science fiction stories. We will be investigating States of Matter in science and The Vikings in our history topic. Our PE lessons are now on Monday and Thursday, and children are asked to come to school in their full PE kits.
