Year 5 Class Page!
Welcome to the Year 5 class page for the Summer Term. Our last term before joining Year 6! Take a look below at some of the interesting subjects and topics we'll be studying this term.
Later on this term we will be starting our new topic of Living things and their habitats. Something we have studied most years. Some of the information we will be covering can be identified in the knowledge organiser below.
For our last Geography unit of the year we are studying Mountains. An extremely interesting topic which allows us to study different countries around the world. Within this topic we'll pay close attention to how Mountains were formed, the key features of a mountain and some of the more famous mountains in both Britain and the World. Look at the knowledge organiser below for more information and coverage.
So far this year we have read two class novels - Holes By Louis Sachar and Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We have thoroughly enjoyed reading these and are now making our way through The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.
Our read-a-thon has started again and as we're year 5's, the Gold Star mark has been moved! Now, we have to make it to 50 home-reads to achieve the Gold Star.
Indoor - Thursday
Outdoor - Friday
Students will be coming home in P.E kits on Friday, these need to return on the following Monday.
After and excellent effort from the students to start fractions mid-lockdown, they have made super progress and are now onto decimals. Once finished, we will move onto the two Year 5 Geometry topics we'll study this year. These include properties of shape and position and direction.
In Class 5 we are Super Spellers!
We learn new spelling rules every week. During Y5, we will be learning how to spell
Click here for this term's spelling menu.
We should also be able to spell THESE words from the Year 3 and 4 exception word list.
Once we have mastered this list of spellings, we learn THESE Year 5 and 6 spelling words. Practice at home!
We can also practice spelling rules on SUMDOG.
This year we are increasing our use of Seesaw both in and out the classroom. Some of our homework will be set on Seesaw as well as next steps in lessons. In the event of a second lockdown, the majority of our class work will be available on Seesaw.
To ensure we're making the best possible progress, we have decided to bring back the homework books. This year students will have two books, a mathematics book and a SPAG book. Students will be set a subject in at least one of these books each week. This will, more often than not, be set on a subject we have been studying in school during the week. Homework will be set on a Monday with a view of coming back the following Monday for marking.
