Welcome to Year Five!
In Year Five we have Miss Bevington and Mr Baker as Class Teachers.
Miss Frost, Mrs Lysons and Mrs Ellam are our Teaching Assistants. Mrs Curran will also work with children from the year group.
If you wish to contact the class teachers, please use the following emails: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
For the Autumn term our topic is "To Infinity and Beyond!" where we will learn all about Space. We will be looking at the history of space travel and famous astronauts. The topic links with our science unit of work where we will explore the Solar System and learn about the planets including the phases of the moon. We will also learn about the sun and how shadows are formed - making our own shadow clocks!
Children will have weekly spellings and times tables to learn, these will be sent home on a Thursday to allow children to practise, and tested the following Monday. Children are expected to read daily and complete their reading records. Where possible please take the time to read with your child, focusing on their reading comprehension skills. Some weeks children will also have a maths or literacy based task to complete.
Each class will have Outdoor Education with Mr Bean every other Thursday afternoon, please note that children will need to bring wellies and suitable outdoor clothing. Outdoor education takes place irrespective of the weather so please make sure your child is well equipped!
Children will have PE every Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure children have PE kit and suitable shoes for both indoor and outdoor. PLEASE label all PE kits and school uniform to save us time and you money!
Please see below for details of our weekly timetable.
