WELCOME TO Year 5'S PAGE
It was so wonderful to welcome the children back into school and Year 5 have made an excellent start to their year.
Check this page regularly to see photos of our learning and for the latest homework and curriculum information.
Our P.E. days this term are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Make sure your P.E. kits are in school on these days. It would be best for earrings to be taken out at home to minimise the risk of them getting lost, but please make sure the children can take their own earrings out if this can't be done at home.

Children have been given a log in for EdShed to practice spellings and maths. This can be found in their reading records.
Further information regarding spelling can be found here.
Autumn Curriculum Booklet can be found here.
Autumn homework grid can be found here. (ALL homework tasks need to be submitted virtually via the Seesaw App or Google Classroom platform.)
We have started our ukelele lessons with George in Year 5. Miss Clapp was very impressed with how much we had remembered from last time!
Science - Dissolving
We have been looking at materials in science this half term. We made predictions of which materials would dissolve in water and then tested them. We then came up with ideas of how we could separate the solutions and tried them out. We found out that the only way to separate a salt/water solution is to use evaporation.
Gymnastics - Balance Routines
Year 5 spent the first half term working on different types of leaps and jumps, specifically focussing on stag jumps and split leaps. We then put them into a sequence with balances and travels to create a balance beam routine. Well done to the children who took the photos!
Black History Month Badges
As part of our ongoing work about diversity and equality, Year 5 have been looking at the reasons that Black History Month was started. We designed and made badges to show our support to people of all colours and backgrounds.
We have been practising using a Gattegno Chart to represent numbers and add and subtract multiples of 10s, 100s, 1000s, 10,000s, 100,000s and millions!
