Welcome to Year 5!
On this page you will find all the information that you need about what’s going on in Year 5.
In 5SB this was awarded to Sara for a really descriptive and detailed piece of writing and to Caeus who wrote with great honesty about his feelings.
In 5CL Amy used the most beautiful figurative language and Kameron included plenty of similes in his writing. Well done to both of you, your writing was very enjoyable to read.
Homework will be given out on a Thursday. Often homework will be something for you to do or to talk through rather than written work that needs handing in, but when something does need to be handed in, please send it back in by Tuesday.
On the remote learning/ homework page you will find your child’s weekly timetable which will give you an overview of their learning in school and their homework tasks. You will then need to log into Showbie and open the homework folder to access the tasks.
Below you can find a link to key documents which will give you as a parent or carer an overview of what our Year 5 pupils will be learning this year and the skills that they will need to develop.
Click here to find out more about each topic and, as ever, if you have any questions about your child’s learning then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Year 5 classes will start at 8.55am. We would appreciate it if children could be dropped as near to this time as possible in order to maintain social distancing and ensure that all year groups are arriving at different times.
We would ask that you encourage your child to be independent when coming into school. It is very important for your child’s development for them to be able to take responsibility for themselves and their own property. No parents will be allowed on to the yard in the morning for drop off. Year 5 children will enter through the pupils gate and the black door and go straight to their classroom.
At the end of the day, Year 5 children can be collected from the yard by the main gate at 3.15pm. We ask parents collecting children from Year 5 if they do come on to the yard to stand by the wall. We work with a “hands up” collection system. Your child will not be sent to an adult collecting until a member of staff has seen who is there to collect. If someone different is due to collect your child please indicate so in the communication diary. We would encourage parents to collect children away from the yard at a prearranged drop off point where convenient to allow for social distancing to be observed on the yard. Again, please indicate your pick up point in the communication diary.
Should you wish to meet with a year 5 teacher, this can be arranged by email or by indicating in the communication diary.
