Hello, 

Welcome back for another term! 

This term, we are really excited to start learning our songs and preparing for Nothwich Sings, which takes place in the Summer Term. At the end of last term, the Bloodhound Project was introduced to the children and we are all eager to get designing and building our cars. More information about joining us to celebrate the children's final outcomes at end of the project will be sent to parents nearer the time.  

Remember to keep Friday 8th March clear in your diary for the Year 5 Celebration Assembly, we would love to see you all there!

 

Overview

Year 5 is an important year as the children start their transition in to upper key stage 2 and this helps prepare them for life in Year 6 and beyond! 

Here in Year 5, we teach a broad and balanced curriculum and the children experience various topics, trips and experiences. Please click on the links below to find out all about the Spring term in Year 5 and this term's homework menu. 

Northwich Sings:

Ahead of Nortwich Sings on Thursday 20th June, Year 5 are putting a great deal of time and effort into learning all of the wonderful songs. To allow the children more time to practise, this term there will be no Homework Menu, however My Maths and Spag.com activities will still be set weekly. The expectation is that the children will learn the words and practise the songs at home. To help the children with this, the words to the songs Year 5 are expected to learn are attached below. If you have any questions regarding Northwich Sings please feel free to contact us. 

Things to remember: 

Homework: The menu will be set during the first week of each half term and due in on the last Monday of the half term to allow time to share the children's work. Mymaths and SPAG.com wil be set on a Friday to be returned on the next Friday on alternating weeks. 

Reading: The children are expected to read at least three times per week for 10 per minutes and to change their reading book in the mornings regularly.  Please write a comment in the children’s reading records each time to let us know how they are getting on with their reading at home.. 

Spelling: After revising the Year 3 and 4 spelling words at the beginning of the year, Year 5 spend a great deal of time learning to spell the Year 5 and 6 spelling words and using them in their work, across the curriculum. In class, children have access to the spelling list and there is also a copy of the words in their reading record. We hope you can support us in helping your child to use these words as often as possible in their speech and written work, spelt correctly. In addition, to support with words children often spell incorrectly they are provided a prompt sheet in the back of their English books, which also includes spelling patterns and space for a personal spelling list. A copy of this and the Year 5 and 6 spelling list can be found using the links at the bottom of the page, to support with spelling at home and homework.

PE: Mr Cairns will be teaching PE on a Wednesday. The children will also have an additional PE lesson on a Monday, which is led by their teacher. Please make sure you have your kit every Monday and Wednesday. 

Mrs Gatiss will be teaching Year 5 French on a Wednesday.    

Water Bottles: We encourage the children to bring a water bottle each day, please ensure it is only water.  If your child is having a packed lunch please send a separate drink. 

Class Assembly: Your child will be involved in a class assembly once every half term. You will be notified of the dates on the whole school newsletter.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and speak to us at the end of the day.
