NOTICES - We will be taking part in a Superheroes Workshop this half-term, designing and producing our own comic strips!
Please see the Curriculum Newsletter below for an overview of what we will be studying this half-term.
In our topic work we have been exploring the world of Ancient Greece. We have learned about the great battles of Thermopylae and Marathon, the difference between the cities of Athens and Sparta as well as many more interesting things.
We recently found out that Spartan boys had to take part in an agoge or training ritual before they could join the army. Click on the link below to see if you have what it takes to become a Spartan warrior!
Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to our Class Page. Here, you will find key information about what we will be learning this year, links to useful websites and other information.
Key information for Year 5
Our class teacher is Mr McCartney and our Teaching Assistant is Ms Davies.
Our P.E days are Tuesdays and Fridays.
Children will need their P.E kits on these days. P.E kits should remain in school all week.
Homework will be given out on a Friday night and should be returned the following Friday. Children should try to read at home every night and always practice their spellings.
Parents: Please try to read at home with your child every night, even just for 5-10 minutes and then sign their home reading record. It really does make a massive difference to their progression in reading and all other subjects.
The Big Picture
Happy New Year!
Year 5 have come back to school feeling refreshed and ready to learn following the Christmas break. We have launched straight into our instruction writing, using Mary Shelley's Frankenstein as an inspiration to write a set of instructions to make our own monster!
We will be exploring Classic Poetry this half term, which I am sure the children will really enjoy. In Maths, we will be dealing with Multiplication, Division and Fractions. A link to some fun games for these topics can be found below!
HIT THE BUTTON!
In Maths, we have been playing Hit The Button to aid with our basic skills. Click here to find the link!
