Welcome all to Year 5 - Autumn.
I know that starting a new school year in a new class with a new teacher can be daunting. Be assured that you are in good hands and I have many exciting, fun and challenging activities that will keep you engaged this term. Thank you to all those children who have introduced their parents/ guardians to me. Everyone feels better when they can put a face to a name. If I haven't managed to see you yet, I am on the playground every evening; come and say hello!
I will attach our newsletter with full details below, but curriculum highlights this term include:
Place Value and Written methods
Written addition and subtraction
Our topic this term is Mountains and The Anglo Saxons. We will be doing all manner of exciting things including learning about:
Geography and History:
We expect children to read at home on a regular basis in year 5 and keep practising the rapid recall of their times tables up to 12x12. Each week, children will receive a piece of literacy home learning, a piece of maths home learning and fifteen spellings to learn. Home learning is usually given out on a Thursday and should be submitted no later than Tuesday to enable us to mark and feedback. Children should wear their PE kit into school on Friday ready for PE class (yellow t-shirts, black shorts or tracksuit bottoms during colder days and trainers or black pumps). Watch out for information about the after-school clubs timetable as Mr Blake will be running an exciting Design and Technology club each week.
Don't forget you can track our progress throughout the term on Twitter @firsprimarysale #Year5DT
Thank you for your continued support.
Mr Tumilty, Mr Blake, Mrs Reynolds-Smith, Miss Burrows.
