Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

 

                  Respect   Relationships    Reflective    Responsible

 

A very warm welcome to Year 5 from Mr Wilson, Mrs Hill and Mrs Turner! This year, our teaching assistants are Miss Wint, Miss Veasy, Miss Dawson and Miss Pearson.

 

Children are now entering upper KS2 and as well as getting ready for new challenges, they will now become role models to our younger children. Throughout Year 5,  children will be exploring a variety of exciting and engaging cross-curricular topics.

 

Our  current topic is 'Maya Civilisation' which is being closely linked to the book 'The Sun Staff'. In Autumn term our topic was  'How to Train your Dragon', which was directly linked to the Vikings.  Finally in the summer term, our topic will be 'Our Continent'.

 

All of the topics will have a Creative Homework Project linked to them, which will give your child the opportunity to showcase their talents, strengths and interests. This will be shared on our website and on Class Dojo.

 

 PE kits need to be kept in school on a Thursday and Friday this term please. 

Thursday am- Swimming for all children.

Thursday pm- Squash for all children

Friday pm- Team building skills with Corporal Butcher

 

 

Our SEAL topic for this half term is 'Going for Goals'.

During this topic, children will learn about the skills needed to be an effective learner. Children will also learn how to set a goal and how to meet their goal. Children have also set themselves  a class goal and will be working towards getting a certain number of dojo points, ready for a reward when they reach this target. Children will have a weekly SEAL lesson and will learn about our 4Rs at Broomhill weekly, through our class assembly sessions.

 

The 4R we will be focusing on this half term will be Responsible.

 

If you ever have any problems or concerns, please see a member of the Year Five team at the beginning or end of the school day; or by phoning the  school office. Here at Broomhill, we have an open door policy and welcome parents into school.

 

We shall all look forward to a brilliant year with Year Five!

 

 

 

 

 

Class Dojo

Support your child with their behaviour at in school by signing up to Class Dojo.

We will use ClassDojo to communicate with you. By using the app, we can provide your child with positive points for a variety of reasons. It also allows us to instantly share messages, updates and photos from the class.

You will need to receive a code from your  child's class teacher to see all the benefits.

 

Homework expectations:

  • We expect children to read as much as possible. Children in year 5 should be reading daily.
  • Children are given a spelling test weekly (every Thursday), so we expect children to practise their spellings at home. We have one practice session in school to help children with this. Spelling lists will be put on Class Dojo weekly.
  • In addition to this, we will often give children English or maths related homework on a Friday. This is always due in on the following Friday.  Again, this will be put on Class Dojo.

 

Attendance:

The more children are in school, the more they are learning. Our aim is for children's attendance to be at least 97%.

 

Attendance for Autumn 2

Class 6: 92%

Class 7: 96.19%

Class 8: 93.29%

 

Well done to Class 7 for achieving the highest attendance in Year 5!
