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 first topic will be 'How to Train your Dragon', which will be directly linked to the Vikings. Other topics in year five include; The Mayans and 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 all week this half term. 

 Chidlren will have PE on Wednesdays (Class 8), Thursdays (Class 6 and 7) and Fridays (Class 6, 7 and 8).

 

Our SEAL topic for this half term is 'Getting on and Falling out', during this topic children will learn about friendships, maintaining relationships and strategies for solving problems. 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 Relationships.

 

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!

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 week ending 9/11/18:

Class 6: 90%

Class 7: 95.8% 

Class 8: 90.2%

 

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

 

Autumn term 1 attendance:

Class 6: 93.9%

Class 7: 97.2%

Class 8: 97.2%

 

Well done to Class 7 and 8 for achieving 97.2%

Anti-bullying at Broomhill; All classrooms have this Anti-bullying poster displayed, which has been designed by some of our chidlren. Every year, Anti-bullying is marked by having themed lessons as part of our SEAL work and where appropriate English work.
