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 children 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 'New beginnings', during this topic children will focus on their roles and responsibilities in and out of school, how they can make other children feel welcome, ways to control feelings of anger and how to be a good friend. 

 

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

 

If you ever have any problems or concerns, please see a member of the Year Five team at the 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, teachers can provide your child with positive points for a variety of reasons. It also allows teachers to instantly share messages, updates and photos from the class.

You will need to receive a code from your 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, 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.
