Meet our team!

Welcome to Year 5!

 

    Respect   Relationships   Resilient   Reflective   Responsible

Learning from home

 

We have put together some links to online resources that can support children learning at home.

 

Parents- We would ask that Parents consider how to keep children safe when they are online. NSPCC has some fantastic guidance available here: https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/.  We would recommend setting parental controls on any devices and keep an eye on your child's history. 

 

Children- just a reminder if you ever see anything that makes you uncomfortable please speak to an adult. This website is brilliant for learning about how to keep yourself safe https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/ - there are even games!

Every child has been given a login for classroom secrets. They will have work set every Monday, Wednesday and Friday sent via Class Dojo.

 

Reading for pleasure

 

We have produced some suggested reading lists for each year group which might be helpful to provide high quality texts at home for your child.

Audible stories Audible are now offering children free audio books whilst schools are closed.

www.getepic.com (hundreds of free books to read on line)

 

Maths games

  • White Rose Maths Select your year group to view videos and activities to complete

A very warm welcome to Year 5 from Mr Langford, Mrs Burdass, Miss Broderick, Mr Wilson, Mrs Turner and Miss Locke! This year, our teaching assistants are Miss Wint, Mr Priestley, Miss Dawson and Miss Pearson.

 

Children in year 5 will be taught English and Maths in their year groups.

The three year 5 teachers are Mrs Turner, Mr Langford and Mr Wilson.

 

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, the children will be exploring a variety of exciting and engaging cross-curricular topics including: The Vikings, The Mayans, Our Continent and Healthy Me. Our first topic will be The Vikings, where our year group story will be How To Train Your Dragon.

 

All of the topics in Year Five 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.

 

Throughout the year we will cover weekly SEAL lessons, which will focus on our 5 Rs. This half term our 5R focus is Resilience and our SEAL topics is 'Going for goals'.

 

Could we please ask that you ensure PE kits are kept in school all week (including a change of outdoor trainers). Our P.E days are:

 

Class 3: Wednesday and Thursday

Class 4: Monday and Thursday

Class 5: Monday and Thursday

Class 6: Tuesday and Friday

Class 7: Tuesday and Thursday

 

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.

https://www.classdojo.com

 

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 Monday), 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.
  • By the end of year 5, children already should know all of their times tables. We recommend that children practise these as much as possible. We are now signed on to 'Rockstars Times tables which is proving very popular and practise makes perfect when it comes to times tables!
  • 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%.

Our wonderful classrooms!

At Broomhill, we all follow the 5Rs; Resect, Relationships, Responsible, Reflective and Resilient. Here are some examples of our work based on these 5Rs.

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.
