Hello and welcome to year 5!
We are so excited for this year and the new topics.
Our topic this half term is based around ‘The Greatest Showman’ and we will be learning lots of things such as the history of the circus, animals and adaptation, animal rights and the wider world.
The school day starts at 8:50am with the classroom doors opening at 8:45am. Registration is at 9:00am and learning starts immediately after. The school day ends at 3:05pm and children will need to be collected by an adult from the classroom door.
In year 5, children are allowed to leave the classroom without an adult. If you would like your child to be able to leave the classroom without an adult you will need to fill in a form and return it to school. Forms are available from the office or from the classroom.
If you would like your child to be collected from school by someone other than yourself then a form will need to be filled in to advise school who your child/children can leave with. Forms are available from the office or from the classroom.
Waterbottles should be brought into school on Monday and then will be sent home on Friday. Reading books and reading journals will be sent home daily, and it would be beneficial if children read at least 3 times at home during each week. Reading diaries should be kept up to date by children and then signed by an adult.
Spellings will be tested and new spellings given out on a Monday. Homework will also be given on a Friday and is due back into school the following Wednesday.
Our PE day is Wednesday and children will require appropriate indoor/outdoor PE kit according to our PE policy.

This week, we have been exploring place value to secure our understanding. We have investigated using number lines, counters, denes and even straws. We have had lots of fun in these practical maths sessions and now feel confident to use this knowledge in our maths learning.Posted By: 5/6D 5C 6K
