Welcome to Year 5!
Hope you all had a great Easter Holiday.
In Year 5 this term, we’re wondering…
What are the secrets of Survival?
This term in Year 5 we have transformed our classroom into a ‘Survival’ themed classroom with shelters, fires and logs to sit on.
Our key question is listed above as we attempt to answer it, we will be exploring the lives of different survivors including Bear Grylls and Pi Patel. We will explore how monuments and civilisations have survived and how species adapt to their environments to ensure survival of the species.
We will be having a Survival skills day at school, a trip to The Eden Project and school camp to London amoungst other curriculum enriching treats!
The Daily Routine
The Year 5 classroom door will be open for children to be dropped off each morning from 8:35 am until 8:50 am. Any child arriving after this time will need to sign in at the school office as the register will have closed.
On arrival, children are expected to put their belongings away tidily and begin their Early Morning Activity promptly.
At the end of the day, children can be collected between 3:10 pm and 3:25 pm from the classroom door. Any child not collected after this time will be taken to the office to await collection.
There will be a strong emphasis on the children’s presentation of work this year. We will be spending a lot of time each week learning the correct way to join the different combination of letters and the children will be expected to join their handwriting in every piece of work. We will be encouraging the children to take pride in their work, in terms of both the content and the way it is presented.
It is expected that each child will take full responsibility for their own personal belongings, especially being in Year 5, to support them with transition into Year 6 and later on into secondary school.
To support this, could we please ask that all uniform items (including shoes and coats) are marked with your child's full name.
All children, must have a PE kit in school. This term we will be doing PE (weather permitting) on Thursday mornings and Friday afternoons.
Stay in touch!
You are more than welcome to speak to your child's class teacher briefly at the end of the school day but if you would like a longer discussion, please feel free to make an appointment with the school office for a convenient time.
