Welcome

Mr Bullock teaches Class Five, supported by Mrs Baxter (HLTA) and Mrs Cowling.

PE - Currently we have PE sessions Wednesdays and Fridays, but these are occasionally moved, so it is best to have kit in at all times. Your child also requires an outdoor learning kit. Please ensure these items are clearly labelled.

Topics we will cover this year are:

  • ‘Invasion’; 'Space'
  • ‘Where does chocolate come from?’ 
  • 'Who were the Mayans?'

We will update this page with overviews of current topics, topic homework, photos of class work and other important information related to Class 5.

 

 

Below, are some guidelines for the curriculum content in Year 5 : what a child is currently expected to know / be able to do before entering Y6.
You could use these guidelines to support them at home.
 
Paper copies have been sent out of the following :
Year 3/4, 5/6 spelling lists
Curriculum Overview
Y5 end of year expectations
Autumn Term homework sheet (Topic, Writing & Maths tasks)
 
Homework. 
Ongoing spelling practice from the Year 3/4, 5/6 sheets.
Ongoing times tables practice.
Ongoing reading : library book, banded book, any book from home - or any other reading material your child is interested in. Any of these 'reads' can be entered into the yellow reading diary and will count towards the bookmark stars (which add up to progress points).
Topic homework - either one big project or more than one / several smaller projects.
My Maths - set every week, generally on Saturday / Sunday. Children always have a week from whatever day it is set, so they will always have a weekend to complete it.
 
Thank you for the fantastic homework projects brought in so far!
 
Homework Club this year is on a Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime.
It is a friendly club in a calm atmosphere with adult help on hand. It lasts for half an hour, so is not the whole lunchtime. Children can sign up for this at morning register time, in the breakfast area.
 
If you ever have any questions about any of the above, or about curriculum information, or concerns about your child's progress, please feel welcome to send in a note or come in to talk. 
Here are the cursive letters that we practice at school. Cursive handwriting is generally thought to be the easiest, most fluent way to write, once mastered. It also aids spelling through 'muscle-memory' when joining.
