Welcome

Mr Hunt teaches Class Five, supported by Mrs Duckworth (HLTA) and Mrs Cowling Learning Support Assistant.

PE - Currently we have PE sessions Tuesdays and Fridays, but these are occasionally moved, so it is best to have kit in at all times. This half term it is Swimming on Tuesdays and Plymouth Argyle Friday afternoons.  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 non-negotiables
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).
It is expected for Year 5 that pupils complete two pieces of homework a week:  The maths set each week (usually MyMaths) and one other item from the homework menu.  Homework will be set every week on Friday, to be completed by Wednesday Morning the following week.
 
 
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.
