Year 5 A - Mrs Lowry 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year 5
Our names are Mrs Lowry and Mrs Carswell. Learning in Year 5 is supported by Mrs Cave.
During the Autumn term, we will be looking at a range of topics in our class.
In Maths, we are looking at place value and the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).
During Literacy, we are basing our writing on our class book ‘War of the Worlds’. We will use this as inspiration to write a piece of instructional writing. It will also be the basis of our reading lessons.
In the afternoons, we will look at a wide variety of topics, such as Earth and Space in Science, our ever-changing nation in Geography and the Anglo-Saxons in History.
Children receive weekly Art sessions led by Mrs Walsh.
Our PE days are Mondays and Thursdays. Please make sure that your child has a named kit, which includes black pumps or trainers, black shorts and either a green or white t-shirt. Long hair needs to be tied back.
All earrings need to be removed before school or the lesson for PE sessions. Where ears have recently been pierced, it is essential that children have their own plasters from home to cover their earrings. This needs to be done either at home or by the child themselves. This is in line with the school policy.
Excellent attendance is vital for helping your child to achieve their full potential. Please ensure your child is in school promptly at 8.50.
School finishes at 3.15pm and children continue to be collected from classrooms at this time.
Spellings will be given out every Monday to be practiced at home for a spelling test on Friday. Parents are encouraged to read with their children every day to support progress in reading and to help nurture a love for reading.
There will be weekly TT Rockstar battles against the other year 5 class, please ensure your child takes part as timetables are a vital part of your child’s education.
