Autumn Term

 

Dear Parents,

 

A warm welcome to Year 5, and we hope you had a wonderful summer break! It’s been great seeing the children back so refreshed and raring to go. We have a very busy and exciting year ahead of us, and we look forward to meeting you all throughout the year. Firstly, we invite you all to our ‘Meet the Teacher’ session on Thursday 12th September 2019, from 15.30-16.00, which all class parents are invited to attend.

 

The year group is divided into 3 classes:

5G taught by Mr Goodarzi and is supported by Mrs Wood;

5B taught by Miss Booton and is supported by Mrs Wride and Miss Disley;

5PH taught by Miss Lawrence and is supported by Mrs Davies.

  

This term, the initial focus of study is Ancient Greece, reflected in our English (see below) and our History lessons, which will focus on myths and legends, and the impact on ancient civilisations on today’s society. After half term, we will move on to studying the Americas.

 

English

To tie in with our Ancient Greece topic, we will be studying a children’s book called Who Let The Gods Out by Maz Evans. We will also be covering various myths and legends from the Ancient Greek era.  Once again, please can you continue to encourage your children to read every night, and sign the reading diary so that we can continue to monitor in class. After half term, we will be reading a charming little tale called Armstrong: The Adventurous Journey of a Mouse to the Moon.

 

Mathematics

We will be starting our work looking at place value, progressing on to addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Within this, children will be faced with a range of problems to solve. We will be working hard at making sure the children know their times tables, but it is imperative that they continue to practise them at home.

 

Science

For the first part of the term, we will be looking at forces in motion, including: gravity, air resistance and friction and water resistance. After the half term break, we will study the mind blowing topic Earth and Space.

 

PPA, P.E and Swimming

PPA will take place every Thursday afternoon.

 

P.E kits are required to be in school every day. Kit consists of black shorts, white t-shirt (with or without the school logo) and trainers.

During the first half term, Year 5 will be doing gymnastics in the hall, so the children will need indoor kit on Tuesday.

 

For the Autumn term, Year 5 will be swimming every Wednesday morning at the HALO pool in Hereford.  A separate letter will contain all the details for this.

 

If your child cannot participate in swimming or PE for any reason, they must bring a letter explaining reasons why as it is part of the curriculum.

 

Routines

We appreciate that as the children grow older, they gain more independence. Children who wish to walk or cycle home on their own must have a completed ‘Walking Home Alone’ form which is available from your class teacher.

 

Uniform

Correct school uniform must be worn at all times, and all garments must be labelled with your child's name. The labelling of PE kit and bags would also be extremely beneficial!

 

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

 

Many thanks,

 

The Year 5 Team
