WELCOME TO CLASS 5
Welcome to Year 5 and 6 where we work together to not only achieve end of year curricular aims, but also to develop the skills to be lifelong learners and ready to move through the transition to secondary school. Our aim for all of the children in Class 5 is to develop the 5R's of learning: Resilience, Responsibility, Resourcefulness, Reasoning and Reflection.
We encourage the children to formulate questions about the topics we cover and develop a sense of curiosity about their learning.
PE - Thursday afternoons
Class 5 also like to make use of our beautiful woodlands and go for a daily mile each morning. Please ensure your child has suitable footwear and a coat for this purpose.
Homework- This is shown on Google Classroom and is linked to our current ILP. A folder is there for work to be handed in. Checked weekly on a Thursday.
Spellings - Issued on Mondays, practised daily every morning. These are also shown on Google Classroom along with our weekly handwriting focus. Practising both the spellings and the handwriting as part of your homework will be beneficial.
Our Imaginative Learning Project (ILP) for Summer 2: Hola Mexico!
Welcome to Mexico. Get ready to explore this unique country, from its towering temples and stunning geography to its pulsing rhythms and fun festivals. Is your tummy rumbling? Concoct a traditional fruit cocktail or a delicious Mexican meal. What’s on your shopping list? Go steady with the spices. Discover the mysterious world of the ancient Mayan civilisation. Make their chocolate, learn their poetry, play their ball game and follow all of their curious rituals. Just try to keep your head. Feel like celebrating? Design a flute, grab a drum, join a tribe and make some noise. Have you got what it takes to be chief? Let’s find out.

By Year 6, children are at the end of the 'Shakespeare and More' spelling scheme.The spelling overview, explains how this scheme works.
Spelling lists shown here are for year 5's and we normally get through 1- 2 every half term. Year 6 will be revisiting and revising these patterns and lists through their Nelson Spelling revision books. Therefore it will be of benefit for them to also be practising these words again.
All children should also be regularly practising the Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 spelling lists, which incorporate most of these words. It should be noted that these lists work around spelling patterns and there are many other words that can be found within these patterns. Finding other words which fit the patterns as well as exploring exceptions to the rules, is imperative to good spelling.
The weekly spellings are all included on the spelling and handwriting tab of our Google Classroom.
