Welcome to the Year 5 page
Miss Strong - Giraffe Class
Mr Dickie - Tiger Class
Homework - Homework will be given out on a Thursday and due in the following Tuesday. Homework in Year 5 will be Literacy, Maths and Spellings. Children are expected to learn their times tables and these are practised daily.
Reading - Children are expected to read at least 5 times a week at home. Please record reading at home in reading records. Reading records will be checked daily. Their achievements are shown on their class reading tree. Every child has an apple on the tree which moves around as their days reading at home increase. It becomes very competitive to be the first one to reach the 'Golden Apple'!
PE - We have 2 PE lessons per week. Please ensure PE kit is in school (including a change of footwear) Monday to Friday.
Autumn 2 - Take One Scientist
Our Take One Scientist this term is Ahmed Zewail. He was an Egyptian and American chemist, known as the "father of femtochemistry". He was awarded the 1999 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on femtochemistry and became the first Egyptian and Arab to win a Nobel Prize in a scientific field, and the second African to win a Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
This will link to our science topic - properties of materials, where we will be focussing on vocabulary used to describe materials as well as investigating conductors and insulators, dissolving, and reversible and irreversible changes. Our history topic will be the Anglo-Saxons and the Scots, where we will be looking at who they were, where they came from and aspects of their life such as what they did for the future and how they lived.
