Cycle 4

In Year 5 we want to strive to be the best in everything we do and begin to show that we are year 6 ready. After all, there are only nine school weeks left of being a Year 5 class member.

Not only do we want to create a healthy atmosphere of competition among our friends, we also want to take on personal challenges and continue to better ourselves in all areas of learning. To do this Mrs Clyne will begin to take groups in order to help us become Year 6 ready.

Cycle 3

Great work Year 5 we are nearly half way through the school year! Time flies when you’re having fun and this has definitely been the case in Cycle 2! We have sky rocketed into Space, researched the French capital (Paris) to write an information leaflet for Mr Thompson and continued to amaze me as Mathematicians.

Reminders

  • Homework is sent out on a Friday and should be returned to school on a Wednesday, with a spelling test being held every Friday.
  • Diaries must to be signed and returned the next day to show your child has read at home (15-20 minutes).

Cycle 2

During our last learning cycle we had lots of fun in Year 5, from learning a dance in PE, to being on the edge of our seats reading our class book Floodland! We have worked extremely hard in all our subjects, and our aim is to keep up the hard working atmosphere we have created. I hope that this cycle we can be successful learners once again!

Reminders

  • Homework is sent out on a Friday and should be returned to school on a Wednesday.
  • Spelling test every Friday.
  • Diaries need to be signed and returned the next day to show your child has read at home (15-20 minutes).

Welcome to Year 5

Year 5

Welcome back to a new year at Brentnall; I hope that everyone has had a lovely break. I would like to welcome your child to Year 5 – Amethyst.

This year your teacher will be Miss Gorton. Also working in Year 5 will be Mrs. Weston, Mrs Medowcroft and Mrs Smethurst.  

Uniform

Everybody is looking very smart in their new uniforms; we ask that children’s names can be written in all items, to ensure no uniform is lost throughout the year.

Homework

This year homework will be sent out on a Friday and should be returned to school on a Wednesday. Each week will include a piece of Maths and a set of spellings that will be tested on a Friday.

Diary

Every child in upper school has been provided with a school diary, this should be taken home every night along with a reading book that has been chosen by your child. The diary is to be signed and returned the next day to show your child has read at home (15-20 minutes).

Always Rules

Every Friday after assembly we will discuss our 6 Always rules. Each child will reflect upon the week, discussing as a class if they have succeeded in each therefore being able to move up our board. On reaching the top an Always badge will be rewarded to wear with pride. Our rules are:

  • Always treat others the way you want to be treated
  • Always be honest
  • Always respect everyone and the environment
  • Always use your manners
  • Always try your best in everything you do
  • Always work as a team to encourage and inspire

House Points

Excellent behaviour is rewarded with house points; the winning team is then announced during Friday’s Celebration Assembly. Children can receive house points for behaviours such as using good manners, being helpful, following the ‘Always’ rules and trying their best.
