Summer Term – 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 Miss Stephens/Miss Clyne will begin to take groups in order to help us become Year 6 ready.

Cycle 2

During our last learning cycle we had lots of fun in Year 5, from dancing to Justin Beiber in PE, to debating whether or not junk food should be banned! 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!

Welcome to Year 5

Year 5

Welcome to year 5. This year your teacher will be Miss Gorton. Also working in year 5 will be Mrs. Breeze and Mrs. Weston. If you wish to speak to any member of staff in Upper School, please make an appointment at the start or the end of the day.

Everybody looks very smart in their school uniforms, and to keep them yours we ask if children’s names can be written in jumpers as many get lost throughout the year. This would be extremely helpful for all staff throughout the school.

Homework

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

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). Children who fail to complete reading homework or who fail to get their diary signed will spend 15 minutes reading in their playtime.

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:

 

  1. Treat others the way you want to be treated
  2. Always be ready to learn
  3. Respect everyone and the environment
  4. Always use your manners
  5. Always try your best in everything you do
  6. Work as a team to encourage and inspire
