Working together through Christ

Year 5

 

Welcome to Year 5 2018/2019 !

We have already had a great start to the Year, beginning with our topic on World War II.

 

Check back to find  news, images of our work and all the other activities we have taken part in.

 

Mrs Garling teaches the class every Monday and Friday and every other Wednesday, Mr Jones teaches the class every Tuesday, Thursday and every other Wednesday.

 

Home Learning

Every week children will receive a new set of spellings and a Maths homework task. They will be tested on these the following week. As the year progresses it is extremely important that you continue to revisit previous learning with your child to ensure that connections are made and that the learning is consolidated.  

 

Mini projects/choice boards will be sent home every half term based on current or new topics.  

 

Children should be reading at least 5 times a week for a minimum of 15 minutes with an adult or independently.  Yellow reading records should be signed every time a child is read with.  These should come to school each day and go home each night to record reading and will be checked by Mrs Garling or Mr Jones every Wednesday. Those children who read regularly and are showing progress will receive stickers for their Record of Success and House Points!

 

Swimming lessons commence on Wednesday 12th September so please make sure that the children are prepared with their swimming kit each Wednesday. Please ensure that they have their PE kit in school every day as sometimes it is necessary to change the times or days of PE lessons due to the weather.  During winter it is recommended that children have a pair of jogging bottoms and a school jumper or fleece for PE as it can be a bit chilly outside!

 

If you have any questions or concerns during the year please feel free to make an appointment to see Mr Jones or Mrs Garling or email us at:

Welcome back to a new term in Year 5 at St. Margaret's. 

 

We began the year discovering some large chunks of ice amongst drifting snow in the classroom. The pupils were eager to discover the clues that were hidden inside the ice. As the ice melted it revealed a compass, boat, map and an advert for expedition members. After some studying of the clues and a discussion about their significance it was revealed that we would be heading to 'Ice Worlds' and focusing our topic work on Shackleton's incredible journey in the Antarctic. The class were all keen to join the expedition and have written letters to apply for a place...

Home Learning reminder

 

Every Friday children  receive a new set of spellings. They will be tested on these the following Thursday. They have also received a Maths homework book which contains a variety of Maths challenges to be completed over the course of the term. Prizes are available for those who work hard on these. As the year progresses it is extremely important that you continue to revisit previous learning with your child to ensure that connections are made and that the learning is consolidated.

Christmas songs to be learnt for the Carol Concert at The Brighton Centre.

Christmas song lyrics

Angels from the realms of glory

Away in a manger

Gabriel's message

It's the most wonderful time of the year

Mary's boy child

Merry Christmas everyone

No room at the inn

Snowflakes

Turn down the lights

We need a little Christmas
