Welcome to Class 10S - Year 5

Our Class Team:

Class Teacher - Mrs Shaw

Classroom Support - Mrs Clare

A Very Warm Welcome to Class Ten S!

We are a Y5 class who always strive to be the best we can be. We are proud of the progress we make in lessons, and as we grow and learn, we are proud to be becoming good people.

WE ARE LEARNING TO LEARN, LEARNING TO LIVE AND LEARNING TO LOVE.

Here are some clues as to how we do it:

Equipment: we always have our planners, reading books and homework books in school every day; our PE kits are in school on Tuesday and our games kits are in school on Fridays. PE kits are an essential part of the school uniform. We bring money in a named envelope. Class 10S have flute lessons on Wednesday afternoons and we ensure we are prepared by having our flutes in school.

HAVING THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT HELPS US LEARN TO LIVE

Homework: we do spelling and handwriting homework every weekday; at weekends we do other English and Maths tasks - these can be great fun, especially when we have to find things out for ourselves.

DOING HOMEWORK HELPS US LEARN TO LEARN

Friendship: we always respect each others’ points of view; we listen to each other and respond politely; we treat others as we would like to be treated ourselves. Prayer times, charity work and worship help us to feel close friends with God.

BEING FRIENDLY HELPS US LEARN TO LOVE

READING AWARDS: Reading awards assemblies are held at the end of each half term. To earn a bronze certificate children need to read a minimum of five times each week. Platinums are awarded to children who go above and beyond and even read in the holidays! Help class 10S to win the trophy and read lots at home.

This half term we noticed a huge improvement in our reads! Thank you to those at home who helped us to achieve this.

Our new Author of the Term is Gill Lewis

Y5-6 Electricity KO Winter 19Y5-6 Evolution KO Winter 19

This Term in School...

In Science we will be looking at electricity, evolution and fossils.

We're reading 'Into the Forest' by Anthony Browne in English and have written an emotional email to Dad and a short note to persuade the Boy to follow his mother's instructions and take the long way, or to take the short cut through the forest.

In maths we have been finding the perimeter and area of composite rectilinear shapes.

We have two very interesting trips to look forward to this term - Fiddler's Ferry where we will learn all about how electricity is generated and Safety Central where we will find out how to keeo safe in several aspects of life.

Birchwood High School Performance

Years 5 and 6 enjoyed a morning trip to Birchwood High School to watch their performance of Beauty and the Beast. The high school students did a superb job and had our classes enraptured with their act. Our pupils made notes on the performance to enable them to write a review next week.

Meet the Teacher

A huge 'Thank You' to all parents who attended 'Meet the Teacher' For those of you who couldn't attend, or would just like a recap of the information shared with you, the powerpoint from the afternoon will soon be attached.

Reading Plus Online

Do continue to encourage the use of this at home. It is designed to improve reading fluency and comprehension as well as developing inference skills (which are vital skills for the SATs). Children can access this at home using their own log-in and it will contribute towards a reading award as long as it is signed by an adult in school planners.

Spellings.

In addition to weekly spellings it is important for your child to practise the common exception words for their year group. We distribute these over each half term. Letters have been sent home with the spellings for this half term. A copy of the letter for Year 5 is attached below.
