Welcome to Class 10 - Year 5

Our Class Team:

Class Teachers - Mrs Shaw & Mrs Burgess

Classroom Support - Miss Payne

A Very Warm Welcome to Class Ten!

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. 

Half term homework - we have introduced half-termly homework activities. These are to be completed across the whole half term and can be done in any way as long as they are based on our knowledge organisers. These are to be completed to a high standard and will be checked at regular intervals.

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.

Knowledge Organisers

Below you can see our Year 5 knowledge organisers. Here you can find out about what we'll be learning in our lessons this half term. These will be updated regularly.

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.

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.

Mathletics

Mathletics is a great programme to use in school and at home. It is designed to develop and improve all areas of mathematics from arithmetic to problem solving. It will be targeted to your child's particular year group and ability. Children can access this at home using their own log-in and can earn certificates each week. The maths class with the most points in a week also recieves the Mathletics Trophy.

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 will be sent home with the spellings for this half term.
