Welcome to Year 5.
The teachers in Year 5 are Miss Yarrall (Class 7), Mr Hartley (Class 8 and Year Leader) and Mr Sandell (Class 9).
We also have five teaching assistants - Mrs Venner, Mrs Hedderly, Mrs Togwell, Mrs O'Sullivan and Mrs Dodgson - who will be working in all three classes throughout the week.
Our first term's topic is South America, which will be part of our geography unit.
In science, we will be studying forces and Living things in their habitats, whilst in D.T. we will making our own South American biscuits.
Thank you for sending in all the lovely South America homework from your holidays.
During the week we will set 3 pieces of homework - English, Maths and Spellings. The homework will help the children consolidate or extend work that they have been doing in class. We also request that you listen to your child read for 10 minutes 5 times a week and ask them questions about what they have read.
English, spellings and maths will all be set on a Wednesday. All homework is then due back in on the following Monday morning. As we are trying to develop the independence of the children it will be their responsibility to hand in their work on time.
