Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to Year 5 from Mr Rich and Mrs Comins.
Mr Rich and Mrs Comins work hard to ensure that we are ready for Upper Key Stage 2. We're now preparing ourselves to be role models to the younger children, but also ready to learn. We have a ‘can-do’ attitude towards our work.
In Year 5, we love to learn. Our teacher and teaching assistant ensure that our learning is fun, but focussed on helping us to be the best we can be! Marvellous Maths, Exciting English and Terrific Topic is the order of each day, with thrills and spills along the way!
We will be exploring lots of exciting, engaging and interesting cross-curricular topics this year. These include: ‘Life is the Pits!’, ‘Alchemy Island’, ‘Spectacular Space’, ‘Traders and Raiders’, ‘Resplendent Rainforests’ and ‘Hola Mexico’. Some of these topics will have a Creative Homework project linked them, giving us the opportunity to show our interests, strengths and talents.
Regular reading at home and school will be encouraged along with an emphasis on learning times tables and the spelling of key words.
Maths Homework will be given out each Friday to be completed and handed in by the following Friday. Spellings will be given out weekly and tested the following week.
Mr Rich and Mrs Comins and the children promise to work hard so that we are able to be the best we can be!
