Miss Caley in Class 5C.
Mr Miles in Class 5M.
Mrs Paines is the Year 5 Teaching Assistant who supports both classes.
If you can not find the information you need within our Year 5 area, please do not hesitate to speak to us at the gate at the end of the day or write a note in your child's reading record.
As a reminder, in Year 5, children are expected to complete 30 minutes of Lexia at home each week alongside a set SumDog task and a written piece of homework. Homework is given out on a Thursday and due in on the following Tuesday. Children are also responsible for recording reads in their reading records with you, as the parents, to sign acknowledging your child has read at home.
PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. However, children are expected to bring their kits in on a Monday and take them home each Friday to be washed ready for the following week.
What we are learning
Our topic is now 'Ancient Egyptians'. Within this topic we will be looking at what life was like for Ancient Egyptians and what it was like for Howard Carter discovering Tutankhamun's tomb.
Our stories for this half term are 'Secrets of a Sun King' by Emma Carroll and 'The Story of Tutankhamun' by Patricia Cleveland-Peck.
For PE we will be developing our Athletic skills.
