Year 5 Information
Mrs Clare Rice
The children have all settled really well into new routines and I've been really impressed with how enthusiastic they are with their learning. We have spent the last few weeks looking at the curriculum with our classes to ensure that we know exactly where children are now in their learning. We have spent time ‘remembering’ learning so that we can now continue with the Year 5 curriculum.
This term we will be focusing on ensuring that all children can access and are able to use Google classrooms to access and upload learning. This is of great importance at this moment in time but is also a recognised skill and platform used by many schools / colleges and professions in later life.
Should your child need to be absent from school due to illness or having covid-19 symptoms, we will support their learning using Google classrooms.
For those who have still not managed to get onto the virtual classroom, the children have been given a new password to log in. The class code is 3r63zvm.
These Knowledge Organisers have been introduced to the children and the organiser for our current topic 'The Ancient Maya' is below. On occasion, home learning will be to find out further information about a key fact on a knowledge organiser. We will also be using these as part of our remote learning offer, should a child or pod need to self-isolate.
- As part of our 'Covid-secure' guidelines, we need to ensure the classroom is well-ventilated. If your child is feeling the cold now the temperature has dropped (we will have the heating on!), please ensure they have a school jumper and/or a T-shirt/vest under their school shirt, and joggers for PE days (they can wear their shorts underneath, ready for PE if they would like).
- PE days are Monday and Thursday and the children are expected to wear their PE kit to school please, along with their school jumper. When it gets chilly, the children can wear joggers if they prefer.
Supporting your child at home
- Homework is reading, Spelling Shed and Times Table Rockstars daily, along with either English, maths or topic work, some of which will be set on Google classroom when we are all up and running. Homework will be set on a Friday and will be due in the following Friday. The children have all been given new logins for Spelling Shed, other logins remain the same.
