Welcome to the Class 5 page.

 

If you and your family need to quarantine or self-isolate during the coming months, please use the ideas and links below to continue learning at home:

 

Exercise: there are some great YouTube activities to help keep you fit and well. Enjoy being outdoors as much as you are allowed.

Spellings: work through the Year 5/6 word list. Practise 5 a week and use them in sentences (the list is on this webpage below).

English: write a diary entry for each day.

OR write a character description for one of the characters in the book you are reading.

Listen to David Walliams read you a story: https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/

Reading: this is essential and you can choose fiction, non-fiction, cartoons, magazines, comics, newspapers…the list is endless! Have at least 30 minutes reading a day.

Maths: use the daily learning activities on https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

You can also go onto Mathletics or TTRockStars for 30 minutes each day (you will need to own login details and passwords for this).

My name is Mrs Burrows and I am the Class 5 teacher. In the mornings we also have a trainee teacher, who supports children in Maths and English. There are two additional teachers who work in Class 5 at various times during the week - Mrs Butler and Mrs Fayd'herbe.

During the year we study a range of topics to ensure that there is wide curriculum coverage and we link as many areas as we can in a cross-curricular approach; here is a quick overview:

Autumn 1: Life Cycles - science based learning, including RSE (see policy). We read and study 'The Midnight Fox' by Betsy Byars

Autumn 2: Earth and Space - The book we read in English is 'Shine' by Jill Paton Walsh.

Spring 1: Chemical Chaos - learning about mixing and separating, and reversible and irreversible changes with a focus on food. We read 'The Piemakers' by Helen Cresswell.

Spring 2: Communications - learning about the science of sound. we also include a study of South Africa, past and present, and read 'Journey to Jo'burg' by Beverley Naidoo.

Summer 1: Water - a topic that covers science, local geography and history. We learn about a local Victorian engineer Thomas Hawkesley and read water stories from around the world.

Summer 2: Ancient Egypt - a historical study of Egypt and we read 'The Time Travelling Cat' by Julia Jarman.

Here are a few of the trips and activities we enjoy in Class 5
