Kingfishers

Welcome to Class 5L!

Your teacher is called Miss Law and your teaching assistants are Mrs Bright and Miss Valentine. Every other Tuesday you will be taught by Ms Edwards.

You will have P.E. every Thursday and every other Tuesday.

 

The pupils in Year 5 are currently enjoying three weeks of daily swimming at Plymouth Life Centre. Please ensure that they have their swimming costume / trunks and a towel with them, along with a healthy snack for their return to school. 

 

Homework is sent home on a Thursday and needs to be handed in on Tuesday. There will be a range of activities to work through with your weekly spellings for your English homework! Learning your spellings is extremely important, as there is a spelling test every Friday.
 

The children have enjoyed reading Street Child and Oliver Twist already this year and have produced some fantastic writing based on these stories. In English they have also been looked at an overcoming the monster story called Beowulf, a tragic poem, The Highwayman and an Egyptian myth. They have created their own fantastic stories which most of them have taken home to show you! Their writing has shown great improvement this year and they have been able to build their resilience when writing a longer text. 

 

We are really impressed with Year 5 fancy writers and the children have been working hard to improve their handwriting which really is showing in their books! To add to this, we are working hard to build our resilience in our Maths learning - we are slowly becoming Maths Masters!  We complete the Times Tables challenge every Friday to try and travel all around the world. We all have our passports and are aiming to get it filled up with as many stickers from as many countries as possible! 

 

Take a look at the Curriculum pages to see some photos of us at work!

 

Please get in contact if you need any help or have any questions!

Homework

Pupils are set a piece of homework for English and Maths each week. Homework is set on Thursdays and due in on Tuesdays. The work will generally be linked to the learning that has taken place in class during the week so that the pupils have the opportunity to enhance their understanding of topics. Failure to hand in homework will result in pupils missing part of their Golden Time so that they are able to complete the tasks. ​
 
Reading​
Pupils are expected to read frequently at home. They should take home their Accelerated Reader book each evening. Any reading that takes place at home needs to be recorded in the purple Home Reading Diaries. These will also be used in school each day. Year 5 pupils are encouraged to use and record their own thoughts about their reading in their diaries and they are used as a form of communication between home and school.

 

Story Telling

The children have written their own Monster Stories based on the Beowulf! Come and take a look at our fantastic display!

Monster Brushes!

 

We were lucky enough to have people from Babcock come in to help us make our own Monster Brushes. We learnt to create an electrical circuit which powered the motor so that we could race them at the end!

Workhouse Day

Linking to our class story the Street Child we had a Victorian Workhouse day to help us imagine what life would be like for a Victorian child. We had to write with chalk on slate, answer to our surnames, only speak when spoken too and worst of all eat gruel. However after this exhausting day our teachers said 'you produced some fantastic writing!' Check out our display in school for more.
