Our class name this year has been inspired by the love of Jeff Kinney’s all time famous “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” books. Jeff Kinney has been a favourite read of our class for several years. Not only do we love and respect his passion and brilliance with his words and illustrations, but we also find a lot of similar traits and characteristics to our class. His dedication in his work to inspire and instill the love of reading in everyone is a skill that Year 5 aims to achieve.
Year 5 is an important year as many final-year objectives are introduced before next year’s SATs. Although the curriculum does increase in complexity, we have placed a key focus on establishing a learning environment that is centred around your child’s wellbeing. The great variety of topics that the children study will excite and inspire them, ensuring Year 5 to be one of the most exciting years yet!
From becoming Doodlers, exploring and creating our own scribble bots to exploring the heights of space, from creating our own 3D sculptures inspired by Cai Guo-Qiang, to becoming musical technicians; there’s sure to be something to interest your child.
We have an exciting year ahead of us. The children are going to be learning and applying a range of new skills through our English, Maths and Science lessons along with continuing our Opening Worlds curriculum– for more subject-specific information please see our Curriculum Page.
The children will start each day with handwriting or a basic skills activity, followed by Reading Mastery sessions, Maths and English lessons each morning. PSHE, Science, Opening Worlds Computing, P4C and many more subjects will be taught in the afternoon.
PE, Reading Books and Homework.
PE will be delivered every Wednesday by Miss Gallagher and swimming will be every Thursday at Wavetree Aquatic Centre.
Homework will consist of a Maths, English and Spelling task and will be set on Google Classroom every Friday to be completed by Wednesday. If you are unable to Google Classroom, please let me know.
Reading books will be changed every Friday and are to be brought back Wednesday, even if books have not been finished. This is just for us to read any comments from Home Reading Journals to ensure we can keep track of your child's reading.
