Year 5 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Year 5
Please see 'News Items' for weekly updates posted every Friday.
This week's book of the week is - ‘Little People, BIG DREAMS series of books’ by Various (recommended by Laurie).
Dear Year 5 2021/22
We are this year’s Year 5 class and these are some of the things we thought it would be useful for you to know for your year ahead.
- There is a nice positive environment in class and Mr Campion expected us to be kind and considerate to each other. He talked about this a lot!
- We learned some really interesting topics, like Ancient Greece, World War II, South America and Rivers.
- The work gets more challenging, but it will be fun and interesting.
- Sadly, we didn’t get to go this year, but Year 5 usually go to Burwardsley for a residential.
- We have Star of the Day, and we earn free time during the week which we can claim on Friday.
- You will get lots of chances to share your work in class, and lots of it goes up on display.
- Mr Campion chooses one piece of writing a week to go on our writing wall and discusses why it is a good piece of work.
- You will need to bring your instrument into school each Wednesday for Wider Opportunities.
- We study English and maths every morning and we have mental arithmetic lessons each Tuesday morning.
- There are a number of great adults who also help you, like Mrs Livingston and Mrs Fairhurst. Mrs Riddell teaches the class on a Wednesday afternoon.
- You get homework on Monday, and it needs to be handed in the following Monday.
- You have your weekly spelling test on Friday.
- We have used some great books in our writing lessons and guided reading.
- Mr Campion asks for book recommendations each week. These go up on display and on the class webpage.
We hope you really enjoy your year next year. Good luck in Year 5!
