Welcome to Year 5!
Welcome to Year 5 at Newhall Junior School. We are delighted to see all of the children back in school and eager to learn. We look forward to working with them and helping them to have a successful year.
The Year 5 team is made up of Miss Swain (5S), Mr Roper (5R), Miss Moore and Mrs Weaver and we are supported in class by Miss Harrison and Mrs Brown. We are always happy to hear from parents about their child's learning and we are always here to help.
Welcome to Autumn Term 2 in Year 5 at Newhall Community Junior School. We are delighted to see how well the children have settled back into school and we are looking forward to another exciting term.
This term we will be learning about Where do Rivers Come From? in Geography; Properties and Changes of Materials in Science; Scratch programming in ICT and Is The Christmas Story True? in RE. During Maths we will be covering statistics, multiplication, division and fractions and in English we will be working on poetry and fiction.
Both classes will have PE on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons with their class teacher. Please ensure that children come to school ready for PE on their PE day as no PE kits will be able to be stored in school. Children should be wearing their PE kit and have either removed their earrings or be able to take them out themselves.
Swimming starts for 5S on Thursday 23rd September.
Homework and Weekly Tests
Homework will be given out on a Friday via Teams and is due in on the following Wednesday by 9am. Spellings are given to children to glue into their reading diary each Friday and the spelling test is the following Friday. Remember, you can use Sir Linkalot (https://app.sirlinkalot.org/) and Spelling Shed (https://play.edshed.com/en-gb) to practise spellings. Club 99 is also every other Thursday and children have access to Times Table Rockstars (https://play.ttrockstars.com/) to aid them in developing a rapid recall of multiplication facts. Login details for all of these apps and websites can be found in your child’s reading diary.
In Year 5, we are looking forward to moving our learning forward by aiming for the stars!
