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), Miss Moore (5M) and Mr Roper (5R) and we are supported in class by Mrs Watson, Miss Guest and Mrs Marsh. We are always happy to hear from parents about their child's learning and we are always here to help.
Welcome to Spring Term 1 in Year 5 at Newhall Junior School. We are so proud of how well the children worked whilst the Year 5 bubble was closed before Christmas. We hope that you have had a wonderful Christmas break, enjoying lots of fun together.
This term we will be covering the following topics: What was life like during WW1? in History; Life Explorers in Science and Are Sikh stories still important today? in RE. During Maths, we will begin with written methods for multiplication and division and then move onto fractions and in Writing we will be looking at poetry and biographies.
All three classes will now have PE on a Friday afternoon 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.
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 on a Friday 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!
