Welcome to Tiger Class (Year 5)

Hello and welcome to Tiger Class! This is the year where you enter Upper Key Stage 2. In this class I expect you to work hard, always try your best and rise to the challenge of being role models that our younger children will look up to. I also hope that we will laugh and have some fun along the way too!

Below is the curriculum plan in full for Year 5, which details the National Curriculum subjects and learning objectives we will be teaching this year.

Meet the staff

There are a number of staff who will be working in Tiger Class this year.

Important information

PE

PE will take place on a Wednesday and Thursday and will take place outside. Please send your child in in their school PE kits on Thursdays. They will wear their PE clothes all day. In line with school policy, earrings must be removed for PE lessons.

Spelling Homework

We have introduced a new spelling scheme to help us improve the standard of spelling across the school. Spellings will now be taught through investigations and a range of short focused activities which are all matched to the national curriculum. The children will be given five personal spellings (their focus five) and they are supported to use these in their written work in all subject areas. As soon as they have shown they are able to use a spelling, it is replaced with a new one. This new way of teaching spelling replaces the weekly whole class spelling test, weekly spelling lists will not, therefore, be sent home.

Timestable Rockstars Homework

Children are asked to regularly practice their times tables by using Timestable Rockstars online. Each child has access to Timestable Rockstars and can use this via the free, downloadable app, or via the website  - https://ttrockstars.com/ at home. If your child has forgotten their log in and password, please message through Class Dojo. 

Reading Books:

Books bags should be brought into school once a week. In Term 5, books will be changed on a Monday only. Parents need to sign their reading records regularly to show children are reading at home and so children can be moved up the reading rainbow and their reading achievements celebrated.

We actively encourage children to read a wide variety of materials as well as school reading books. If you are looking for some new books to try, I've recommended some (see below) and also added a reading 'tube map' which gives plenty of suggestions if you like a particular author.

Term 5 - key documents

This term we are studying rivers, focussing on how the water cycle, how rivers are formed and how they erode, transport and deposit material in the landscape. In science, we will be learning about life cyles, in particular focussing on comparing a number of different animal life cycles and sutdying the life cycle of some plants through taking cuttings. The knowledge organiser for these units of learning are below and cover, among other things, the key vocabulary children need to learn and understand. In English we will be continuing to develop our writing skills, learning key techniques to make our writing interesting and entertaining for the reader. Our class reading book is Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy.   

French - below is the key vocabulary list for this term's French topic Habitats. Children should regularly practice these words so they can become familiar with them. Practicing these will support their learning in school.
