Welcome to Hazel Class (Year 5)

Hello and welcome to Hazel 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.

Important information

Timestable Rockstars Homework

Children are asked to regularly practise 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 the class email address. 

Reading Books:

Books bags should be brought into school once a week. In Term 4, books will be changed on a Friday. 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 4 - key documents

This term we are learning about the deserts in geography. Children will be learning about both hot and cold deserts, their locations and features, as well as looking at several deserts in depth. They will also be going on a virtual fiedl trip to the Mojave desert in California. In Science, we will be learning about Earth and Space, building on our knowledge of forces from Term 3. The knowledge organisers 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 English text is Counting on Katherine by Helaine Becker, which links in with our science learning. Our whole class guided reading text is Cosmic by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. 

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