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 2, 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 2 - key documents

This term we are learning about rivers and their formation both in the UK and around the world. Children will be using a variety of different geography resources including atlases and photographs to build up an understanding of the paths of rivers from their source to their mouth. In Science, we continue to learn about properties of materials, recapping previously learnt vocabulary and investigating which materials dissolve. We then move on to study reversible and irreversible changes. 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 the graphic novel The Arrival by Shaun Tann. Our whole class guided reading book is Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson. 

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