Year 5 2015 - 2016

Miss Halliday

The Year Five teachers are called Miss Halliday and Miss Loughton. Mrs Blanthorne and Mrs Williams also work in this classroom.

Year 5

Year 5 is an extremely exciting year. A chance for our children to develop their confidence, independence and cooperation through a wide range of activities. As a member of the Year 5 team children are given many opportunities to develop important life skills through Literacy and Numeracy. They are encouraged to do the very best they can at every opportunity and the range of experiences are ever increasing. Excellence is key to what we do. Whether children are inspired by a particular Text such as Millions or an exciting Geography project.  We are sure our children will find exciting topics such as Why should the Rainforest be important to us all? make their experience in year 5 a rewarding one.

Learning Environment:

Our Learning Environment is specifically organised to be rewarding and stimulating. Children are encouraged to take ownership of displays and areas so that they grow with them throughout the year. Literacy and Numeracy are obviously very important and the key skills to excel in these areas are highlighted on bright and colourful displays. Help is never far away and children find examples of best practice close to hand. We have working walls and writing resources, all of which are designed to help with our children's learning. We are certain the children will learn from their time with us and demonstrate their learning through high quality work.

Rules and Routines:

At the beginning of the year children are encouraged to contribute to our class rules. This runs alongside the schools Golden Rules and is expected to further improve the learning environment for all and in turn developing strategies for 'Behaviour for Learning'. Conversation and discussion are encouraged in Year 5 and is balanced with dedication to learn and succeed through quiet and independent work.        

What do we learn?

In Year 5 children cover a wide range of topics. Literacy and Numeracy play a huge part in everything they do. Children learn about many aspects and genre and grammar. In maths they will experience a wide and varied approach to all aspects of calculations and concepts. Through Science; they will learn about keeping healthy, properties of materials and the world around them through Challenge. In Science we will study life cycles of plants and animnals and in History a range topics too; such as The Maya Civilisation and Charles 1st.
