Welcome back to school Year 5! We are so excited to be back in a new school year and we hope you are too! Mrs. Stannard really enjoyed catching up with many of you on our transition days before the summer holidays and Mrs. Greenhall loved getting to know you a little better. We look forward to seeing the rest of you – we are going to have a fabulous year!
Things to remember…
Many things are still the same but there are a few changes so read the following list to make sure you don’t forget anything. These are the things that you need to remember…
Come to school on Wednesday 2nd September in your usual school uniform.
Please bring a reading book from home.
You will need to bring your own snack.
You must bring your own NAMED water bottle to keep you hydrated.
Don’t forget your packed lunch – unless you are having a school dinner of course!
It would help if you brought your own pencil case filled with anything you might need, especially: pencils, a black writing pen (not biro), coloured pencils, glue stick, whiteboard pens, ruler, rubber, pencil sharpener. (Fine liners are always useful to have too!) All equipment must stay in school though.
If you don’t have some of this equipment, don’t worry – we have everything in class, it will just minimise movement around the room if you have your very own supply!
Please remember to come to school in your OUTDOOR PE KIT on the days we have PE. You will have PE on a Tuesday and Friday. You do not need to bring a change of clothes as you will stay in your kit all day. This is a bit different, isn’t it? Remember, your outdoor PE kit is tracksuit bottoms, Pikemere sports shirt, Pikemere hoody and trainers.
And finally…..bring a smile!!!
What will we be doing when we come back?
This is the book the whole school will be studying for the first few weeks. It’s great and we really hope you enjoy it. We have planned lots of interesting activities for you, centred around this book. Have a look at the video below to give you an idea of what to expect…
For even more information, we have attached the curriculum plan for the Autumn term. It’s going to be a busy one, but lots of fun!
Here is a list of books which are recommended for 9-10 year olds. Have you read any of them? Which ones would you like to read?
Click here to find more details about these books.
Here is the Year 5/6 spelling list. It would really help you to learn how to read and particularly how to spell all of these words. Do you know what they mean? Can you put them into a sentence to show you understand?
Because you missed half of Year 4, here is the Year 3 and 4 spelling list below.
Here are some maths resources that you may find useful in the Autumn term. We will be concentrating on place value for the first few weeks but don’t forget to keep practicing your timetables as these are in every area of mathematics!
Remember, your logins and passwords for the websites below are stuck into your homework books and planners!
Below are some websites you may find useful for our Autumn term topics. These will be updated as we progress through the term so make sure you keep checking this page!
You are very lucky that your two teachers have such diverse interests! Mrs. Stannard loves books and art and Mrs. Greenhall loves history and geography and the natural world. We recommend this book for learning all about the history of mankind. It is written for children your age but is equally interesting for adults. Maybe you could enjoy it with a member of your family?
