Together Everyone Achieves More

Attendance

Welcome to Year 5

                                                                                                          Year 5 - where effort will always bring reward

 The upper key stage journey begins in Y5 where our school citizens are developed into motivated learners able to take charge of their learning environment

 Thoughout the learning, the core subjects of Mathematics, English and ICT link in to all the other areas.

Science, Humanities teach us about our world, while the Artsmark Gold principles underpin the creative subjects of Art, Music and Drama.

New languages, new perspectives and new physical achievments all add to the unique educational experiences in our multi sensory classroom.

 We really hope these few pages will give you a whistle-stop tour of our fantastic work and we look forward to working together for the rest of the year.

 

Best wishes from all in Y5

Learning Resources

Here are a few suggested learning resources that the children can access at home.

Maths

An online version of the numbers game from countdown. There is no timer so the children can practise using their number knowledge in a fun way.  https://nrich.maths.org/6499

A great resource which can help to improve the speed of calculations and knowledge of their times tables.                                                                . https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

This is a great resource for recapping your mathematical knowledge. Mr Brett's favourite page is the puzzle page.                                                                                     https://www.mathsisfun.com/index.htm

 

English

Reading

Reading eggs is a super website, you can use it on any device and it can really help develop comprehension skills.                                                     https://readingeggspress.co.uk/

 If you are ever stuck for what to read, or want to get into a new author, then this is a great website which allows you to read extracts from a range of authors.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               http://www.lovereading4kids.co.uk/
