Welcome to our Year 5 team! Our team is made up of Mrs. Newnes, Mrs. Walsham and Mrs. Forrest in 5RN and Mr. Moody, Mrs. Burton, Mrs Nash and Mrs Forrest in 5M. Both classes share Mrs. Lowrie for part of the week to support our Pupil Premium children.
Year 5 are an enthusiastic and keen group of children ready and willing to learn. We have lots of positive learning experiences which we can't wait to share with you.
We have a range of thrilling topics and trips planned (when Covid allows) including a visit to the Leicester Space Centre; a trip to a Hindu Mandir; a trip to Stibbington to study rivers, culminating in a camping extravaganza at Ferry Meadows. Throughout our topics, please look out for any ways you can support your child with their learning. This could include trips to the library, souvenirs and photos from around the world, family links and experiences and, of course, supporting your child with their homework.
In Year 5 we encourage a love of reading and will be enjoying books by Roald Dahl, Michael Morpurgo, Marcus Sedgewick and many more. If you haven't experienced any of these authors now is the time to try!
Home learning comes in the form of Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and weekly maths online quizzes.
Google Classroom is used for additional learning opportunities. All of these online activities are accessed through the individual logins that the children have.
