Welcome to Year 5!
This year the class teachers are Mrs Redden (5 Dali), Miss Conroy (5 Gaudi) and Miss Holmes (5 Escher). Mrs Beirne, Mrs Bedford, Mrs Gadd, Mrs Watts, Mrs Bayes and Mrs O'Hanlon will also support learning across the year group. During the course of Year 5 we will continue to build on the children's independence and resilience skills and also move their learning forward by using our growth mindsets.

Gaudi style mosaics

In 5 Gaudi this term, we have been recreating mosaics in the style of our class artist, Antoni Gaudi.
We learnt some interesting things about his life - for example about the criticism he faced and about the obscure places in Barcelona that you can find his architecture!
The children worked in groups to design a mosaic masterpiece inspired by nature - like Gaudi was. We then carefully laid out the mosaics we'd need, cut them to size, and glued them down. The next stage was to put grout in between each tile to secure them into place, then clean the tiles to make sure the colours came through.
Everybody made fantastic mosaic masterpieces!

Helping at Home
In Year 5, the children are set weekly spellings on a Monday which are tested on a Friday; on Thursday we also set an additional piece of home learning which is due on a Tuesday- this term we will be focusing particularly on our timestables. It is expected that children use Timestables Rockstars and RM Maths each week; they have their own passwords to access these activities.
In addition to this, please continue to support your child with their reading by regularly reading to them, listening to them read and asking them questions about their reading.
Although many children read fluently and independently at this age, in order to build higher level comprehension skills it is important that children are given the opportunity to discuss what they have read and share their opinions about the texts they read.
Children will visit the school library each week – 5 Dali on Monday, 5 Escher on Wednesday and 5 Gaudi on Friday.
PE is each Tuesday afternoon. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school (clearly labelled) with trainers. In the colder months the children will need appropriate clothing for the cold weather.
