Welcome to Year 5!
Mr LeLuan is your teacher this academic year and will be assisted by Mrs Talati and Mrs Turner. Miss Patel will be teaching the class on Monday and Wednesday afternoons.
This web page is to help with your learning and please use the categories below to access useful websites, games and to see some of our great work.
English, Maths and Reading will be taught daily as part of a full curriculum. To see what your children are doing in class please take a look at the topic web part of the class page.
Children will be responsible for selecting their own reading books and writing the titles in their reading records. Parents and guardians, please sign and date to show that your child has read at home. This will be checked and signed daily.
Children are expected to use TT Rockstars from home (if they have access). This has been a great success and children throughout the school have made good progress in learning their times tables.
Yoga will be on Tuesday afternoons and P.E. will take place on Thursday mornings, the correct kits should be in school on these days. PE kit needs to remain at school and taken home every half term for washing unless it has become very dirty.
Weekly homework will be set on a Thursday. This will need to be completed online. If people have no access to the internet a paper version will be provided. Weekly spellings will be handed out on a Thursday and tested on the following Thursday.
If you need to contact me about your child please use the following email EMYear5@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk.
Autumn Term 1.
Maths: The children will be focusing on place value and partitioning numbers to help solve multiplication and addition problems. They will also learn about the relationship between multiplication and division and how to apply these skills to pencil and paper procedures. They will be tested on their mental arithmetic and times tables knowledge every week. Homework will now be carried out on google classroom and this will be monitored weekly.
English: This term the children will be learning to write in a range of genres, such as diary entries, narrative writing, letters, newspaper articles, exploring characters and recounts to name a few. The English lessons will be planned and taught using a central text. The children will follow a spelling scheme through the year and spelling words will come home once a week on Thursday to be tested on the following Thursday. It is imperative that children learn these words in order to achieve age-related expectations within their independent writing. Children are encouraged to read daily and will take part in a group guided reading sessions. There is a selection of reading books, including ‘challenging reads’, in the classroom. The children are invited to bring in appropriate reading books from home if they choose to do so. We would encourage children to use their home school diaries to record their reading activity.
