Poplar class

 

Your class teacher is Miss Wetherill, supported by Miss Myers.

Here you will find useful information about our class, as well as photographs of what we have been doing in school.       

PE Days

PE days are Mondays and Thursdays.

We will be aiming to run the mile on Thursdays to avoid confusion as to when the children need their PE kits.

 

Planners

Signed by parents over the weekend and by the class teacher on a Tuesday each week.

Please feel free to use your child's planner as a means of communication if you would like to pass on any messages.

You will also find my school email in their planner if you would prefer to use that.

 

Homework

Homework will continue to be given out on a Friday, to be completed by the following Wednesday. If your child is unable to complete this at home they will have the chance to do so in school on Monday and Tuesdays lunchtimes at homework club. 

 

Children in Year 5 are expected to spend 1 hour on their homework each week. This will consist of spelling practise and a Maths homework relating to the work covered in class that week. It is expected that your child reads for at least 10 minutes each night as part of their homework from school. It would be really beneficial if you could encourage your child to do this.

 

Reading

Children are welcome to take books from the school library as well as our class library and read them at home.

Bug Club is now up and running and login details can be found in children's planners. We will be using Bug Club in guided reading sessions, and children will occasionally be set grammar and spelling activities to complete as homework.

 

Spellings

Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Wednesday, after your child has had chance to practise over the weekend. 

 

Predominantly, we will be practising spellings from the year 5/6 N.C spelling list. The full list of year 3/4 and 5/6 words can be found on the spelling platform of the school website. All children should have access to this, login details can be found in their school planners.

For the past three years, as part of a whole school effort, each class has taken part in a weekly 1 mile run.

The benefits resulting from this have been fantastic! Not only has it been evident that children have been getting fitter, and therefore healthier, but it is also clear that they are becoming more confident, with children applying their new found determination to their work ethic in the classroom. We are keen to continue running at least once a week and ask you to please ensure that your child has appropriate footwear in school so that they are able to take part.

 

 

Autumn 2

 

 

Autumn 1

 

 As part of our space topic in Autumn 1, Year 5 pupils worked in groups to investigate the movements of the Earth, Sun and Moon. We made mini models using paper plates and split pins that helped us to learn about the difference between rotating and orbiting. Photos to follow...
