Year 5 - Shark class

Welcome to Shark Class! 

It is important to reinforce school learning every week by completing the Mathletics and Purple Mash activities set.

 

Mathletics usually involves completing around 3 tasks, but children are encouraged to earn 1000 Mathletics points a week towards their certificates, so may choose other activities from the menu once the set tasks are finished.

 

Purple Mash will usually be a spelling quiz to use AFTER practising spellings daily on the Look Cover Write Check sheet on this class page of the school website.

 

There will often be other tasks unfinished on Purple Mash - these are optional.

Hello Sharks laugh

 

Miss Lyndley will be teaching Shark Class all day Monday, Wednesday and Friday plus Tuesday morning.

Mr. Warren will be teaching on Thursdays and Ms Elsworth on Tuesday afternoons.

 

 

PE Summer term 2021

Field PE: Monday

Playground PE: Friday

 

Remember to come to school wearing your PE kit on your PE days please (including the first day of the summer term).

 

Forest School - Every Wednesday

Remember to come to school wearing old clothes and bring waterproofs and wellies, as you may well get muddy! Please make sure you have shoes to change into after Forest School so you are wearing clean shoes in the classroom.

 

 

Throughout the summer term, remember to bring a change of shoes and a waterproof coat every day. Even though it is the summer term our good old British weather can be very changeable.

 

On PE days and Forest schools spare shoes are still needed so that muddy shoes are not worn in the classroom.  

 

Please bring extra layers as the windows and doors of the classroom will be open and it may feel cold in the classrooms especially for those sat near the outside door - layers are good. On uniform days, please bring a warm jumper that can go over the top of your uniform

 

Week beginning 10th May

 

English:

In English this week, we will continue to practise the Talk 4 Writing story of Perseus and Medusa.

We will also be focusing on grammar - punctuation (including speech), expanded noun phrases, relative clauses and homophones.

 

Maths:

In maths we will be continuing with multiplication,  multiplying a 3 digit number by a 2 digit number for example 4537 X 36.

 

We will also have the next times tables test this week. 

It is really important that the children continue to learn and practise their times tables at home as it really helps their maths skills. There is a difference between knowing the times tables and being able to work them out. The children should aim to know their times tables so they can recall them fast. TTRockstars is a great way to practise.

Spelling:

The National Curriculum for Years 5 and 6 expects children to be able to:

  • Use further prefixes and suffixes and understand the guidance for adding them (such as –able and –ible)
  • Spell some words with ‘silent’ letters (such as knight)
  • Continue to distinguish between homophones and other words which are often confused
  • Use knowledge of morphology and etymology in spelling
  • Use dictionaries to check the spelling and meaning of words
  • Use a thesaurus

By the end of Year 6, children are expected to understand and be able to meet the challenging spelling demands outlined in the National Curriculum. Children’s knowledge is assessed through a grammar, punctuation and spelling test that children sit in May as part of a week of national tests.

See: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/at-school/subject-guides/spelling-at-primary-school/

National Curriculum Spelling Lists: By the end of Year 6 pupils should be able to spell all of these words and be able to use them in their writing.
