Welcome to Year 5

The Year 5 Staff

The Year 5 teachers are Ms Bobat in 5FB and Mr Dowling in 5MD. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Turley and Mrs Barton.  Mrs Lowe will be teaching in 5FB and Mrs Daniels in 5MD every other Thursday covering PPA, where they will be teaching the children Spanish and Computing!

We hope you have had a restful summer and are ready for another exciting year! We are going to start with a very exciting topic about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings this term. This is a fantastic knowledge rich topic, where we will be exploring all about who they were and what impact they have had on our lives today!

This term, we will have swimming lessons. 5MD will be going every Tuesdays and 5FB will be going every Thursdays. You will need to make sure that you bring your swimming trunks/costumes, a towel and goggles, if needed, in a bag. We will be walking to GL1 and changing there. You will need a coat in case of rain!

Children take home a school reading book, which they can change on a Monday and Thursday. Each week, children should aim to read their home reading book every week night. Children can also choose a class reading book from the class shelf and have opportunities to read in school every day. Children also have been given Times Tables Rock Star logins. Practising their times tables is part of their weekly homework expectation.

Spellings and homework will all be available online on DB Primary. Children have their own log ins and should check every weekday. DB Primary can be accessed on a laptop, tablet or mobile phone.

A new spelling rule is introduced on a Monday and various spelling activities in school are then completed in the week, ready for an application activity on Friday. English homework is also set on a Monday and Maths on a Tuesday.

 

Our class book this term

This is a fantastic novel about Gunnar, who is the son of a Viking chieftain, living peacefully on his family steading with his mother, father and their people – until they are raided by Skuli and his Wolf Men, who raze his home to the ground and take his father's life. Gunnar swears an oath to avenge his father's death and save his mother from Skuli – but first he must run to save himself. Murderous raiders, hand to hand battles to the death, mythical flying wolves and a relentless sea journey to the Land of Fire and Ice... Unknown to Gunnar, his life has been foretold, and he finds he has a destiny greater than his own story.
