St Anne's Catholic Primary School

"Love one another as I have loved you in our home, school and Parish family"

Friday 17th July 2020

 

Good morning, Year 5! How are we all today? This is your last day of lessons on the Year 5 class webpage. We look forward to welcoming you all back in September. In the meantime, have a wonderful break over the summer holidays and come back refreshed and ready to work in the autumn term! A big thank you to all of you that have sent in work and have kept in touch with us. We really have appreciated all your efforts.

 

Our final positive thought comes from Mary Poppins:

“In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and ‘snap’ the job’s a game.”

 

So, find the thing that you love to do, children, and your job will be like a fun game!

 

Below please find a document that will help you as you start to think about your new life in Year 6 from September. There is also an outline of what you can expect school life to be like when you return in the autumn term.

 

Your learning opportunities today include:

 

  • Your daily activities on Purple Mash and spag.com
  • For revision purposes A Maths Challenge Mat from the Spring Term that includes prime numbers and multiplication
  • Problem solving – The Mystery of the Festival Camping Chaos! A range of clues that will allow you to practise a range of mathematical skills
  • A reading test all about a tragic love story. Separate question booklet and answer booklet. Test yourself on a range of reading skills from inference and finding evidence in the text
  • Revision on the use of an array of punctuation from dashes, ellipsis and brackets for parenthesis. Good luck!

 

If you are interested, daily lessons will continue to be available on BBC daily bitesize up until Friday 24th July. Click on the link below for these lessons:

Have a great summer holiday!

Our positive thought for the day comes from Jesus:

 

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this, all people will know that you are MY disciples, if you love one another.”

Good morning, Year 5! This is the final week before our summer holidays, but we have lots of work to do before Friday!

 

Our positive thought for the day comes from Belle in Beauty and The Beast:

“It’s not until you lose everything that you truly appreciate everything.”

Year 5 Team

Year 5

 Dear parents/carers,

 ‘WELCOME’ from the Year 5 team! We intend to keep you well informed about all of the exciting experiences and learning that we will be encountering on our journey as we venture into Year 5!                                                                                                               

At the bottom of this page you will find a link to a curriculum map that will inform you of some of the things that we will do in the Autumn term. There is some extra information below about Year 5.

As we begin an important school year, I would like to offer some reminders and classroom routines that will enable us to make this a positive and rewarding year.

  1. Please be sure to clearly mark all of your child’s belongings with his/her name for safety and quick identification.
  2. In Year 5 the expectation is that they read for 15 to 20 minutes. Please could you remind your child that they need to bring their book in with them everyday.
  3. Homework will be given out every Friday and is to be completed and returned each Wednesday. We value all comments you make in their homework book.
  4. Year 5 have PE on a Wednesday. However, the children should have their PE kit in school every day because other opportunities for active sports arise throughout the year.
  5. If your child has your permission to go home with a friend/ sibling or alone, please inform us. This is to prevent confusion and ensure the safety of the children.

 

We look forward to working with you and your child. Together we can make a difference! You can help by sending us well-rested children with full tummies and a hug and a kiss still fresh on their minds. This sets the stage for a lovely day.

We truly value your support in making your child’s time in Year 5 not only a super year of learning, but also create memories that they will cherish. Thank you in advance for your continuing support.

Please feel free to contact us at any time if there is a question or situation you would like to discuss.

Yours Sincerely

Mrs Torley and Mrs Tubman
