Welcome to Year 5 2021-22, Lemurs Class! 

This half term our topic is the Oceans and the Environment.  You will learn about the key geographical features including continents, oceans and how man has affected the world we live in today.

The value that we are concentrating on is self-regulation. Who will be champion? We need to continue to demonstrate our other values: focus, resilience, respect and independence to help us achieve our best. We are celebrating our in-class achievements using Class Dojo. As a class, we need to work together to achieve class stars.

Homework: Year 5 will be given spellings to learn and will be tested the following Friday. Times tables and related division facts need to be learnt to aid fluency. A menu of homework choices (that are cross-curricular) is given out. A minimum of 3 pieces are to be handed in over the half term along with a weekly English and Maths piece. I will run a homework club every Thursday and every other Tuesday lunch if anyone would prefer to complete it in school with my support

PE: We will have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday. PE kit needs to be in on these days but it is recommended that it stays in school all week. Correct kit consists of a white t-shirt, black or dark shorts / leggings / jogging bottoms and trainers or plimsolls. Longer hair needs to tied up and earrings removed or covered.

Many thanks,

Mr. Holland
