Welcome to Year 5! Your class teacher is Miss Ames and the class is supported by Mr Bell. 

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to Year 5! We hope you have all had a fun-filled summer holiday and are looking forward to the forthcoming academic year as much as we are. We wanted to take this opportunity to welcome you back and give you some information about the year ahead.

Your child will be given two reading books to read with you at home this year. Please make sure that their reading diary is signed weekly and that children are reading daily.

Homework will be sent home each Thursday and will consist of literacy, maths and topic work to consolidate the learning from that week, along with the answer sheets. The homework can be emailed in to us at year5@st-annes-pri.mancheser.sch.uk. You can also follow us on Twitter @StAnnesAncoats where we will post updates of our learning. The first homework will be sent out next week.

Each half term we will be learning about a different topic. This half term our topics will be ‘Properties of Materials’ and ‘Manchester’. If your children are visiting places of interest in Manchester with you at home,  you can send us some photos at the above email address or tell us about your adventures in an email/in class.

In maths we will be working on numbers and place value. The children will be identifying, ordering and comparing numbers up to 1,000,000. We will be revisiting Roman Numerals and counting forwards and backwards, including negative numbers. The children will be practising rounding to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10,000 and multiplying and dividing numbers by 10, 100 and 1000.

In RE our big question will be, ‘Who am I?’ We will be thinking lots about our talents, the qualities that drive these talents and what makes ourselves so special to the people in our families and also to God.

Some of our PE lessons will take place outside this term and we would appreciate it if you could bring your child into school wearing their kit on their PE days. PE kit consists of black shorts, white t-shirt and trainers. PE days are Wednesdays and Fridays.

Please ensure that your contact details and medical forms are up to date with the office and that we have signed permission slips for your child to be featured on our website and/or twitter.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff who will be happy to make an appointment.

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Ames and Mr Bell.

Macmillan coffee and cake afternoon –
We had a fabulous time welcoming our Y5 families into school to raise money for Macmillan. So wonderful to be able to come together again for such a worthy cause.
