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 and maths 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.

Each half term we will be learning about a different topic. This half term our topic is Enough for Everyone. We will be thinking about what we need to survive and how we distribute resources. We will be thinking about the big question: Is there enough for everyone?

We are reading The Vanishing Trick by Jenni Sprangler. We are loving making connections between the different themes and characters from other books we have read.

In maths we will be working on fractions, decimals and percentages.

In science, we are learning about earth and space. The children have been thinking about whether the earth is flat or spherical and what our solar system consists of.

In RE our big question will be, ‘Why do we make sacrifices?” We will also be thinking about the lead up to Easter and exploring the Stations of the Cross through art.

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 Monday and Tuesday.

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.
