Welcome to Parkdale Primary School Moving Forward, Learning Together

Year 5 – Oak & Maple

Welcome to Year 5's page! smiley

We are Team Maple and Team Oak!

 

Welcome back to Parkdale after the school holidays everyone! We really hope you've all had a FABULOUS summer holiday and are now feeling enthusiastic about the start of a new academic year- we certainly are! We've got a funfilled year ahead of learning and new experiences, which we are sure you'll enjoy.

 

Mrs Hinton is Team Maple's teacher and Mrs Dunne and Mrs Selby are Team Oak's teachers. Mrs Hallam is our year group teaching assistant. smiley

 

The days which we do PE are Tuesdays and Thursdays but it is important for children to have their PE kit in school everyday just incase we have a change of plan or do any extra sporting activities!

Just a few final reminders for Youlgreave

  • Children who have inhalers MUST bring 2 inhalers, both clearly labelled with their full name
  • Any medication which is needed (only medication which you’ve outlined on the EV4 form). Clearly label medication with your child’s name.

  • Inhalers & medication will be collected in the reception area when you arrive and placed in a box

  • Drinks bottle to refill

  • Healthy snacks are optional (there will be plenty of food at the hostel and the children won’t go hungry but your child may enjoy a light snack inbetween meals)

  • Your child MUST be at school for 7:30-7:35 on the day they are going to Youlgreave

  • If your child wishes to bring a teddy, please make sure it is not their favourite/most precious teddy, to prevent any upset if it gets lost!

  • Please refer to the kit list and parent handbook for a more comprehensive list (these are both on the website if you’ve misplaced them)

    Happy packing! Thank you, Mrs Hinton & the Y5 team J

What are Y5 learning this half term?

In this half term our Topic is 'Youlgreave & Carlton' and as you know, this will begin with our residential trip to Youlgreave, which is very exciting!

 Our English unit is 'Myths & Legends' and our main Reading focus is 'inferring meaning from a text'.

In Maths, we will be focusing on Number, in particular: place value, ordering & comparing numbers up to 7 digits, the four operations of mental and written calculations. Not forgetting, we'll continue to have a big focus on times tables and we expect all children to be practising at home, to aim for their gold badge no!

Our Science topic is 'Living Things & Their Habitats'. In Art we are going to be studying Andy Goldsworthy and exploring how natural objects can be used to create abstract and unique outcomes. In Y5 music lessons, children learn to play the ukulele! Please see our Topic web for more information on the other subjects smiley.

 

Our class book, which we will be reading and enjoying together is 'Children of Winter' by Berlie Doherty

How can you support your child at home?

Here are a few things which will really help to support your child's learning:

  • Listening to your child read at least 4 times a week
  • Practising spellings. Try look, cover & write. Your child could practise using and writing the word in sentences. Try a spelling scribble- your child can show you this!
  • Your child can use IXL regularly to independently practise their Maths skills.
  • Your child can use Read Theory independently to practise their Reading comprehension skills.
  • Your child will bring home 'Beat That' maths homework on a weekly basis.
  • Practising letter formation and neat handwriting always helps and when children improve their presentation they tend to feel more proud of their learning.

Our DT healthy pasta making day! What a great year group of chefs Y5 are! Delicious dishes created and tasted and a high level of creativity and teamwork demonstrated throughout! Well done Y5!

Our fun juggling workshop

We were lucky to be offered a free and enjoyable juggling workshop from Portakabin!

Y5 loved learning the skills of juggling and we discussed how important perseverance is when learning a new skill!

A little way to go before we become mastery at juggling but a great start from everyone!

 

Our Design Technology project! We are going to be designing our own healthy pasta dish very shortly. Today we did a taste test of the different vegetables which we could select for our pasta dish and also potential sauces!
