Welcome to Parkdale Primary School Moving Forward, Learning Together

Year 5 – Oak & Maple

Welcome to Year 5, Oak and Maple's year group page! 

Welcome to the Summer term in Y5

We hope you've all had a great Easter break and are excited for the summer term.

This half term our History topic is 'Kings and Queens' and our Science topic is 'Materials and their properties'. We'll be continuing to read and complete our class book: Too Small to Fail and we also have a new reading challenge for this term too.

We'll be moving onto measurements, data handling, time and shape this term in Maths, whilst also continuing to consolidate our number skills, using written and mental methods. We're hoping to develop more confidence too in applying our maths skills to problem solving and real- life problems.

To continue to improve our writing, we'll be writing a range of text types and continuing to develop our Grammar and creative skills, using the theme 'Flanimals' and our topic 'Kings and Queens'.

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!

It's the Spring term! We have lots to look forward to this term and are excited to see Year 5 continue to grow & flourish!

Our topic for this term is Space, in which we will be learning all about the history of space whilst also building on our understanding of knowledge of the Solar System. We have a trip coming up to the Space Centre towards the end of the Spring term also, in which we will be learning more about the role of an astronaut, astronomy and taking part in practical activities to develop our understanding. What an exciting topic!

 

In Literacy we have a new class book....(drumroll)

Too Small to Fail by Morris Gleitzman

In our shared reading sessions, we will be enjoying reading our new book, whilst also developing our inference and deduction skills using our 8 reading strategies (scroll below to see what they are smiley)

Y5's residential trip to Youlgreave!

 

As part of our Autumn topic which is 'Contrasting Localities: Carlton & Youlgreave', last week we thoroughly enjoyed a few days in Youlgeave! Check out just a few of our many photo snaps below:

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- we can't wait! Our Literacy 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. Please see our Topic web for more information on the other subjects smiley.

Y5's classroom promise & expectations

As always, our team promises are work in conjunction with Parkdale school rules but we thought you may like to see what we decided as a team. We designed our own Emojiis to show we agree with our promises.

Our Values Tree is at the heart of what we do as learners & individuals...can you spot us climbing the tree & see our targets?

 

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.
  • Practising letter formation and neat handwriting always helps and when children improve their presentation they tend to feel more proud of their learning.

Reading Gives Your Imagination Wings!

Can you spot our Reading Journals?

We're proud of our personalised front covers!

In our Reading Journal books we record our understanding of the text we are studying and we take great pride these books.

 

What are Reading Sky Miles?

Can you spot our reading characters with wings?

In Y5 we are all aiming to 'fly through the sky' with our reading characters, which we have designed, to achieve reading miles. We get our 'Sky Miles' by reading regularly at home and each read is 1 mile on our reading chart.

 

What is our current class book?

 

Our Key Stage 2 and class book is called Pax by Sara Pennypacker.

We enjoy hearing this read by Mr Hillier on a Monday's assembly and we continue to enjoy the following events with our class. We're enjoying full immersing ourselves in the book and developing our inference and deduction skills by studying the text in more depth in our shared reading sessions.

 

The 8 Reading Strategies- what are they?

 

Can you spot the 8 reading strategies?

Maybe you could quiz your child on these when you next read together?

We are finding these really helpful in supporting our understanding of a text when reading.

 

Miss Thornhill, Mrs Dunne and Mrs Bass welcome you to Year 5's page!

 

We hope you all had a fabulous summer holiday and your child is raring to go for the academic year ahead- we certainly are!

We are really pleased with how all of the children have settled into Y5 and have been very keen to impress! Keep up the great work Y5! smiley

We have already noticed what a great team of learners we all are and we have VERY high hopes for everyone this year!

In Kid President's words 'Let's get our learn on!'
