Welcome to Parkdale Primary School Moving Forward, Learning Together

Year 5 – Oak & Maple

Welcome to Year 5's page! smiley

We're Team Maple and Team Oak

Here you will find information about what is happening in Y5. Enjoy browsing!

We hope you've all had a fantastic and fun-filled summer holiday and your child is looking forward to the new academic year- we certainly are!

Below you'll find information related to Y5, which will continue to be updated in the first few weeks back to school in September.

'A Green Clean World'

Our whole school topic 'A Green Clean World' for the Autumn term is all about sustainable development and caring for our planet, encouraging and equipping our children to become more globally aware.

In Y5, we'll be focusing on the key objectives:

  • To understand the wider impact of human activity & climate change
  • To understand the dependency of humans on their environment

We'll be covering these key focuses by learning more about rainforests, the effects of deforestation and endangered animals. We're very excited about this topic!

 

Our class book for the Autumn term is 'The Last Wild' by Piers Torday

 

'The Last Wild' has many links to our topic 'A Green Clean World' and will hopefully be enjoyed by Team Oak and Maple!

We will enjoy reading 'The Last Wild' together as a class and some of our reading activities will be in response to the text and used for general comprehension discussion also.

If you would like your child to have their own copy to read in class, please feel free to purchase them a copy (it ranges from £2.99 for a used copy to £6.99 for a new copy), with their name marked inside.

 When do Y5 do PE?

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!

Updates on our community action project 'Helping Refugees'

We are SO proud of our Y5 children as they have set up their own food banks in two major supermarkets. Also, they have done 'flyering' in the local community to let people know about our DONATION DAY on Tuesday 18th June. To let people know about our DONATION DAY to help Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Refugee Forum, we wrote letters to parents of Parkdale. Also some of our Y5s did an assembly to KS1 and KS2 to raise awareness of how they can also make a difference!

Our new class book is called 'Welcome to Nowhere' By Elizabeth Laird.

This text is closely linked to our refugee project as it about a boy from Syria who becomes a refugee. Your child can bring in their own copy of the book if they would like to. 

Summer term in Y5

Our topics this term are 'Kings and Queens' and as one of our TED activities (Transform Enrichment Diploma) we are also doing on refugees and will be doing a project to support the local community.

Science

In Science, we have been learning about Forces and have carried out investigations, including designing parachutes for a sky diving company and creating our own balloon rockets! It was lots of fun and we learnt about forces in action.

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.
