Welcome to Year 5's Class Page
Mrs Stanford & Mrs Riley
We are excited about the year ahead and are looking forward to watching your children grow over the coming months. They have settled in well and are already working hard on lots of new topics.
Our PE is timetabled for Wednesday morning. Due to current Covid restrictions the children are allowed to come into school in their PE kit and remain in their kit for the rest of the day. As the weather gets colder, children are allowed to wear royal blue tracksuit pants or tights under their shorts.
Please try to encourage your child to read for at least 10 minutes each night and ensure that you sign their reading record to confirm that they have read. All books need to be transported to and from school in a reading bag to avoid damage.
Spellings are set each week on a Friday for a test the following week. Children are encouraged to practice their times tables also. All other homework is set via Doodle. The children should aim to stay within the green zone each week on all 4 programs - Doodle Maths, Doodle Spell, Doodle Tables and Doodle English.
Christmas Production - Straw and Order
The children have worked really hard practicing and performing their play, photos are on our English page
World Book Day 2020
The children enjoyed listening to the poem Night Mail by WH Auden and investigating the use of descriptive language within his work. We also read the Ice Cream Poem by Jack Prelutsky and wrote and performed our own versions of the poem. (Photos and videos are in our English section)
2019 - 2020

It's so nice to see the lovely work children have done whilst school is closed. Keep up the good work everyone!
World Book Day 2020
The children looked fabulous dressed up as their favourite characters and really enjoyed our drama activities (photos are on our English page)
Changing Horizons Primary School Event
Last week the children took part in a range of activities relating to the above event. Their main task was to design a 3 story building within a given price range. The children had great fun designing and building their models, although not all came in under budget!
Changing Horizons Primary Schools Event - Building skills for life and work
The children had a fantastic time at Liverpool Town Hall this week, finding out about the different skills needed in the workforce. They also had a chance to take part in some hands-on activities too! A great day had by all and their behaviour was excellent, so well done!

Roy Castle 50/50 Challenge
I am so proud of the children in Year 5 for all their hard work, raising funds for Roy Castle by organising and delivering a range of activities within school. They raised a total of £115.50!
Remembrance Day 2019
The children enjoyed browsing the resources brought in by our visitors and listening to their stories about the war. The children also took time to reflect the sacrifices made and took part in a minute silence at 11am.
Boo's Mobile Zoo Visit
The children had a great time petting and finding out about the animals shown.
Roy Castle 50/50 Enterprise Competition
The children have been very busy over the last couple of weeks finding out about our upcoming projects. Last week we were visited by Nick Hill from the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, giving us details of the exciting 50/50 Enterprise Competition we have entered. The aim is that the children are given a budget and have to come up with enterprising ways to raise funds for the charity. We will be starting our fundraising events at the end of this half term and then right through November and December. The children have already suggested some great ideas and are looking forward to raising as much money as they can.
Writing on the Wall - Poetry Competition and Workshop
We had a great time this week at our poetry workshop with Ciaran and Lyndsey (for photos see our English page). We found out about the competition and how if we are lucky enough to be selected, we will be going down to London to perform our poetry at the Criterion Theatre in the West End. The children worked really hard composing and performing their poetry.

"Somewhere inside all of us is the power to change the world." Roald Dahl
It is great to welcome your children into Year 5 especially as they all look so smart in their new uniforms. We are excited about the year ahead and are looking forward to introducing the new Year 5 Curriculum. The promotion of independent learning will be a focus for the children this year in preparation for year six.
Attendance and punctuality
It is important that your child has good attendance with the government requirements being 98%. It is also important that your child arrives on time as this minimises disruption in the classroom.
Please ensure they come to school, on time, everyday
Your child will participate in PE on a Tuesday. Please ensure they have the full kit, labelled for ease of identification. Please check pump sizes regularly as you know how fast they grow. As the day is subject to change or there may be additional opportunities for sports, children can leave their kits in school and take them home at half term, unless they need washing sooner.
It is important that you encourage your child to read for 10 minutes each night and remember to sign your child's reading record.
Homework will be set every Friday and is due to be handed in on a Tuesday. Children will be asked to learn new spellings and practice times tables each week. Timestable tests will take place every Tuesday and spelling tests will take place every Friday.
Year 4 & 5's Residential Stay at Crosby Hall Educational Trust (CHET) 2019
The children had a fantastic time at CHET, the sun shone, there was plenty of fun and laughter, lots of new experiences and many memories made.
The children in Year 5 were given the opportunity to take part in the 'Bikeability' cycle safety programme. The children were taught how to signal, start and stop, mount and dismount and most importantly how to ride their bikes safely. The children had a great time and all that took part were awarded their Level 1 or Level 2 certificates and badges. Well done!
