Hi Year 5,
I hope you are all safe and well. It was lovely to catch up with you again last week on Zoom, we had fun on the scavenger hunt so I will have to think of more ideas for this week’s meeting (your parents will be emailed log in details).
Attached below is this weeks timetable (Week 13) together with the SPAG, Maths, English and Topic activities. This week in English there is a new Talk For Writing booklet ‘Wonderful Wizards’ and in Maths we are staying on the topic of percentages, decimals and fractions. On Friday (and in spelling) you will be concentrating on units of measurement. In Topic, we are continuing with the word of the week /where in the World and looking at Explorers together with Computing and Art/RE, so enjoy. If you do not have your SPAG log in, please email me and I can forward it to you.
Two weeks left now until the summer holidays! You have done amazingly with the home learning, not long to go now, keep going.
If you have any pictures or work that you would like to share, please do send them to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to catching up with you again, in the meantime, take care, stay safe and active.
At St Oswald’s we recognise the importance of keeping children active during these difficult times. The children won’t only benefit physically but it will support mental health. Our local School Games network and Active Derbyshire have been working together to create and publish a weekly programme of activities to support families over the next few weeks. The weekly activities will be sport themed and include golf, football, tennis, orienteering, athletics, cricket, gymnastics, boccia, netball and badminton. All activities have been developed so everyone can have ago using equipment found in the home and in whatever space you have available. Each week we will update the class pages with the new programme for that week.

Class page Year 5:
Hello, my name is Mrs Elliott and I would like to welcome you to our wonderful class, Year 5. I teach Year 5 each morning and Mrs Dawson teaches the class in the afternoon, along with Year 6. Each day we are joined by our fabulous Learning and Support Assistants: Mrs Clarke, who joins us on a Monday and Wednesday morning, Mrs Beresford, who is with us each morning and Mrs Rowlands each afternoon.
The Year 5 teaching team are very excited for the year ahead and we look forward to sharing lots of wonderful learning opportunities together. Please join us and explore our page throughout the year where you will find notices and photographs of our fantastic learning.
If you have any questions, I will be available briefly each morning and Mrs Dawson afterschool. However, if you would like to discuss any matter in private or in more detail then please do not hesitate to make an appointment.
Spellings: Your child will get a new set of spellings every Friday. Take some time to practise these with your child, little and often is best. We use lots of different techniques to learn our spellings in class – ‘pyramid words’ are always a popular choice!
Times Tables: Each week your child will have a times table to learn. Please ensure your child is practising these at home ready for their x table test on a FRIDAY. Remember to use the Times Table Rockstars app for support (the Arena will allow them to play against friends).
Homework: Your child will receive a piece of Maths and English homework each week in their CGP booklets. The children will write the pages that they need to complete in their reading record every Friday and it should be returned to school by the following THURSDAY so that I can mark it. Please support and encourage your child to do their homework as independently as they can, we are really striving for that independence and personal responsibility now we are Juniors. If you are unsure as to what homework your child needs to be doing please check with me in a morning. There is also a homework club for the pupils to access with Mrs Dawson on a Wednesday lunchtime.
Reading: Please encourage your child to read for at least 15 minutes EVERY NIGHT at home. Please record this in your child’s reading record. In our class we understand that it is important to have a ‘love for reading’. Therefore, if your child is not enjoying their book, please do let me know and they are more than welcome to change their book.
PE Days: We have PE on a Wednesday afternoon at the Leisure Centre. The PE Kit is required to be in school over the half term, however if you would prefer to wash it each week please make sure it is returned ready for their PE lesson on the Wednesday.
Please bring a healthy snack to school for breaktime.
Friday 6th March: Year 5 and 6 had an amazing time at QEGS, where they met the author Jon Mayhew and took part in Word Book Day workshops: author workshop, drama workshop, creative writing workshop and exploring workshop.
