Welcome to Year 5

The Year 5 Staff

The Year 5 teachers are Ms Bobat in 5FB and Mr Dowling in 5MD. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Turley and Mrs Barton.  Mr Brown will be teaching in 5FB and Mrs Daniell in 5MD every other Thursday covering PPA, where they will be teaching the children Spanish and Computing!
 
This term is a geography led topic; We will be learning all about how mountains and volcanos are formed as well as why we have earthquakes and tsunamis! To enhance this topic, we have planned a fantastic workshop experience on the 20th of January. We will post some pictures on the school Facebook page soon after the event.
 
Children take home a school reading book, which they can change on a Monday and Thursday. Each week, children should aim to read their home reading book every week night. Children can also choose a class reading book from the class shelf and have opportunities to read in school every day. Children also have been given Times Tables Rock Star logins. Practising their times tables is part of their weekly homework expectation.
 
Spellings and homework will all be available online on DB Primary. Children have their own log ins and should check every weekday. DB Primary can be accessed on a laptop, tablet or mobile phone.
 
A new spelling rule is introduced on a Monday and various spelling activities in school are then completed in the week, ready for an application activity on Friday. English homework is also set on a Monday and Maths on a Tuesday.

Our class book this term

This is an exciting magical tale about an apprentice clock-maker, Karl, who must craft a new figure for the great clock in town - but he is exceedingly short on inspiration. When a mysterious little clockwork character appears from nowhere, Karl seems to have found the answer to his prayers. In fact, he is in for a terrible shock.
