Year 5 2020 - 2021

Miss miller

Hello and welcome to our class page for: 

5M and 5L

In Year 5 this Year Miss Miller, Mr Wall and Miss.Vaz will be working together in 5M and Mr Largent and Miss Jones in class 5L.

We would like to give you all a warm welcome back to your learning, it was lovely to see you all, albeit very briefly! Unfortunately, as we’re sure you are aware; the government have made the decision to close schools at the current time. This means we will be moving to remote learning on Google Classroom. For information on how to access Google Classroom follow the link below:

https://support.google.com/edu/classroom/answer/6072460co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en   
(You will need to use your child's "@ashburymeadow" Email address and their password to access their class page.)


On this page, you will find information about current topics, news, updates regarding special events and Knowledge Organisers corresponding to the relevant topics for each term. As we have moved to remote learning, teachers will be posting daily work on Google Classroom which children must complete. These activities will reflect as closely as possible what children would be doing if they were in school. 


PE for year 5 pupils is on a Tuesday and pupils are expected to wear their PE kits to school on that day. This consists of trainers, t-shirt, school jumper and tracksuit bottoms, leggings or shorts. This will now be posted on Google Classroom as a remote learning activity.

 

Homework and spellings are set electronically for pupils on Friday using the Google classroom. Any pupils who cannot access Google classroom will have paper copies. Please remember pupils are expected to read for 30 minutes a day and with an adult at least once a week. All reading should be recorded in their reading records.


Pupils have been given their login details to access our school learning apps at home. They can use Lexia to revise their reading skills while Mathletics and Time Table Rockstars can be used to practise their mathematical skills and times tables. (Find attached instructions on how to access Lexia from home).


This half term we will be looking at: 

English: We will be reading Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman to help us produce a piece of writing focussed on creating tension. 

 

Maths: Our topic for maths will be looking at graphs. We will learn how to interpret data from tables and line graphs. We will be able to read and interpret information presented in a line graph where data is represented by more than one line. 


Geography: Investigating Biomes - In this topic we will explore the Earth's biomes, vegetation belts and climate zones, gathering information about ecosystems within each area. We will also explore lines of latitude and longitude and discover how to locate areas on the globe using these references. 

Science: Properties and changes of materials - In this topic we will explore the properties of materials and how they change under different circumstances. By the end of this topic we will devise our own experiment which proves or disproves a hypothesis about the properties of materials.


Art: We will be focussing on sculpture using inspiration from the work of Mancunian ceramicist - Ian Wild. We will use air drying clay and a range of techniques to produce a tile inspired by a type of fruit. 

 

Music: Year 5 will be taking part in an African drumming workshop every Thursday with our specialist percussion teacher.

We look forward to the year ahead with you and are confident you will enjoy Year 5!
