Year 5D 2022 - 2023

Hello everyone and welcome to Year 5D

Our teacher  is Mrs Devitt and Miss Clayton works in our class as well. 

Autumn Term Topics.

We are really excited about returning to learning and finding out more about the different topics we are studying. 

In History we will be learning about World War 2  and  in Geography we will be looking at renewable energy sources.  Our art and music links to History and we will be studying the artist Edward Ardizzone and listening to music fromt the War years.   In Science we are finding out about the properties and changes in materials  We will also be using our electricity knowledge from last term to power a fairground ride in DT.  Our RE question this term is "How do Christians prepare for Christmas?" and we will also be finding out about the Hindu faith through Diwali, asking "Is there one journey or many?"  During our PE lessons we will be creating gymnastic sequences as well as completing some outdoor /adventurous activities based on team building. Some of our class will go swimming at Hutton pool.  We will be looking at vector drawing during our Computing lessons and thinking about living in the friendships and relationships.  Our English lessons will be focussed on a War poetry and a non chronological report based on our Geography topic of renewable energies. In Maths we are starting off learning all about the 4 operations. 

PE and outdoor learning

Indoor PE is on a Tuesday and Outdoor PE is on Fridays.  All children need a PE kit ( black shorts, white t shirt, trainers and warm out door clothes), hair should be tied back and no earings worn.  Some children will also be swimming on a Tuesday at Hutton pool. ( swimming costume/trunks, towel, swimming hat, plastic bag for wet clothes)


Each day, children are expected to read for at least 20 minutes, practice their spellings and spend 5 minutes on TT Rockstars. 

Weekly - 1 piece of English and Maths plus a topic piece termly. 

Homework will usually be set on a Thursday and should be returned by the following Tuesday. Longer topic type tasks may be set from time to time. 

Class Dojo

The school is continuing to use the Class Dojo software as a reward system. Most parents are already signed up from last year but for those who aren't, a letter detailing how to sign up and access the app will be sent home with your child. Once downloaded, you will then be able to see how your child is getting on in class and have access to the message facility where I will post updates about the class.
