Moulton School

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Miss Latham and I (Miss Fleming) would like to welcome you to our class page, where you will find lots of information about life in Year 5 at Moulton School.

Communication

Class Dojo is a fantastic tool which enables you to be kept up-to-date with what your child has been doing in school all day. You can also keep track of your child's behaviour in school by checking how many Dojo points they have received that day. I will communicate reminders through Class Story so it is really useful to sign up for it if you haven't already done so. There is also a great private messaging tool if you have any questions or concerns.

English

 You can keep up to date with the children's learning on Class Dojo. Each half term, we will exploring a new high quality text.

Through the use of the texts, the children will be developing a secure understanding of grammar, punctuation and spelling expectations in Year 5.

The children will have weekly spelling tests (Tuesday) so please ensure that they are learning these at home.  

Reading

In Year 5, the children start Accelerated Reader, which promotes a love of reading for pleasure.

It is essential that the children are reading at least 30 minutes a day.

Maths 

You can keep up to date with the children's Maths learning on Class Dojo.

It is very important that the children are practising their times tables weekly on Times Table Rockstars.

PE 

Year 5's PE day is on Tuesday so the children need to make sure that they come to school in their jogging bottoms/shorts and trainers.

 Music

Music lessons will be every Tuesday so please ensure musical instruments come into school each week once they have been given out. Our music teachers recommend that the children should practise for at least 10 minutes each night to make good progress.

History/Geography

Each term, the children will be learning about different topics. Here are the Year 5 units for this academic year: 

  • Autumn - What is so special about the USA?
  • Spring - Who were the Anglo-Saxons and what were their links to Christianity?
  • Summer - Were the Vikings always victorious and vicious?
