Year 5 - Beech and Elm



A warm welcome from the adults working across Beech and Elm this year. They are Mr Chapman, Mrs McVeigh, Mrs Rodriguez, Mrs Dawson, Mrs Reynolds, and Mrs Wenman. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss anything regarding your child.



Homework Expectations


Spellings will be set on a Friday and tested on a Friday.


Reading - We would like children to read at least 3 x a week at home.  We would like them to record this in their reading diaries themselves, or get a signature from someone at home. 


Times table practise is also now a requirement.

Children are tested on times tables every Friday- they are working at their own level of progress - and move on to a new level when they have achieved a high score in the current times table they are working on.  


This term's learning

Weekly Update 

Year 5 have been very busy with bikeability this week, and those who weren't doing it- have been super busy creating powerpoints about an inventor of their choice.  They have learnt how to animate a show, as well as record their voice and embed videos.  Between this, the children have begun to plan their discussion texts which they will write next week- where they discuss whether Daniel Holmes should accept Silver's offer of joining him at The Emporium, or should he decline.
