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.

Weekly Update 

This week has been a very arty week. All children have learnt about the panting- The Great Wave by Hokusai. They have experimented with water colours, mixing to create different tones of colour and pattern. They have then created their own final version based on Hokusai's painting. Both classes have also enjoyed a trip to the library and have bought home a book to enjoy. The week ended well with a fantastic sports day. Well done all.
