Year 5

Trombone/Tenor Horn Lessons and Violin

 

This summer term pupils learning an instrument in their Whole Class Ensemble Tuition (WCET) lessons were due to be working on a selected repertoire of five pieces.

Suffolk Music Service have a fantastic bank of online resources to enable your children to keep playing their instrument and to join in with the pieces from home. These include: The Sky; The Greatest Showman; I’m a Believer; Hall of Fame and Let’s Dance. These will be published every week on their You Tube channel.

We have now found an easier and more streamlined way of sharing lessons with you!  

 In real terms this means that we now only need to share the relevant links with you once. You just need to save the link you need.  You can then visit the Play List as often as you would like to use the full bank of online WCET resources throughout this term.

 

There are five performance pieces which will be released to the YouTube channel on the following dates:

If you are learning a Brass instrument with Mr J McDowell. Please look for the Tenor horns and (Eb) Alto Trombones resources at this link; https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLP9ElpqnLu56hC2_cnAN91n7LnearGa9H.

 

If you are learning a Strings instrument with Mr M Kindred Peck. Please look for the Violin resources at this link; https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLP9ElpqnLu56D03MhiKJdP3MY95VruAAy.

 

Please be aware that videos will be available to view from 3pm every Friday.

As last week, we hope that you and your children like these videos, that they enjoy playing and sharing  at home. 

 Have fun and keep practising!

Year Five!  

Our teachers in Year Five are Miss Bufton and Mr Aldred.  Our TAs are Mrs Davis, Miss Bensley, Miss Williams and Mrs Jolly; our HLTA is Mrs Barker.  This term our topic will be "Ancient Egypt".  We will be doing lots of interesting learning around this topic, which will include learning about different aspects of every day life, the pharaohs and the pyramids!

 

 

 

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural in Year 5

  • Our Junior Road Safety Officers will be continuing their hard work on road safety this term and planning more competitions.
  • Our School Councillors will continue to represent us at fortnightly meetings to talk about any issues that arise.
  • Our Eco Committee members will continue to help us to care for our environment by organising our recycling and waste management.  New representatives will be voted for later this term.    
  • In PE lessons we are going to be working on our hockey skills and developing our fitness by doing a range of circuit activities. Both of these will help us to be the best that we can be. 

 

Clubs

Please be aware that if children sign up to one of our clubs, we expect them to attend every week. Any non-attendance will need to be reported to the office by a parent/carer. This is especially important to children in years 5 and 6 who have permission to walk by themselves. Thank you.

Year 5 Arithmetic
 

We are aware that some of the children have been finding the current arithmetic questions a little tricky so far. These questions are aimed at quizzing children on concepts taught across the whole of Year 5 and therefore, there may be some questions, which we have not covered in class so far. If children are finding certain concepts tricky, then they can chose to leave these questions until taught, parents can use the calculation policy to help demonstrate the best method to solve this particular question or they can find some time with their teacher to help in certain areas.

 

We have also added in some Year 4 arithmetic tests, which children could have a go at if they are finding the Year 5 ones too tricky at this moment in time.

Maths Reasoning Style Questions - Updated for Spring

60 Second Reads

 

You will find a range of 60 second reads, for children to complete as part of their homework, below this writing. Once you open the document you will find the 60 second read sheet and the answers should you wish to discuss them with your child. 

It is crucial, in Year 5, that children are secure with all their times tables. You could use these websites below to practise these.

Times Tables Rockstars

We have a competition running for all children in years 2-6, which aims to improve the children's times tables knowledge using the Times Tables Rockstars website.

 

Each week, the child with the highest correct answers in their class will be awarded with a certificate, which will be displayed on our Rockstars board. At the end of the week, they will be able to bring this home.

 

Maths and Spelling Shed

We have a fantastic new website to help children practise their maths skills and spellings in exciting new ways. Look out for updates from Parent Mail and in children's yellow logs soon.
