Tokyo (Y5)

Welcome to Tokyo class!



Welcome to Year 5

Happy New Year! I hope you all have had an enjoyable Christmas and are set for 2018.


Term 3 sees the arrival of Anglo Saxons, a topic that will last for the next two terms.  We are very fortunate to have the Gloucester Rugby Community Charity teaching a six-week programme of fun engaging skills-based learning using cross-curricular content focusing on the 5 ways to Wellbeing.


Best wishes

Mr Smith, Mrs Roberts, Miss Norton, Mrs Shippey and Mrs Harris


Year 5 Blog - Terrific Tokyo

Year 5 are making a class blog and it can be found by clicking on this link

The blog will be a place where children can post examples of work, complete the 100 Word Challenge homework and discuss ideas and thoughts linked to learning in Year 5. Parents are encouraged to comment, but we ask that you follow the Blogging guidelines.


Year 5 Residential Powerpoint

You will find the PowerPoint Mr Soutar presented at the residential meeting, further down the page.


Spellings Rules 1-8

This year the children will be learning their year 5 spellings as part of their homework. The children will learn each Spelling Rule Set over a two week period in class. They should also be learning these at home. At the start of a spelling rule unit the children will be tested on the spellings linked to it. If the children show that they are confident with these spellings then they will be given an additional list.  At the end of 2 weeks the children will be tested on the spellings.
