Tokyo (Y5)

Welcome to Tokyo class!



Welcome to Year 5

I hope you have all had an enjoyable half-term holiday and are ready for term 4. I would like to welcome Miss Beavis to Year 5. Miss Beavis will be teaching the class during the term and will help me work with smaller groups.

Term 4 continues with Anglo Saxons and I would like to remind everyone that we have a trip to Butsers Ancient Farm at the end of the first week. This will include hands-on activities (many of them outside) and it is important the children are dressed in warm clothes and prepared for wet weather.


Best wishes

Mr Smith, Miss Beavis, 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.

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.




Group one French homework: Write a paragraph about yourself using the vocabulary we have learnt so far. To be handed in to Mrs Roberts by 28th February.
