Welcome to class 5JI!
Our class teacher is Mr Irving. If you have any questions or you would like to talk to him about anything, he is on the KS2 playground before and after school every day,
Class 5JI are working hard to be ‘the best we can be’. As well as working to maximise our potential, we are working on respect, feelings and value which play a big part in growing up.
Underpinning our vast curriculum we continue to extend our fluency and mastery of maths through building our knowledge and understanding of new maths concepts, whilst deepening our reasoning skills through team tasks and discussions. It is important that we build our fluency by knowing our tables well and be able to use written methods of calculation. (Remember to check out the Maths Calculation videos in the Maths section of the curriculum if you need to know how we do these!)
Don’t forget your PE kit! – white t-shirt, black shorts, trainers. Also our homework is given on Friday and collected the following Wednesday, when our weekly spelling test takes place.
To find out what we are learning about each half term, the Year 5 curriculum plans can be found here.
Each half term we have a learning reflection event to celebrate the work we have been doing. Our parents and carers are invited into school so that we can show them what we have been learning.
In Year 5, we also work on developing good learning habits. You can see them all by clicking on this link: GCPS Learning Habits
Important things to bring to school:
Water Bottles – children can bring their own water bottle into school and store it by the sink in the classroom. Please make sure that water bottles only have water inside.
Reading Folders – children need their reading book and reading diary in school every day.
Homework – Homework is sent home every Friday and needs to be completed and returned to school by Wednesday morning.
