Year 5 Sycamore Class 2018 - 2019

Mr James

Welcome to Year 5!

Mr James, Mrs Ablett & Mrs Yates!

Welcome to year 5! I hope you find our class page useful and enjoy discovering all the new things we have learnt.


Spring Term 

Our working text, this half term is National Geographic, Natural Disasters. We will be using a combination of an information book and the website to locate our information.


Our science topic this half term, investigates and understands the work of famous naturalists. We shall be exploring the lives and theories of Charles Darwin, Steve Irwin, Steve Backshall, David Attenborough and Alexander Von Humbodlt. The children will investigate and learn about their discoveries and explore how these theories have impacted on humanity.


We have our new homework system in place! The system works on alternate weeks, on specific weeks the children will complete Mathletics tasks, set by myself, relating to the Maths we have worked on in class. On the other weeks, the children will be able to choose an activity from the 8 we have provided, to complete! These relate to our work in class, it could be creating an eBook, presentation, poem, or carrying out a Science investigation!



- Reading at home should be done as frequently as possible. Children should bring their reading book and reading record to school every day and take them home each night. I will be checking their reading logs.

-Bug Club is an exciting online reading resource with interesting books and reading activities. Your child knows their password and how to use the different resources on there.


- Mathletics is updated regularly with tasks. Children know their login username and passwords but can check with me. They should login and complete their assigned tasks before progressing on to Live Mathletics...let's see how many points we can get! Click on the logo to go there now!

We have started to use Times Table Rockstar!

A fantastic app/ website that lets us battle each other and test our times table knowledge, each child has been given their own individual login and can play individual games and try to beat their score or challenege others from all over the world in a safe environment. This has had a positive impact on our times table knowledge in school.



Our class need their Swimming kit in every Monday for swimming. We will be leaving early so make sure you are in on time.


- Brass and woodwind lessons will take place every Thursday. Please ensure your child is practising and bringing their instruments in on the correct day.

-Please make sure your child's school clothes and equipment is clearly labelled to avoid loss.  This includes jumpers, cardigans, PE kits, lunch bags and purses or any pencil cases brought into school.
