We focus on learning with reading at the heart of everything we do

Year 5

WELCOME TO YEAR 5

Hello everyone and welcome to our Year 5 page. 

The year 5 team - Mrs Proctor, Mrs Brown and Mrs Kirtlan can't wait to get going with the new academic year. It's going to be an interesting one! 

 

On our page you will find lots of information about upcoming events and we will share what we have been learning too. 

Should you need to carry out any learning from home, this is where you'll find everything you will need. 

 

As parents are not allowed to escort children around to the classroom at the moment, nor collect them from the classroom door after school, please contact me via Class Dojo, write a note in your child's planner or contact the school office if you need to talk to me for any reason. 

 

 

 THE YEAR 5 TEAM 

 

Mrs Proctor

Hello. I'm the Year 5 class teacher, Assistant Headteacher, Maths subject leader and SENDCo. I have been teaching for a very long time now and love my job.  I work really hard to make sure that we have fun with our learning and have lots of opportunities to do different things outside of the classroom too. I help everyone achieve their potential whilst having lots of fun too, I hope!

I am married and have 2 lovely young men called Jordan and James. I love spending time with my family and we all enjoy walking and camping, even in the pouring rain! We enjoy looking after rescue animals and have 2 cats, Ty and Milo and 4 guinea pigs who are super cute. To help me relax, I like to bake (anything involving chocolate) and I enjoy reading historical novels and children's books. I also love to visit different places across the country and particularly love Dorset and Cornwall.

 

Mrs Brown

Teaching Assistant / Rascals Childcare Manager

 

Hello, I am Mrs Brown and I support Mrs Proctor in year 5. Some of you may recognise me from the infant building where I work as Rascals childcare manager.  I love both of my roles at Rosedale Primary School and have worked here for almost 4 years. I love it!

At home I spend lots of time with my husband and two children, Connor and Aimee, enjoying cosy nights in and at the weekends we love to spend time exploring different places.

Just like Mrs Proctor and Mrs Kirtlan, I LOVE chocolate but I really enjoy cooking meals and love to eat at a variety of restaurants. My favourite foods are Italian and I hope to visit Italy one day...mainly for their pizza!

 

Mrs Kirtlan

Teaching assistant (1:1)

Hello, I'm Mrs Kirtlan and I work in Year 5 in the mornings. This photo is of me and my children when we were on holiday. We walked to the shop every morning to buy delicious fresh bread. Can you see the shop in the background?

I live with Mr Kirtlan, James, Thomas and our two cats, Kit and Kat. I enjoy going for walks in the woods or on the moors, and taking photos. My favourite colour is purple and I love chocolate! 

 

 

Our Autumn Term Curriculum will look like this:

We have 3 Key Questions to explore this term. 

 

HISTORY - Who influenced what Britain is like today?

GEOGRAPHY - Where in the world did the invaders come from?

SCIENCE - How do we make the right choices of materials when we make things?

REMINDERS

Once you have your reading book, make sure you bring it and your planner to

school every day. 

Bring your PE kit on a Monday and leave it at school. 

Don't forget your water bottle so you can keep hydrated.

Have a go on Times Tables Rockstars as often as you can. 

Practise your spellings, ready for your weekly test. Word lists will be put in planners

each week. 

There is a home learning menu above if you fancy being a bit more creative

with learning about our themes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Watch this space for what we've been up to in class. 

Week beginning 13th July

Our final theme of this academic year is

SUMMER! 

For the last time this year, I have planned a range of activities for you to keep you going right up to the end of term. 

I would love for you to send me any photos of anything that you have been doing. I'm hoping to see how Charlie's strawberries are coming on and the fabulous things that

Lily-Mae has planted too.

I'm very sad that we won't be able to say a proper goodbye to year 5 but I will be looking out for you as you start year 6. 

Keep safe, keep going (for just a little longer) and keep smiling! 

 

Ideas for your safety posters

Week beginning 6th July 

Our theme this week is LOOKING AFTER OUR WORLD. 

This is such an important subject to think about so I've suggested you decide what the focus is, what you are interested in. It might be plastic pollution, deforestation or even something as simple, but equally as important - litter! 

I hope you learn a lot this week. 

 

Keep Safe. Keep Going, Keep Smiling! 

 

Lots of children have been busy over the last few weeks.

We've all been very busy this week.

Hope you're all doing ok. Make sure you keep in touch via Class Dojo. I love to hear what you've all been doing. We have some fantastic gardeners, friends getting creative and some budding scientists too.

Don't forget to log on to our new MyMaths learning platform too for some more maths activities and games too. 

How are you getting on with spellings? Have you been practising and then being tested? Maybe this week you could look back at the words you've learned and test yourself to see what you have been remembered. 

Week Beginning 4th May 

 

It's a bit of a shorter week this week as we have a Bank Holiday on Friday where the country is commemorating VE Day. Hope you have some nice things planned for this special day.

Here are the ideas for activities this week. I've been super impressed with what you've been posting on Class Dojo. I love to see what you've been up to and it doesn't have to be school learning either!

Home Learning during School Closure

Message from Mrs Proctor

Whilst school is closed due to Coronavirus, this is where I will be posting suggestions for learning to be done at home. 

I will update this page weekly and try to share as many of your ideas and pieces of learning as you share with me to keep us all going. 

I'm going to put a suggested timetable of activities and learning opportunities on here but obviously you may not be able to do everything every day or you might be really interested in one particular thing and want to do a bit more of that instead. 

The timetable will have links to different websites and I'll attach powerpoints that might help you to understand some of the things we haven't covered in class, if you need it. 

 

I would love to hear from you too so don't forget to use Class Dojo to send your photos and any messages or questions. 

 

Please, please, please READ EVERY DAY.

Please, please, please PRACTICE YOUR TIMES TABLES - Don't forget to use the sheets from your pack (time yourself 3 minutes) and go online onto TTRockstars as often as you can. 

Please, please, please PRACTICE YOUR SPELLINGS. I'll assign a 2 Do on Purple Mash each week and put the powerpoint for that on here too. I'll attach a suggested list of spellings and maybe you can do a test at the end of the week? 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to Year 5!

 

Our teacher in Year 5 is Mrs Proctor.

Mrs Brown is our teaching assistant.

Don't forget to share what you've been up to. 

Just some things to share from our class (23rd - 27th March)

Hi everyone. I've now put together and attached the plan for the coming week. I know that we are all in different positions to be able to get things done but if we try to do as much as we can, we will still keep on with our learning.
If you have any questions or any links don't work, please let me know.
