Home learning arrangements

 

 

All Year 5 children can access Google Classroom at home. They will need to sign in to their Google account with their St Andrew's Primary School staps e-mail - they then add their password. If they are working on a device that they haven't added their account on yet, click on 'add account'. They can then sign in.  Once they are signed in to their google account, they can click on the square of nine dots in the top right-hand corner. Google Classroom will show as one of the available app; it can also be downloaded as an app on an ipad. Once Google Classroom is accessed, home learning will appear on the 'stream' section.

 

There is a letter outlining the logistics of home learning on the class stream. Work will be added to the class stream  via assignments and in folders in due course. There isn't a set way to complete the work - work can be completed online on GoogleDocs and shared with me or it can be completed on paper, in books or even kept in folders. The work can be marked together with your child at home - we will endeavour to include answer sheets wherever possible. When we all return to school, all children can share work in class and we can celebrate all their successes!

 

Y5 children also have access to many websites and apps which they can use to further their learning in English and maths. Please see the links below:

Welcome to Year 5.

We are excited to begin our Autumn term with our topic 'Shhh, Walls Have Ears',
a World War 2 theme that will embark on a mission that covers local history links, war associated literature alongside the arts inspired and performed from that time period.

Furthermore, our new Year 5 pupils will soon embark on a host of 'Widening Horizons'
career based educational visits and workshops.

 

See our Autumn Curriculum Poster and Letter for further details.

 

Christmas festivities in Year 5!

Victory Party! 

To bring our topic to a close, Year 5 and 6 joined together for a VE Party! We had an indoor street party, and an afternoon full of singing, dancing, fun and cake!

Fire safety visit 

Today we were lucky enough to have a visit from some firefighters from Greenbank fire station. They talked to us about fire safety in the home, and things we should do and know to help us stay safe. We also learnt about the dangers caused by hoax calls and what to do if we ever find a fire. Here are some questions we’ve been asking, can you answer them all? See below for the answers! 

 

  • Should your home have a smoke alarm?
  • How often should you check your smoke alarm?
  • How do you check a smoke alarm?
  • How often should you change the batteries on a smoke alarm? 
  • Is it important to know your home postcode?
  • What should you do if you discover a fire? 
  • What should you do if a fire catches your clothing? 

 

Have you answered them all? Check the answer key below to see if you were right! 

 

  • Absolutely, yes! Your home MUST have at least one smoke alarm. If there are obstacles to this, let us know and we may be able to help. 
  • Each smoke alarm should be checked every week. The suggestion is to go with ‘Check it Tuesday’. 
  • You can check a smoke alarm by pressing the button (usually in the middle). 
  • The batteries of a smoke alarm should be changed every year. 
  • It’s really important to know your home postcode in case you ever need to call for help. This would enable the emergency services to get to you very quickly. 
  • If you discover a fire you should get to a safe place and call 999. Do not go back for belongings and do not attempt to fight the fire yourself. 
  •  If your clothing were to catch fire, you must follow these steps. First,stop. This prevents increased oxygen from further spreading the flames. Then cover your face to reduce smoke inhalation. Next drop to the floor and roll. Keep rolling until help arrives, or you are certain the fire is out.

Outdoor PE: Football Skills

This term, Year 5 has been fortunate to have a coach from Stoke Damerel College coming in to teach us football skills and tactics. So far they have learnt a range of warm up exercises, alongside a multitude of individual, partner and team ball control skills including: dribbling, passing, receiving and stopping together with pressure  and blocking techniques.

Maths: Place Value

During this Autumn term, we have had a big focus on Place Value in our Maths lessons. To consolidate our learning, in small groups, we had a go at creating a vast selection on 2, 3 and 4 digit values of Roman Numerals on the school playground
