Welcome to Green Woodpeckers - Year 5!
Welcome to our page and to the Summer Term of learning. We have lots of exciting and creative opportunities ahead of us in Year 5 as well as new teachers to work with. We welcome Miss Prindible into the Year 5 classroom this term as we explore our new class text, 'Wolf Brother' by Michelle Paver and Mrs Green, our new Teaching assistant to the Greenwoodpeckers class.
We will be sharing with you how hard Year 5 are working and how well they are demonstrating our Reydon learning behaviours- so stayed tuned for photographs and updates this term.
Below, you will find our homework menu. It is expected that the children choose one item per week this half term to complete and that they return their work via Microsoft Teams, passwords for which were sent out prior to lockdown. (Should your child need a reminder of this, they can collect it from me in class.) Spelling rules and/or word lists will be generally handed out on a Wednesday and if not, a Thursday, to be learned for the following week's spelling quiz. I will continue to set MyMaths/Grammar Bug tasks bi-weekly and the children are encouraged to read and log on to TimesTable Rockstars too.
Thank you for your continued support. If you need to speak to one of us regarding your child, please allow more time for a time to be organised or response via the school office.
The Year 5 team,
Mrs Pigney and Mrs Green
Year 5 are taking part in GoTeam 44, the National Deaf Children's Society's new British Sign Language fundraiser. Year 5 have been learning signs and skills including: the alphabet, sign counting, food and drink, family, pets, the weather and more.
So far during the International Week of The Deaf (21st-27th September), Year 5 have taken part in a variety of tasks to showcase their new knowledge such as learning greetings and hopefully they have been sharing this with you at home.
