5IB

Class Teacher: Miss Bryant 

 

LSA: Mrs Kelly 

Welcome to 5IBs class page.

The children from 5IB have had a brilliant start to their year and are already working hard. The children show real enthusiasm for their learning and I am really looking forward to seeing our learning journey unfold this academic year.

In English, the children have been working on warning stories and developing their setting description skills. They have been using dictionaries and thesauruses (and colour thesauruses) to improve their writing.

 

In maths, the children have been working on developing their place value knowledge and are beginning to work on the four operations.

 

 

Below is some key information that you may find useful.

 

Reading Books

Please ensure you record any reading that takes place at home with a simple comment inside your child’s Reading Record. Children will be awarded with a reading bead every time their Reading Record is signed. We currently have three children that have over 20 reading beads! If the children read certain books from our reading recommendation list, they earn a sticker and 5 house points. Six children have read a book from the list, a good start 5IB!

 

 

Spellings

Spellings are handed out on a Friday ready for a test the following Friday. Please make sure the children are practising their spellings every week. Children can practise their spellings in any way they like – we have sent home a list of suggested techniques (some are quite fun!) to help the children learn the weekly spellings.

 


Times Tables
These are also handed out every Friday. At the start of the year, all children in year 5 started on their 3 times tables. It is essential the children practise their times tables every week ready for their test on the following Friday. When the children have answered all 60 times tables questions correctly they can then move up to the next level. We currently have 2 children on their 6 times tables! I have attached a couple of recommended websites for children to use to help with learning their times tables below.

Some of the children in 5IB have been taking a conscientious attitude toward their own learning and have been writing some stories at home, a few have read their stories out to the class at the end of the day.

In science this week, 5IB were learning about water resistance and the benefits a streamlined design has on an object. Their task was to make their own boats that will be tested next week.
