5R - The Munchkins
Miss Rawnsley, Miss Berry and Miss Showemimo
Welcome to 5R!
In 5R we endeavor to engage with the Year 5 curriculum whilst encouraging resilience, self-management, reflection, resourcefulness and independence to allow us to underpin the school values which we abide by daily;
ENJOY, RESPECT, SUCCEED.
Children will have a reading book chosen by themselves appropriate to their reading level. Accompanying these books are their reading diaries, where you can write comments on their reading daily. Your child will also be given many opportunities throughout the week to read a variety of texts and will then undertake an online quiz to assess their understanding of the text.
On Wednesdays, Miss Holt and Miss Kausor will be teaching 5R.
In Year 5, children are expected to complete two pieces of homework a week. At the beginning of the year we will begin with spellings until your child has been provided with the CGP English and maths books. Each Friday, they will be provided with different page numbers in order to complete different tasks, these will also be uploaded to 5R's Class Dojo page. Homework should be returned on Wednesday.
Spellings and Times Tables
Every week, children will have a spelling and time table test on Friday morning. These will be provided for the children the previous Friday and practiced in school during the week.
PE will take place every Friday, Swimming will be on a Thursday morning.
Please make sure children have the correct PE kit ready for each week.
Children are provided with a piece of fruit every day in KS2. Instead, you may wish to send them with a healthy snack. We also encourage your child to bring a bottle of water to drink in class throughout the day.

Invader or Settlers? Our Anglo-Saxon speech
In Autumn 2, we have combined English, History and Computing to create one outcome. We have persuaded people to come to Anglo-Saxon Britain and have answered whether they were invaders or settlers. In computing we have been learning the skills needed to create a video production. We have put our skills to good use by using different camera angles and positions to record our speech ready for you to listen to below! Hopefully we have persuaded you...
This term, we are demonstrating sequences in Gymnastics by counter balancing with our partners.
