Welcome to Year 5
Our teacher is Mrs Waterhouse. Mrs Jennings teaches us on a Wednesday all day and Thursday afternoon.
We are helped by Mrs Ashwin and Mrs Bennett.
Well done for a super start to the Autumn term to all of the children in Year 5. Please have a look at the curriculum document below to see what we will be learning about this half term.
Well done to all Year 5s who went on the Borwick residential last week. Everyone was absolutely fantastic and the children were a credit to the school. We had a fun filled two days including climbing, low ropes, canoeing, leaps of faith and then a day of caving offsite which was a first for all of us! Please see some of the photos below.

The children have produced some fantastic prints based on the work of William Morris.

Year 5 Beech Autumn 2 Curriculum Sheet
Welcome back to everyone in Year 5 Beech! You have made a fantastic start to your time in Year 5 and I have been very impressed with how well you have settled back into school.
Just a couple of things to remember - PE on a Wednesday and Swimming on a Friday. Maths and English homework will be given out on a Wednesday and handed in by the following Wednesday.
I am looking forward to a super term - learning about all things space related!
Look at the brilliant cushions we have made! We have worked very hard on our sewing skills. Well done Year 5!
World Book Day
We have had a lovely morning of 'book tasting' for World Book Day. We have gone around tables with lots of different books and thought about which ones we might like to read and recommended books to our friends. We also all look great dressed up!!
Year 5 Residential
Wow! What a brilliant couple of days we had at Borwick. It was a pleasure to take away such a fantastic group of children and we all had a brilliant time.
In two days we did:
We also ate lots of yummy food and even squeezed in a quick conga before bedtime!
It was lovely to see the children's confidence growing over the two days and every child tried new things and challenged themselves on different activities. They were all so encouraging and complimentary towards each other and many children commented that they enjoyed working with children that they don't always work with in school. A fantastic experience for children and staff - now to catch up on the sleep!
A huge thank you to Mr A, Mrs Chip and Mrs Barnes for giving up their time to come with us and thank you Mrs Bennett and Mr Bowden for coming to see us!
Mrs Waterhouse :)
A big welcome back to all the children in Year 5! It has been lovely to see you today and I am looking forward to a fantastic year! Here is some key information:
PE Kit will need to be worn on WEDNESDAYS.
We will be swimming on a FRIDAY.
English homework will be given out on a Monday and will need to be handed in by the following Monday.
Our first topic is space. The children are already really enthusiastic. If they have anything at home that they would like to bring in to share with the class about space that would be fantastic.
Maths homework - weekly homework is set on a Wednesday. Remember to ask if you need any extra help before you need to hand it in on the following Wednesday.
Times tables - Remember to keep learning your times tables. Focus on 1 or 2 each week.
Mr A and Mrs Barnes
During the last half term we have been learning about Space. We have written our own space stories, done paintings in the style of Peter Thorpe and written our own Moon poems. Take a look at the photos of our amazing pictures and have a read of some of our poems below.
Six Ways to Look at the Moon
Year 5 wrote some fabulous Moon Poems using metaphors and similes. Why not have a read of them!
I just wanted to say a huge well done to everyone in Year 5 for their fantastic work this half term. The children have all worked so hard. The work on space has been excellent - we have written sci-fi stories, learned about the solar system and created some wonderful space art. It has been a pleasure to see all the children settle back into school so well.
Next half term our topic will be The Victorians and I will post some more information on here after half term about some of the work that we are doing.
After half term we will also be having a focus on reading for pleasure. I have asked the children to think about the books that they like reading and the authors that they enjoy so that we can share this after half term. If you have any pictures of your child reading or if they would like to send in any pictures of what they are enjoying reading that would be fantastic - please just email them to me.
I hope you all have a fantastic half term break and thank you for all of your support.
