Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to the Year 5 page.
This will be a little corner of the Internet that will show the world what Year 5 at HNPS are up to.
We will be using it to let the children show off their work and activities as well as providing useful information about ways that they can be supported at home.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mr Barwell, Miss Dabell, Miss Chadbund and Miss Jaques
We are going to be continuing with our 'History of Hucknall topic into the start of the Spring term 2019, with a focus on Hucknall during the Victorian period through to present day Hucknall and into the future. This topic will include looking at Victorian clothing, mining and inventions and our exciting visit to Blist's Hill Victorian Town.
Towards the end of the first half of Spring term we will start our new class text, 'The Secret World of Polly Flint' by Helen Cresswell.
Year 5's P.E. session is on a Monday afternoon. Please can you ensure your child has the correct P.E. kit with them for this lesson.
Mathletics homework runs alongside the work we do in class. We have seen that those children who have spent quality time on Mathletics have become more confident with their Mathematics work and have made very good progress. On Mathletics there are ways to support the children with their recall of multiplication facts and improve their mental maths.
Remember, 1000 points will earn them a bronze, silver or gold certificate.
The children are also expected to know their times tables and are tested weekly on these.
In Year 5, we encourage children to be involved in engaged reading time for a minimum of 30 minutes a day so that expected progress is made. We are challenging the children to read as many words as they can, with a push for reading 1 million words. This will earn them a book of their choice from Miss Bent.
It is important that children read at their correct level and work towards their next reading certificate.
It is of benefit to the children to share a book with an adult and is something we encourage.
In class we look at spelling patterns each week which children are to practise at home. Alongside these, children are to practise the Year 3, 4 and 5 Spellings which can be found in their organisers.
At the end of September, Year 5 went on a residential to Castleton. During our stay, we visited Treak Cliff Cavern and Eyam. We also completed lots of different activities from rocket building and gem panning to the lead mine experience and the 3 rocks walk along Mam Tor.
