Mr Drake - Year 5

Australasia Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

We have a very exciting time in Year 5.  

Our topics:  Earth and Space, The U.S.A., Rainforests, Chocolate , CSI STAVELEY and Anglo-Saxons.


Are you a Saxon or a Viking?


Every day
Please can your child have their planner and reading book in school every day. Feel free to use it as a means of talking to me or asking any questions.



Each day will include Literacy and Numeracy.


Please can all P.E. kits be brought in for the week. While we are timetabled to have P.E. on Monday and Friday, we also may have one off events.
Children work with Chesterfield FC in the morning on Mondays.
On Tuesday morning, some children have trumpts..



On a Thursday afternoon I have PPA, so the children will have Spanish with Mrs Del Solar and Music with Mrs Verdicchio.


Friday is Celebration Assembly day, so keep an eye out for a celebration text.
Friday will be Forest Schools once each term.
Watch out on the Calendar.
Reading Books
Your child can have their book changed any day of the week. They need to have their reading planner signed off to say they have finished their book. 
We expect your child to read each evening and their progress can be recorded in their reading record.
They also have spellings each week. There will be a quiz each Monday.
Children have a variety of projects which they can complete during the term. The expectation is that children put in about 30 minutes work a week on their projects.
We are using ReadWriteInc Spellings this year.
Look in the PLANNER for the spelling pattern being learnt.
If you want to pop in and see me to talk about your child, the best time would be Tuesday, Wednesday,  and Friday at 3.20. If it is urgent then you can, of course, pop in any time.
School Trip
We will be organising several trips during this year.
