Welcome to Year 5
Mrs Chandler and Mrs March warmly welcome you to the year 5 class webpage. Check back often as we add more information to our page.
Hello! My name is Mrs. Chandler. I have been a teacher for 16 years and I have worked at many different types of schools in different settings. This is my first year at Edlesborough, but I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know the team and being part of the Edlesborough community. I am also the Key Stage two leader and the lead for English at the school.
I am blessed to have the wonderful Mrs March along side me. She brings extra warmth and humour to our classroom, in addition to her amazing singing and drama skills.
We are so happy to all be back together at school again after such a turbulent last term. The children are beginning to settle back into school life and enjoying learning in year 5. Please read our document to find out our learning goals for this half term.
What have we been Learning?
Useful Information and student wellbeing
Our PE day is on a Wednesday. Please come to school dressed in your PE kit.
It is important to bring a healthy snack to school to eat at break time as our lunch is later than usual.
Clear pencil cases and kindles are allowed. Please contact the office for further information.
2020 has been a testing year and many children are feeling in need of a bit of extra nurturing as they settle back into school life. We have erected a gazebo in our book corner / wellbeing area. This is a place for children to relax and enjoy books, but also take time out if needed. The children are definitely enjoying using this space already.
Home learning is an important part of education. We expect children to take increasing responsibility for their own learning in upper Key Stage 2 and encourage children to be proactive at home. Children should aim to read daily at home, either their school reading book or a text of their own choosing. If you are able to read with them, please ask them questions about the text to check their understanding. Making predictions, summarising chapters and drawing inferences from the text are all useful skills to practise too.
In the front of their reading diaries, children will find logon details for:
* Spelling Shed
* Times Tables Rockstars
* Purple Mash
Assignments will be set on each on these websites for children to complete, but they should also feel free to explore and see what they can discover.
