Welcome to Year 5

A warm welcome to year 5H! My name is Mrs Hussain and I am the year 5 class teacher. I am really looking forward to the academic year and teaching all the children in year 5.


Spring term

This term Year 5 are on a mission to create a Polar survival kit. Year 5 were sent an email from subzero about a crash, they required our help to create survival kits so they could have a safe return. As a result, we will be working hard exploring the Polar regions through their topic Pole to Pole. 

In geography, we will be investigating why the Polar regions have extreme cold climates and locating the Polar regions on a map. We will be investigating the Titanic and what caused it to sink. In maths, we will be measuring angles, area and perimeter of icebergs and pack ice.  In art, we will be carving famous Inuit pictures in bars of soap. In science, we will be looking at polar adaptations and habitats. In literacy, using the book Shackleton's Journey by William Grill, we will be writing persuasive letters to be part of his mighty crew. We will also be writing a non-chronological report about polar bears and persuading Miss Cooper to allow us to adopt a penguin. 




Home Learning

Please try to hear your child read daily and sign their reading record so it can count towards the "Read for the stars" reward in school. We suggest that they read at least three times a week for at least 10 minuets each time.

The children are also working hard learning their times tables which we send home each week.

Class Notices

Swimming is on a Monday, so please ensure your child brings appropriate swimming wear and a towel. 

P.E. is on a Thursday. Please ensure your child has their school P.E. kit with them. We would suggest that the children bring their P.E. kit in on a Monday and if necessary take it home on a Friday, or even better at the end of the half term. There is sometimes the opportunity for the children to do extra P.E. sessions and having their kit in school would really help. South Bank Primary P.E. kit is a white t-shirt, black shorts and a pair of plimsolls or trainers (not school shoes).
Earrings need to be removed or covered for PE.

Our Year 5 school councillors are Elissa Simpson and Connor Watson.

Our Year 5 Eco Warriors are Bridieleigh Yarker and Spencer Rawles.
