Welcome to Year 5!
Welcome back to school
It's great to be back and start to establish our new routines.
I will update our page regularly to share with you what we have been doing in class. As we are unable to invite you in to meet us I will be posting a short film of what the classroom looks like by Tuesday 15th September.
Please find below a welcome letter and an overview of our learning for this term.
Thank you very much for you donations for Harvest Festival, we have gathered quite a collection in Year 5.
The children have learnt about the meaning of Harvest Festival and have been thinking about what they are grateful for. They have created beautiful harvest art work, which we will be displaying outside our classroom.
Websites for Children to access additional learning.
Update from the Government on home-learning
The Government has now compiled an initial list of online educational resources to help children learning at home.
These websites have been identified by some of the country’s leading educational experts and offer a wide range of support and resources for pupils of all ages.
Please click on the following links that will lead you to the online resources.
At Harlaxton we use the White Rose Scheme of work to support our planning and teaching of Mastery Maths lesson. Mastery Maths is broken it 5 elements - please see the diagram below.
White Rose have launched home-learning resources, which can be found at the following link. These resources include film clips, questions and answers. I may refer to these on the weekly timetable.

On a daily basis, the children try to demonstrate our core values within school. As we aim to practise them so often, they become good habits that we can use not only in school but also at home too.
This year we will be helping the children to develop a Growth Mindset. This aims to increase their resilience, perseverance and independence in their learning. Further information can be found by following the link below.
Homework is given out on a Wednesday to be returned by the following Monday. It will consist of a piece of English or Maths work which will consolidate your learning from the week.
Spellings are also given out and the test will be the following Wednesday.
Keep practising your times tables. You need to be confident with all times tables up to 12 x 12.
Remember to read regularly and record this in your reading record. If you read at least 5 times every week and your record has been signed by an adult for each entry you will be awarded a house point.
My Style homework is also given out each term.
