Year 5 2016 - 2017

Welcome to Year 5!

Our CREATE term is well under way and the children have already produced and performed a quite brilliant assembly. This has lead excellently into the new term where the children are encouraged to be as creative, imaginative and unique as possible.

Through every subject in the curriculum we will be making our own special creations for our Inspiration in a Box topic. I cannot wait to see what we will create, the possibilities are endless!

If you have any questions or queries please don't hesitate to ask. Our door is always open.


Class Five Responsibilities

Each child in Class Five has a Reading Record and it is their responsibilty to read at home and record what they have read in their book. If a family member could initial their record they will receive house points when it is returned to school.

Class Five will receive spellings on a Monday allowing them to practice for their spelling test on Friday, it is expected that the spelling sheet is returned completed on Friday.

Class Five are encouraged to be prepared for each day of school life. Saxophone now takes place on a Monday afternoon and P.E. takes place on a Thursday and Friday afternoon. This is to encourage independence as they journey through St. Jerome's.


Purple Mash

St. Jerome's has recently gained access to a brilliant new online software package called Purple Mash. The children in Class Five are very excited to start using it and their usernames and passwords have been handed out.

To log in simply click on this link:

Enter your details and you should be taken straight to the home page. Here the children can access all the content which covers the entire curriculum. The children are encouraged to use whatever activities they wish and save their work which on approval could be placed on our Class Five Display Board.

The software will be used for homework at different times throughout the year so if there are any issues logging on to the website please let me know so I can hopefully address them.


Music - Saxophone

When you enter the website, you will be asked for a specific code whether you are a returning to the website or a first time user. The code required is:
