Welcome to the Year 5 class page. Mrs Mousley is the class teacher in Sunflowers class and Miss Murray is the class teacher in Fuchsias class; Mrs Taylor will be supporting in both classes over the course of the year. In Fuchsias class, there are 14 girls and 11 boys. Next door in Sunflowers class, there are 10 girls and 14 boys. We cannot wait to get to know you all better and we have lots of exciting lessons and experiences planned for you.
Please familiarise yourselves with our classroom codes before entering either of the Year 5 classrooms; it is essential that we all follow these rules throughout the school day.
This is the Autumn timetable for Year 5. Please note that your child has PE on Thursday. Please ensure that you have sent your child in with the correct PE, making sure that all items are clearly labelled with your child's full name. We recommend sending a PE kit in one the first day of each half term and we will make sure it is sent home for a wash before each holiday.
During the Autumn term, we will be learning all about Invaders, specifically the Anglo-Saxons. We will spend time learning about the history associated with the era as well as developing our Geography skills. There will also be opportunities to develop our artistic skills as we will be completing a number of art-based lessons.
Check back soon to see some of our work!
Homework is a little different this year at River View. Dynamite Dojo sheets will be uploaded to Google Classroom each half term and homework is to be submitted via this platform. Your teacher will log on regularly and will award dojos once your work has been checked.
We always enjoy seeing how creative you - and your parents - can be so don't delay!
Whenever we use computers, iPads, tablets or mobile phones, we will be following our 5 SMART rules…
Safe: We are careful and do not give out personal information about yourself or anyone else when chatting or posting online.
Meeting: We know that meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous, so it’s not a good idea. We only meet someone with your parents’ or carer’s permission and even then, only when they are with us. We always remember that online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time.
Accepting: We understand that accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems—they may contain viruses or nasty messages!
Reliable: When we chat online, we know it is best to only chat to real world friends and family members. Sometimes, people online might lie about who they are. We always check information found on the internet because it might not be true. We use other websites and books to do this.
Tell: We always tell a parent, carer, trusted adult or phone Childline if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online. We know that we can always report to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command) if we are worried about online abuse or the way that someone is chatting online. https://www.ceop.police.uk/ceop-reporting/
Our 'Richer' values are of great importance and everyone in the school - children and staff- are encouraged to follow them at all times.
C - Caring
H - Helpful
E - Equality
R - Resilience
The children who choose to use their 'Richer' values and receive no red cards during the week will attend Richer Rainbow time on a Friday. Unfortunately, children who do not use their Richer values, will spend Friday afternoons with Mrs Barker, attending a behaviour intervention.
