Year 5 (Class 10)

Welcome
September is here
The leaves will soon fall.
So welcome children
Welcome all.
I hope your holidays
Were really fun.
And that you’re glad
School has begun.

I would like to wish everyone in Class 10 a warm welcome to the new school year and a new adventure in year 5. I look forward to all the fun activities and learning we will be exploring together in the coming months, Mrs Bird.

Year 5 autumn project
Mrs Bird and Miss Hickey challenge you to create a model of either a Tudor House or a Planet/Solar System.
You can pick whichever model you want to make. Your model should be no larger than cereal box size/A3 paper size.
You can use any material to decorate your model but you must be able to carry it into school without help.
You must also include an information sheet to support your model, sharing facts and things you have learnt about either the Tudor Houses or the Planet/Solar System.
All projects MUST be returned into school by Friday 8th December.
This is an individual task so you are encouraged to complete the task independently! (people at home can support you but remember this is your project so it should be your work!)

Our Classroom!
Reading area
In Class 10 we are lucky to have a large library area filled with lots of books for the children to share and enjoy. We have a library monitor who looks after the library and keeps track of all of the books. Children can sign books out of our class library and take them home to share with family and enjoy in their own time.

Our computing area
We have a computer in our classroom which children can use in lesson times and in golden times to do research to help in lessons and complete different tasks. The children have written their own e safety rules which they have promised to stick by to stay safe when using the internet both in class and at home.

Packed Lunches, Healthy Snacks and our School Tuck Shop
At SMAAA we are a healthy school and encourage all children to eat healthy snacks and lunches.
Packed lunches brought into school should consist of healthy food and snacks and should not include chocolate or fizzy drinks.
Children may also bring in a healthy snack to enjoy at break time such as fruit, cheese or toast. Alternatively children can bring in some money to buy a snack from our tuck shop. The Junior tuck shop is run by the Year 6 children and Mr Lewis. They sell a variety of snacks including cheese, fruit and water. The money raised by the Tuck Shop is used to provide awards throughout the year.
