Year 5 (Class 12)
Welcome to Mrs Grundy and Class 12’s web page!
Welcome to our home learning zone, where I will be adding work each day for you to try whilst we’re at home. The work will be as similar to what you would be doing in school as possible, so it’s important for you to do as much as you can so we don’t miss out.
Hope you’re ok everyone,
Yr 5 Curriculum Map
Wednesday 29th September
Each day I will give you 5 words for you to practise. Think about the way we practise them in class: pyramid, eyes closed, backwards, wrong hand, colours (if you have them at home.) Write them out plenty of times until you feel confident that you know them. Perhaps you could ask someone to test you on them, or cover them and test yourself.
Todays spellings are:
You could also be using your time at home to make sure you are a times table wizz!! You could try Daily 10 at home, and hit the button is a great learning tool too. Websites are:
We’ve been learning about the myth Prometheus and Pandora and I’ve been really impressed with how much you have all enjoyed and remembered the story. Today I would like you to answer these questions. It would be great if you could write your responses down, but if that is an issue for you, you could talk about each question with someone at home.
- What would you say to Zeus if you met him?
- Do you think that Prometheus deserved him punishment? Why/why not?
- Did you want Pandora to open the box? Why/why not?
- What did you think was going to be in the box?
Let’s keep working on our rounding skills. We have worked hard on our techniques for rounding to the nearest 10, 100, 1000 and even 10,000!! Today I’d like you to solve the cryptic puzzle here…Rounding Wednesday
Don’t forget our golden rule- 1, 2, 3, 4 hit the floor, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 climb!!
I know you have all really enjoyed our Tudors topic so far, and I was really looking forward to doing this lesson with you! I hope you enjoy it at home, it’s an opportunity for you to learn loads of cool facts. I’d like you to create a fact file about what life was like for rich and poor people during the Tudor period. We have learnt lots about the royals, but what would life have been like for normal people like you and I?
I will give you different areas of Tudor life to look at each day, starting with homes. Read through the PowerPoint Tudor Houses to find out what homes were like. You could do some research yourself if you wanted to or if you have trouble opening the PowerPoint. I’ve put an example of how you could set your work out here…Homes- rich and poor layout but if you would like to set it out different, that’s fine. I’m looking forward to you telling me what have found out when we are back together again!
That’s all for today guys, I’ll add some more ready for tomorrow.
Here you can find lots of information about the fun we will be having and the things we will be learning this year.
Hello year 5 children, parents and carers,
Welcome to year 5! We will be using this class page, our year 5 twitter page @SMAAAyear5 to keep in touch with you at home while we continue to get used to this different way of working.
You can visit some of the web pages we have shared below for some extra practise at home…
Our School Councillors for this year are Ethan M and Eva C. They will represent our class in school council meetings and share ideas from the children in our class.
Our Eco Warriors for this year is James Y. He will work as part of the Eco Team and help to make our school more eco-friendly.
Our Reading Ambassadors is Ava D. Her role is to share a love of reading within the school.

In our Come and See lessons this term we will be exploring Ourselves.
We will be thinking about the how are unique and how we can use our gifts to help others.
Our Worship Warrior this year is Eloise M.
We have illustrated our school mission statement to show what it means to us.
How we live the mission statement in our class
We gather together to say our daily prayers, listen to scripture, sing hymns and share stories that we know from the Bible. We help and support each other always.
Valued and Recognised for our Unique Contributions
We receive the Gold Award and praise from our teachers and peers for our achievements. We compliment each other and celebrate our achievements.
Child Centred Education
We decide what we would like to learn about at the start of each of our topics by sharing what we know, think and wonder. We are given the freedom to take risks in our learning and to try new things.
Positive Learning Environment
We have bright welcoming classrooms where we can learn, share, laugh and be ourselves.
Gospel Value of Love and Respect
We follow the rules set out to us and set good examples to other children around the school. We follow in Jesus’ light and let him guide us to make good choices.
Partnership with Parents, Carers, Governors, the Parish and Wider Community
We invite everyone from our school community to join in celebrations with us. We give up time to volunteer and help local charities.
Year 5 Curriculum
In our Literacy lessons, we are reading myths. We will be creating our own myths drawing ideas from the one we have read. We will be learning lots of new writing techniques and vocabulary and trying to include this in our work.
In Maths we will be focusing on place value. We are also working hard to brush up on our multiplication facts ready for our multiplication and division topic later in the year.
Our topic this half term is Earth and Space. It is a great topic where we explore the planets in our solar system, the reason for seasons and also learn about the phases of the moon.
This term we will be learning about the Tudors. We will be learning about the rise of the Tudors from the beginning at the Battle of Bosworth, how people lived in Tudor times, Henry the VIII and his six wives and Tudor explorers.
This term we will be designing our own healthy pizzas. We will think about what ingredients are good for us and can give us energy to keep active. We will also design packaging to encourage people to buy our products.
In Class 12 we are lucky to have a nice library area filled with lots of books that we can share and enjoy. We have library monitors who look after the library and keep track of all of the books. We 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 we can use in lesson times and in golden times to do research to help us with our work and to complete different tasks. We have written our own e-safety rules which we have promised to stick by to stay safe when using computers and the internet both in class and at home. We will be following a computing curriculum to enhance your computing skills across the year.
We award Class Dojos to children in year 5 who are well behaved, try hard in class, are well mannered and help others.
Who will win the Class Dojo competition this term for the child with the most positive points?
Packed Lunches and Healthy Snacks
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.
