Dear Parents and Carers,
A warm welcome to the Year 5 Dahl class page. Here you will find more information about the exciting things planned for your child at Richmond Hill primary school.
The Year 5/6 topic this term is the Victorians. Across the phase, all classes will be taking an in depth look into this fascinating period of British history. In our English, staying with the Victorian theme, we are currently reading 'Dodger' the tale of a boy, who having run away from home becomes a successful pickpocket in London.
This term, Year 5 pupils are studying Earth and Space. We have already started to learn about the different planets and why we have day and night as well as seasons. The children have spent some time thinking about different questions they would like to find answers to, which we will try and answer within our Science lessons.
The school continues its commitment to deliver high quality PE to all pupils. This term, Year 5 Dahl PE lessons will take place on a Monday afternoon. It is important that pupils always bring the correct PE kit on this day.
This term's homework is focused on spellings. Each Monday your child will receive a spelling list of the spelling rule we have been focusing on that week in class. Children are expected to learn the spellings each night in preparation for a weekly test on Friday. It is important that time is spent learning these spelling patterns as there will be a spelling test as part of the end of key stage examinations.
Please be assured if you have any questions or concerns that you can come and speak to me in person. It is important that as parents, carers and teachers we have clear, open and honest communication.
Last week we were very proud in Year 5 Dahl as we won the attendance award!
This meant that we had the highest attendance within the whole school with 99.8%. We were all very excited to have won the award. We hope to win this award again as it made us all feel super proud of our achievement. In order to do this, we must all be in school every single day
