Welcome to Year 5's class page.
Here in Year 5 we strive to achieve the best of our abilities through motivating and engaging activities. Although we are a large class, we are all dedicated to working as a group and demonstrate the schools beliefs and values within our classroom environment.
Please find below information about our class and what we are taking part in throughout the year. This page will be kept updated with class news and achievements.
Class News and Reminders!
BASKETBALL NEWS: As many of you will know, we all took part in a basketball competition last term. We had a team that went through the semi-finals in the Hoop4Health tournament. The children were given the opportunity to play against the other teams at the Newcastle Eagles basketball game in February. The whole team played extremely well but unfortunately did not get through to play at the half time finals.

Dates for your diary!
Monday 11th April - Back to school
Year 5 receive their homework on a Thursday and should be returned by Tuesday. The homework will change each week and will include Literacy and Numeracy, as well as any additional activities that link to the topics they are looking at in school.
The Numeracy homework is online on the MyMaths webpage. Each child has a log in for this. Help is available on the webpage, if needed, in the form of the 'lesson' page.
Children have the opportunity to ask any questions when the homework is set. There is also a Homework club within school that children are able to attend (please see extra curricular activities page).
This term children be focusing on Gymnastics. This will take place on a Monday morning. Please ensure children have their school PE kits for indoor PE. If we are planning on going outdoors I will let you know in advance.
Here in Year 5 we take part in Gardening every two weeks on a Thursday afternoon. We are trusted with keeping the garden within the school grounds in working order. The vegetables that we grow are used to cook with each week. The children enjoy the process of selecting the vegetables, preparing them for cooking, following the recipe and then trying the finished product at the end of the afternoon.
Children also have the opportunity to use the outdoor fire pit, although this is dependent on weather.
We hope to upload photographs on a regular basis to keep you up to date with the progress we are making.
Please ensure your child has the suitable clothing or 'gardening kit' for each session Thursday, including wellies and waterproofs.
Year 5 are incharge of the healthy tuck shop that is available to the children of Hadrian each break time and before school.
The children had to go through formal interviews and applications for the job role they were assigned.
Each member of the team is essential in keeping the tuck shop running. They are constantly coming up with new ideas and promotions to increase the popularity of the tuck shop.
