Livingstone Primary School

'Opportunity For All To Succeed'

Welcome to Hawks Class-Year 5

Miss Churchill, Mrs Lara, Ms Baldwin and Mrs Limb would like to welcome you to the Hawks class page. Feel free to take a look around.

The learning never stops at Livingstone, so you may be home, but there's still lots of fun activities to be completed! Check in each week to see the timetable!

Spring 1 is here!

This term, we will be:

  • Busy experimenting with materials in Science
  • Learning about mountains an rivers in Topic
  • Expanding our knowledge of Spanish phrases
  • Using our computer skills to make spreadsheets
  • Learning about autobiographies and biographies in English
  •  Strengthening our Maths knowledge with perimeters, area nd fractions. 
  • As you can see another packed term!

 

Children in Year 5 are increasingly encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning; to do their homework, to pack their school bag, to remember their PE kits... As a result, they will develop and grow in confidence and resilience. It is about encouraging independence in preparation for bigger things to come.

Year 5 homework is every Thursday. There are a variety of activities and tasks to carry out for Maths and English. These will be set on Purple Mash, My Maths, Seesaw and myON

 

You will be set English comprehension, reading and spellings 

 

In Maths, you will be set times tables amongst other activities

 

Hawks have PE on a Thursday and Friday. This term, we will be doing Gymnastics and Cross Country/Yoga.

You need to arrive to school in your PE kit and wear clothing appropriate to the activity and weather.
