Elm Class (Y5)

Welcome to Year 5

Navenby C of E Primary School - Elm Class  

The adults who support and work with Elm class are:  Miss Reeder, Miss Connolly, Miss Smith and Miss McGuire.  



Spring Term 2023


This term we are going to be learning all about Natural Disasters and the impact they have on humans.  We are also going to explore how the locations of volcanoes and earthquakes play a part in why they occur.   We will be using our locational knowledge to discuss whether the place on the planet impacts its susceptibility to these natural disasters. 

Later in the term, we will also be learning about the historical disaster of the sinking of RMS Titanic. 


In our Science we are leaving Earth and heading to Space!  Learning about the spherical bodies which make up our solar system; why the appearance of the moon alters and in late January the Starlincs Planetarium is coming in!





Spring Term 3

Space Homework - due in Friday 3rd February.


Your English homework this term is linked to our Science unit of work - Space!


I would like you to research something linked to Space, it could be missions into space, The Sun or a distant nebula light-years away!  You can present your research in any way you would like.  It should be a substantial piece, which accounts for 4 weeks of homework time. 


Please do not bring in your finished work before Wednesday 1st February and remember it needs to be in by Friday 3rd of February!


Maths homework - please complete 15 minutes per day on Times Tables Rock Stars!


Fraction and decimals activities

Gymnastics - thinking about counterbalance

Our vases, inspired by one of the elements - Air, Earth, Fire or Water.

Physical Education

This term PE will take place on a Tuesday and Thursday, however we request that your child brings their PE kit in with them on a Monday and then takes it home to be washed every Friday. 


If your child is unable to take part in a PE activity, please send a note into school. Unless circumstances dictate, children will still be expected to change into their PE kit and participate as a non-physical performer. This may include observing, assessing, providing feedback, officiating or using ICT to capture images within the lesson. If children forget all or part of their PE kit a polite note will be recorded in their reading diaries

Lost Property & Cloakroom Space

We have a lost property box in our class cupboard, but let’s hope that we keep our belongings safe!  All children have their own lockers in the corridor where they can store all personal items.  Please ensure your child's property is clearly labelled with their name.


Please try to read regularly with your child; filling in their reading diaries at least 5 times a week. Regular, varied reading not only helps develop reading skills but also has a positive impact on writing standards, spelling, knowledge of grammar rules and most importantly imagination. I firmly believe home reading is still vitally important in Year 5.


Homework will be set in their homework books, this will be set on Fridays and needs to be returned by the following Wednesday. If children are unable to complete their homework tasks, please send a message on the Classroom by Monday so I can help with any problem areas. Your child has a login for Times Tables Rock Stars, there is the expectation that they complete activities on this fantastic platform.  Little and often is most effective!  


I hope you find this information useful. I will be available at the gate after school each day. Please do not hesitate to catch us if you have any questions or alternatively you can send me an email (fran.reeder@navenby.lincs.sch.uk).


Best Wishes,

Miss Reeder
