Happy Easter

Well Year 5 students (and parents), we have officially come to the end of an unusual term. Thank you all for engaging with the home learning, we have very much enjoyed staying in contact with you all. We would now like to wish you a very happy and cosy Easter.

Remember, if you are looking for something to do:

(1) Look at the activities for Year 5 on Twinkl or BBC Bitesize. These are both excellent websites, with lots of fun things to do and many resources for Maths and English if you would like to revise what we have been doing so far in Year 5. There is also an attachment at the bottom of this page called 'Useful Links for Learning at Home' which offers some other websites too. 

(2) Keep checking the Kingsnorth School channel on Youtube - click here to go to the channel - both Miss Howling and Mrs Riseley will be posting readings of Truckers and The Boy At The Back Of The Class for you to enjoy! There will be lots of activities for you to do relating to these books after Easter, but for now simply enjoy listening. 

Happy Easter! We look forward to speaking to you all again after the break.

Mrs Riseley and Miss Howling

 

Hello there, good afternoon everyone!

Just a reminder to tune in to Youtube to listen to the new class novel 'Truckers'. There is a link below to Part One. Part Three will be available from 6pm tonight!

 

Good evening everyone. As promised, here is the first part of Truckers: the fun fantasy novel by Terry Pratchett. A New part will be available at 6pm each weekday.

ANNOUNCEMENT: NEW YEAR 5 NOVEL!

Truckers: The First Book of the Nomes The Bromeliad: Amazon.co.uk ...

Hello there everyone. Just a little announcement - at 6pm the first part of the new Year 5 novel will launch as an audio file on the Kingsnorth Primary youtube channel. We miss reading to you! A new section of the novel will then be uploaded Monday-Friday at 6pm for you to enjoy. Spread the word - it's a fantastic book, and lots of fun!

TRUCKERS: The First Book of the Nomes

Under the floorboards of The Store is a world of four-inch-tall nomes that humans never see. It is commonly known among these nomes that Arnold Brothers (est. 1905) created the Store for them to live in, and he declared: "Everything Under One Roof." Therefore there can be no such thing as Outside. It just makes sense.

That is, until the day a group of nomes arrives on a truck, claiming to be from Outside, talking about Day and Night and Snow and other creatures.

 

Friday 3rd April 2020

Welcome to Paver Class and Pullman Class

HERE IS THE LINK FOR YOU TO ACCESS  AR at HOME 

Please see our Useful Links document below with some information to support you and your children continuing to learn at home. 

This year, the classes at Kingsnorth are named after excellent authors. In Year 5 we have chosen Michelle Paver (Wolf Brother from the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series) and Philip Pullman (Northern Lights from His Dark Materials trilogy). We have already begun examining our authors and their work and are thoroughly enjoying learning all about them.  

Please see attached newsletter for information about our work in class this term. Just some general reminders:   

  • Please ensure children have appropriate for the season P.E. kit at school throughout the week. We will have P.E. each Tuesday afternoon. Once a term we will have a block of P.E. in addition to this, therefore it is important kit is in school.
  • In Year 5 we work hard together to promote a love of learning and an independent, growth mindset approach to our work.
  • The teachers in Year 5 are always willing to talk to parents about their children's wellbeing and learning. We endeavour to respond to emails within the next working day and are happy to meet with you whenever needed at mutually agreed time. 
  • Homework continues to focus on key skills, particularly times tables and spellings. We do always add a 'project' style activity which is entirely optional. However, we do love reading these extra contributions!

Please find below a list of the spellings that you will recognise from our homework through the year. It is important to continue revisiting these.

Please continue supporting your children in accessing Times Tables Rockstars!!
