Welcome to Term 3 - a little different yet again! But you're all fabulous at adapting and moving forwards with a determined spirit.
All work will be set on Seesaw hopefully at 8.30am. Some resources that are too big for example will also be on the website under the tab to the right.
Please direct any questions by email to Year5@kingsnorth.kent.sch.uk so both teachers can access them.
As always, we are so grateful for all your hardwork and support and are here to help so just ask!
Best wishes and of course - Happy New Year!
Miss Howling and Mrs Riseley
A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!
It is official - the children in Year 5 have created art work for a brilliant 360 degree short animation! Not only that, but the animation is now available on Youtube! It was a fabulous project to be part of and the final film is charming. If you'd like to have a watch, click on this link: Carol of the Sea Swallows
Make sure you 'look around' when you're watching it - don't miss the puffins (created by 5H)!

Greetings to 5R
Good morning you lovely people. We will be learning from home for the next 2 weeks. Every morning at 8.30am I will set the day's work on Seesaw. Sometimes the resources will be on this webiste if they are too big for Seesaw. They will be in folders to the right of this page.
You will be able to communicate with me (Mrs Riseley) via Seesaw but if parents want to contact me please use this email address Year5@kingsnorth.kent.sch.uk to ensure your email is responded to.
Please contact me as soon as possible if you need technical support or have any issues accessing the work online and we will find an alternative way - do not struggle!
You showed during the last lockdown how dedicated you are to your home learning and it is really important that we carry on making the fantastic progress you've been making already in Year 5.
I will be available via email and Seesaw 8.30am - 3.30pm everyday for you to contact me and get support so you can complete your learning.
3rd November 2020 - Please see PE notice in Term 2, announcements
Welcome to Year 5, Rauf and Paver Class.
We are really excited about this year and are looking forward to working with your children.
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 Onjali Q Rauf (The Boy at the Back of the Class, The Star at my Window). 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 wear appropriate for the season P.E. kit to school on a Tuesday for our weekly PE lesson. We will let you know when it is the block of PE and then kit can be worn all week.
- 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 talk with you whenever needed at mutually agreed time.
We will update the website with notices as an when we have them!
At the moment are focus is ensuring everyone is safe and happy and therefore able to continue their learning. For home learning, we would like the children to concentrate on practising their times tables and reading both AR books and their own books.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries you have, however small they may seem.
Looking forward to a great term,
Miss Howling and Mrs Riseley
