The Circus is coming- Friday 28 June

Year 5


Welcome to the LYNX ...


On this webpage you'll find out all about the fun things we've been up to. Keep checking our page for all the latest things we've been doing, photos and updates.


We are all really looking forward to learning about many things. We work hard but try to have fun along the way. 


Mr Macgregor is our teacher. Our Teaching Assistants are Nikki and Miss Parker. We also have Mr Bingley for PE and Mr Chambers for computing on a Thursday morning.


At the moment we do PE on a Thursday and Friday. 


Our first topic is Alchemy Island and we will be doing lots of fun and exciting science experiments linked to this to help our learning.



For homework we have regular reading and maths homework and then we have project work to do as well that is linked to our topic, this is where you can get really creative!


Our regular work includes reading, spellings and times tables practise.We also all have logins for "Times Tables Rock Stars" which is a great interative resource. In year 5 we expect that these key skills are also being practiced at home as often as possible.


The 10,000 Reads Challenge:

This year we are seeing if together we can read 10,000 times! We worked as a class to look at how many opportunitied we have to read and worked out if we all read everyday we should be able to get there! There is a sheet in our reading diaries that helps count our reads and explains a bit more.
