Welcome to Year 5DJ!

Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely break and are ready for the Autumn term.

The teacher in Year 5DJ is Mr Jokhi. The teaching assistant is Miss Heron.


Autumn 1 Learning
In Maths we have been looking at place value and addition and subtraction up to the millions. In English we have been reading Kensukes Kingdom and learning how to write descriptive paragraphs and diary entries. In Topic we have been learning all about the Mayans.


Autumn 2 Learning
Next half term we will be reading Think of an Eel and looking at human and animal life cycles.


Homework will be given out at the beginning  of the half term. The homework will give current maths number facts targets to learn, as well as the terms spellings which are tested weekly. In addition, the children can choose from a range of English, Maths and Topic activities directly related to their class learning. All home work should be handed in during the last week of the half term when it will be celebrated

Reading Books

As well as weekly homework, your child has a reading book which they are expected to regularly practise reading at home.Each child will be listened to read at least once per week by an adult. A reading quiz will take place on the computers before a child can take home a new book.

Class Dojo

We use Dojo points in school to reward positive behavior. You can see the points your child has been awarded. Please sign up and stay in touch.

Snack/ Water

If you would like to provide your child with a healthy snack, they can keep this in their tray or book bag. If you would prefer to have an extra snack provided for your child by the school, there is a cost of 20p per day. The children are responsible for looking after this money, and buying the snack at play time.

Please provide your child with a labelled water bottle. These can only be filled with water (not juice!).


We have P.E. on Thursdays and Swimming Lessons on Tuesdays. For P.E. children will need a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps in a bag.

Please ensure these are all clearly named.


This half term we will be researching about what life was life in the Roman times and we will be learning about volcanoes and why they erupt.
