I’m Miss Dimmock and I’m the Year 5 class teacher. I have been a member of the Silkmore Team for 6 years.
I’m Miss Hackett and I’m one of the Year 5 learning support teachers.
I’m Miss Roberts and I’m another Year 5 learning support teacher.
Meet the teachers
We believe Year 5 is the year children start to become truly independent learners and really find their individual learning preferences and styles.
What We Teach
The content of the National Curriculum is taught through 15 exciting Mini Missions across the year. These Mini Missions allow the children to become scientists during ‘Out of This World’ to detectives during ‘Crime and Punishment’.
One of the sparkles of Silkmore is the unknown nature of the upcoming Mini Missions and the way they are brought to life to hook and engage every pupil. Therefore, we don’t like to publish the names and content of the upcoming Mini Missions. However, if you would like further information about our curriculum, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
In Maths we follow the White Rose planning and content. This is supplemented by weekly ‘Flashback’ sessions which allow pupils to re-visit previously taught content.
Our classroom learning is complemented by weekly PE sessions, Forest School sessions, AIM HIGH lessons and Commando Joes team building.
How you can help your child
If your child is in Year 5 you can support their learning by:
Practising their weekly spellings
Practising all the times tables to help children develop instant recall of all facts up to 12x12
Reading every day
Giving them opportunities to be independent at home
Allowing children to practise basic ICT skills such as typing, editing and presenting work
Supporting your child to access their home learning sites: Timestable Rock stars, Maths Seeds, Oxford Reading Buddy and Lexia.
If you’d like any further information about Year 5, please contact the school.
