As part of out British Values in Year 5, we will be learning about democracy by encouraging the children to make decisions together. We will do this by holding class votes. We will hold votes for class representatives and we will vote every half term for our Behaviour Ambassador.
Respect and tolerance of each other are part of the values underpinned in our school. We will be looking at different topics in our lessons such as cultural, ethnical and religious diversity in the UK. We will be discussing the issues of racism, stereotyping and homophobia.
After holding elections in Yew 5 for our student council representatives we have selected Abdullah and Inaya. It was agreed that they would both be great representatives for Yew 5 and would do everything that they could to help the school and the class. They will attend meetings and help to make decisions to continue to improve our school.
Each half term we will choose a behaviour ambassador for the class. In Yew 5 our behaviour ambassador for the Summer term 1 is Shokria. She has been chosen for the way in which she conducts herself around school and in lessons. Her role will be to keep the children in our class and school in line with the schools behaviour policy and encourage children to behave in the way that is expected.
Our sports council representatives are Shekeeb and Alfiyah.
Our SMART Bot representatives are Hadya and Atif.

In year 5 children will be given homework on a Friday. Children will have two pieces of homework, one for English and one for Maths. Children will also have spellings. All homework will be handed in on the following Tuesday and children will be tested on their spellings on a Friday. All homework will be explained before it is sent home, but if your child is unsure, please encourage your child to speak to a member of staff in Yew 5.
The children also have reading books and reading journals. Please take the time to listen to your child read, or if they are confident reading independently please sign their reading journals. We have a class library slot every Wednesday afternoon, where library books can be chosen and changed when necessary.
Please use these resources to support your child in their learning.
