5P Miss Pinder


Welcome to Class 5P!

Welcome to our class page.


Here you'll be able to find links to work that we do in school and photographs of all the fun we've been having.


This term our topic is Reach for the Stars!


This term our topic is ‘Reach for the Stars.' We will be learning about the planets in our solar system, the relationship between the Earth, sun and moon as well as studying the history of space exploration. 

Who won the Space Race? 

What are the phases of the moon?

Could humans survive on Mars?

Could there be life on other planets?


Furthermore, in science we will be studying 'Light.' 

How does light travel?

How do we see things?

How are shadows formed and how do they change?




Topic Homework
This term we will be asking you to complete three tasks of your choosing before October half term and another three before the Christmas holidays. We've got lots of great activities for you to try! If you lose the homework grid, you can get a copy from the link below. 




PE and Games

Our timetabled PE is on a Monday and games on a Friday.



It's a good idea to have both your indoor and outdoor kits in school all week as we might find time to do PE on other days too.

Outdoor PE Kit required

White polo T-Shirt
Dark tracksuit bottoms and jumper (no logos)
Trainers or football boots (if already owned)
Shin pads (if already owned)
No jewellery
Long hair tied up

Indoor PE Kit

White polo T-Shirt
Black shorts (no logos)
Black plimsolls
No jewellery
Long hair tied up

Please note, it is important that your child has separate indoor PE shoes to help us to look after our hall floor.


We will be studying a variety of faiths from different cultures and hope to have visitors to speak to the children.

Mymaths Homework
You will be given mymaths homework each Monday, to be completed by the following Monday.  

   If you are unable to complete your Mymaths at home you can come along to the Mymaths lunchtime club held on a Tuesday in 5M and Thursday in 5S.


You will find your log on information for 'MyMaths' in your planner.  If you lose it or can't remember it, please come and speak to me and I will find it for you


Times Tables
 It's important to get your knowledge of times tables really secure, with instant recall of the facts up to at least 12 x 12. This is because future maths skills build on this knowledge, and without it you will struggle later on. It's a good idea to keep practising from time to time too, because if you don't use it you might lose it.

Each child has been given a 'TT rock stars' log in to practice their times tables through exciting games both in school and at home. Their log in can be found in the front of their planner. 

The children will be tested throughout the week on their recall of their times tables which is why taking the time to practice these times tables is important.

Can we beat the other classes?!


   Don't forget to keep getting those planners signed each time you read to try to get those High Fives.


Let's try and get lots more High Five Awards this term!


Can you complete your book bingo card? 



Have you seen the Kids Zone? Play games, and visit some cool websites. You can vote for your favourites!


If you have any worries or your grown ups have any questions then please come and see me.
