Year 5

 

Teacher – Miss Moss

Teaching Assistant – Mrs Etchells

Term 1a

PE Days – Tuesday AM and Wednesday PM. Please remember full kit on those days and long hair must be tied back.

Homework will be given out on Friday and should be returned to school the following Thursday. Reading journals on a book read from school should be completed fortnightly and handed in on a Friday.

Spelling tests are weekly and the children should practise as much as they can during the week.

Children are encouraged to read daily at home and discuss the text they are reading with adults or other children to improve their comprehension skills.

Multiplications (up to at least 12 times tables) should be practised as often as possible throughout the week.

Our class topic this term is ‘Alchemy Island’. We will be following the Chief Alchemist’s journey through his kingdom to help us to learn about the properties and changes of different materials. We will also be using our Geographical skills to plot a route to Castleton before our residential.

The children will be writing narratives based on ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe’ as well as a non-chronological report.

In maths we will be focusing on Place Value and the four calculations.

Thank you for your continued support.

If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch with Miss Moss or Mrs Etchells.
