Class 5M - Year 5
Class 5M - Year 5
A warm welcome to Year 5, your children are in for a real treat this year!
I was so pleased with the fantastic attitude and effort from the children the last few weeks.. This half-term we have an abundance of exciting learning opportunities to look forward to. In English, we will be studying The Highway Man by Alfred Noyes. This is a narrative poem and encourages lots of role play and discussions about the type of language used. They will also read Oranges in No Man’s Land by Elizabeth Laird. They will continue to develop their maths skills following Power Maths. In Science, they will examine forces and conduct some scientific investigations. Our topic for Design Technology is Structures. This allows them to design and make their own market stalls! We are extremely lucky to be allocated a slot with the CLC allowing us to engage in some Coding activities. As we near the festive period, our topic for RE is Christmas in Art. Thank you for all of your kind food donations to assist with our Harvest celebrations. They were gratefully appreciated by our local food bank.
PE will continue to take place every Friday. This half term they will participate in tag rugby. The children will need to have a full kit in school and will now get changed into this on the day. Homework is set each Friday and needs to be returned by the following Friday. Spellings will be given out on Mondays and the children will be tested Friday mornings. Your child will also bring home a school reading book with a reading record, this should come into school with them every day. Please encourage your child to read at home, even if it is just a few pages each night and sign and date their record. Our class author is Frank Cottrell-Boyce. We will be reading lots of his books for pleasure throughout the year.
I am really looking forward to a fantastic half-term with your wonderful children. If you have any queries then please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Thank you for your continued support,
