Welcome to Year 5!
Class teacher - Mrs Spruce.
In class 5, PE sessions are on a Wednesday and a Friday. Please make sure children have their PE kits in school for these days. Homework will be completed on Century Tech (online resource) and paper copies of homework will be given when needed. A spelling lesson and test will be completed on Friday mornings, following our RWI spelling programme. Children in class 5 are given a weekly spelling focus to practice. It is also essential that the children in class 5 are confident with their times tables - please practice when you can!
Summer Curriculum Vehicle overview
During our Maths lessons, we are focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages. This is a really important topic in class 5 and the children are already working hard on their understanding of fractions.
Within our English lessons this half term, class 5 will be looking at non-fictional writing all about explorers! The children will be creating their own non-fictional handbooks about 'Ultimate Explorers'. We will also move onto our fictional book for this term called 'Oranges in No Man's Land', written by Elizabeth Laird. The children in class 5 will create their own 1st person war narratives, using our focus story for inspiration.
Children in class 5 are expected to be reading at least three times a week. When children reach this reading target, they are able to join our achievements board for the week. Please encourage your child to read at home, as this will help them progress with both their reading and writing skills.
