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 is given out on a Friday and expected back each Monday. A spelling lesson and test will be completed on Friday mornings. 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!
We are starting our half term by introducing our new Curriculum vehicle 'SCFC Multi-Skills competition and nutritional diaries'. Class 5 are going to create their own sports competitions and activity cards for Stoke City to use in their future training programs, as well as produce nutritional diaries based on a professions athlete's diet.
Within our English lessons this half term, class 5 will be looking at Michael Morpurgo's 'Kensuke's Kingdom'. We will focus lots on the language and structure of the text which will help the children to practice their punctuation and story telling abilities. At the end of this unit, the children in class 5 will create their own adventure stories to share.
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.
