Year 5 Class Page
Summer Term - 1
Welcome children, parents and carers to the Summer Term!
This term in maths, children will continue to learn about fractions, percentages and decimals. In Literacy and Guided Reading, we will be reading and working from the book 'Just so Stories' which is a wonderful collection of stories composed over 100 years ago.
We will continue with intervention workshops to support the children in Maths and Literacy, as well as after school booster clubs for extra support.
The children will be tested weekly on their times tables and spellings. You can support them in this by ensuring that they spend 15 minutes practising these words and times tables randomly in preparation for their tests. Children should continue to use 'Mathletics' daily as well as reading for 15 minutes each day.
Our Geography topic this half term is about Russia. Children will have the opportunity to research and complete a fact file on Russian features such as rivers and mountains.
The artist of the term is Andrew Goldsworthy and the composer of the term is Johann Sebastian Bach.
Our PE days are Tuesday (pm) and Wednesday (am). Children should bring a PE kit with them on Tuesdays and wear their kit to school on Wednesdays. It is very important to ensure that the children are changing completely for PE to promote good personal hygiene. The PE kit remains unchanged - a white t-shirt, black bottoms and black trainers. We will continue to run the 'Daily Mile' with Mr Ryan who will also teach PE twice a week.
School Uniform - this is as follows:
A red school jumper with a red or white shirt underneath (or a red school fleece). Bottoms should be grey trousers or skirts - NOT tracksuit bottoms or leggings. Shoes should be black.
We have a 'Soft Start' at 8:45am (Tuesday - Friday). Please encourage your child to attend on time, this is a great opportunity to address misconceptions from previous learning and ensures that we start lessons on time and promptly at 9am. If there are any questions regarding this, or any aspects of your child's learning or welfare, please make an appointment to meet with me.
