We hope that you have had the most amazing holiday and are excited about coming to year 5.
We can't wait to get started with our new learning journey.
This term we are beginning our English work by focusing on improving our sentences using a number of fantastic books.
Maths begins with place value and moves through a range of areas, building on prior knowledge and understanding.
Our topic this term is Tomb Raiders, looking at what life was like in Anicent Egypt, incorporating many geography and history elements. We always enjoy this topic! Science is 'A day at Disney' and we cover a range of science concepts using our investigative skills. We are so excited about this topic.
We have some exciting music sessions planned during the first term and are looking forward to sharing this with you all.
Computing will recap on safety online and then move on to a unit called; We are game developers. We will learn how game developers work and the steps they have to go through. We will be using an online program called Scratch, which you will already be familiar with, to help us develop our own computer games.
PE will be on a Wednesday morning (gymnastics) and a Thursday afternoon (swimming). Children need to come to school in their PE kit (black trousers or shorts and a plain white t-shirt please) and bring the correct swimming costume with them. Swimming starts on the 16th of September and runs until November. Please ensure that children have removed all jewellery and have their hair up (as necessary) on these days.
Homework will be given out at the start of term and will be on Teams. Children need to complete work and 'hand in' on teams to earn their points towards a certificate. Certificates are given out at the end of term, but children can hand in work when ever it is done. Please encourage them not to leave it till the last minute and then struggle.
Reading will continue to be recorded on 'Track my read' the link will be at the top of the page once it has been set up. Children need to record the minutes reading they do as often as possible. We will be checking it weekly and all minutes will be recorded on a school graph showing each classes' total.
We will let you know as soon as we have dates for school and class events.
Look out for the class newsletter, homework and track my read log in.
