Class 5VT

Happy New Year, this is going to be the best year ever. We have lots planned and can't wait to get started with our learning journey, having fun along the way.


This is our class page and it is where you will be able to find pictures of things we have done and information about what we are learning. So remember to keep checking back. 


This term we continue to at our formation of sentences through amazing books. You'll learn lots of new skills as well as practicing the things you have learnt previously. 

Maths begins with fractions and moves through a range of areas, building on prior knowledge and understanding, then taking you further. 


Our topic this term is Seven Worlds – One Planet and we learn about many aspects of geography. We get to investigate and discover about the life in a range of countries across the globe.


Science is ‘Ratatouille’s Kitchen where we cover a range of science concepts which link to the theme, in particular changing materials. This will be very hands on and involve exciting investigations. 


Computing will recap on safety online and then move on to a unit called; We are html designers. We will learn how web sites work and the steps they have to go through.


PE will be on a Monday afternoon (tennis) and a Thursday morning (gymnastics). Children need to come to school in their PE kit. 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 whenever 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. 


Our class assembly will be on Thursday 27th January and details will be sent out closer to the time.


Look out for the class newsletter and homework


Looking forward to an even more epic term.
