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, 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 are beginning with looking at our formation of sentences through a really interesting books. You'll learn lots of new skills as well as practicing the things you have learnt previously.
Maths begins with place value and moves through a range of areas, building on prior knowledge and understanding, then taking you further.
Our topic this term is Tomb Raiders and we learn about many aspects of geography and history through looking at the Ancient Egyptians.
Science is 'A day at Disney' where we cover a range of science concepts which link to the theme. 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 game developers. We will learn how game developers work and the steps they have to go through. You will then be using Scratch to develop your own games.
PE will be on a Wednesday morning (gymnastics) and a Thursday afternoon (swimming). Children need to come to school in their PE kit 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.
Important dates and events will be added as relevant.
Look out for the class newsletter, homework and track my read log in.
Looking forward to an awesome term.
