Spring Term 1
Welcome back to Class 5A. Here are a few reminders to help you keep organised throughout this busy half term:
Mondays and Wednesdays – children to wear the correct PE Kit to school on these days. Our outdoor focus this half term is Hockey skills.
Ideally, pupils in Year 5 should be reading on a daily basis at home but if this is not possible, the minimum expectation is to read at least 3 times a week. We do have a monitoring system in place in 5A in the form of bookmarks that need to be signed by an adult every time they listen to you read.
This is handed out every Friday and is due in the following Thursday.
Maths homework is linked to the work completed in class that week to reinforce learning.
English homework consists of a spelling list, a grammar worksheet and a comprehension task (plus reading at least 3 times a week).
Please ensure homework books (green A4) are in school Thursday a.m.
New spellings (linked to the National Curriculum) are given out as part of the homework pupils receive on a Friday and a spelling test takes place the following Friday.
Class 5A have already been working hard. In Maths we are developing our skills in Multiplication & Division.
In our English lessons we are enjoying reading 'Leon and the Place Between' by Graeme Baker Smith. It is a wonderfully elaborate picture book aimed at upper Key Stage 2 pupils and we are basing much of our written work, vocabulary development and comprehension skills around this interesting and exciting book.
"Rabbits, shadow puppets, swirls and spirals, sleights of hand and all manner of thingamies to
keep you looking for hours. Simply wonderful!"
‘Leon and the Place between combines shadowy collage, painting, photography
and gilding to overwhelm readers with the power of magic.’ - The Sunday Times
In History this half term our topic will be about the Anglo-Saxons.
In RE we are asking the question ‘ What would Jesus do?’ and our topic will be Jesus the teacher.
Our Science focus is ‘Living Things in their habitat’.
Please keep checking back for important dates and information for Class 5A as well as information and photos about our fantastic learning this year.
