Hello and Welcome to Class 5!

Teaching Assistants: Miss Campbell and Miss Devey. 

 

Please see the class welcome letter for the Year 5 topics that will be covered this term. 

 

Important things to remember:

PE - Tuesdays and Fridays. All children are expected to have their full kit in school. 

 

Homework - Spellings are given out each Monday and there will be a test on those words the following Monday. Please help your child to learn these at home.

Project - Children have been given the project homework for this half term. There are a number of tasks however one task must be completed each week and brought into school for every Thursday. 

 

Other - Maths or English homework will also be given out each week. This will usually be related some what we have been learning in class. 

 

If you have any questions, please ask :) 

Mrs Platt

 

I cannot believe that we are at the start of our final term already. I hope you all managed to have a relaxing break :)

 

Our topic for this next half term is Amazing Amazon. The children are really enjoying learning all about the rainforest and have already began to produce some super work!

Our main topic subjects are:

English - Looking at stories from other cultures, which will help us plan and write our very own rainforest story and debate - with a focus on deforestation. 

Geography -  Researching what a biome is; the different types of biomes around the world and the locations and structure of rainforests.  

Art -  Creating our very own art projects on the different animals that live in the Amazon rainforest using a range of drawing and painting techniques. 

 

In maths, we are focusing on fractions and then we will be moving onto decimal equivalents of fractions. 

 

We are hopeful that the weather will start to improve shortly so we can even squeeze in some outdoor learning. Keep your fingers crossed for us. 

 

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to come and see me. 

 

Mrs Platt.
