We hope you have had a lovely Easter holiday and are looking forward to your last term in Year 5. You all worked so hard at the end of last term and we hope you are ready for new challenges.
Our topic in school this term is Music from Shows and Films. The subject areas we will be covering are; Music, Design Technology and History. We will be learning about music and about different composers. You will also have the opportunity to make your own music and stage set.
In Guided Reading we will be continuing to read Holes by Louis Sachar. Why not see if you can borrow a copy from the local library to read along with? In our English lessons, we will be writing in a range of genres that will interest the reader as well as having a focus on using grammar accurately.
In Maths we will be continuing with our learning about decimals and moving on to geometry. Each week we will have an arithmetic test so you can see how you are improving.
Your homework continues to be the same as last term; reading at least three times a week, practising your times tables via the Times Tables Rockstars website and learning weekly spellings.
Below are the PE days for each class. You must come to school wearing the correct PE uniform.
Emerald – Thursday and Friday
Jade – Thursday and Friday
Teal – Tuesday and Thursday
We hope you are looking forward to the term as much as we are.
Mrs Hastings, Miss Gaitely and Mr Goater
Year 5 Teachers
