Hello and welcome to year 5!
We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas break, and are feeling refreshed and ready for all of the exciting learning and activities we have planned for this year and throughout the Spring term.
This year we will be continuing with our Power Maths scheme, as well as having a huge focus on reading throughout the year across all core and foundation subjects.
Some of our topics in foundation subjects include Sow, Grow and Farm in Geography; States of Matter and Time in Science; Eat the Seasons in Design Technology and Tints, Nature's Art in Art.
As part of our Religious Education, we will be looking at the festival of Eid and in French learning how to speak about the weather.
In PE our topics for this first term are Gymnastics and Volleyball (Spring 1) and OAA and Basketball (Spring 2)
Our PE days are:
Emerald – Wednesday and Friday
Jade – Tuesday and Friday
Don’t forget to make sure you wear the correct PE kit to school on your PE days.
The PE kit is red school jumper, white polo shirt, black shorts or black jogging bottoms with trainers.
Our homework expectations will remain the same as they did in the final part of last year. Children will need to read at a minimum of three times per week, which will need to be recorded and signed by an adult in their reading record. They must practice their spellings in their spelling books before the dictation test on Friday and will need to ensure they reach their target for TTRS coins using Times Table Rockstars. All must be completed by a Friday, when by which the classes adults will check this has been completed. Children should also check for updates on Google Classroom and check out ActiveLearn for games posted linked to our Maths in class learning.
We hope you are looking forward to the Autumn term as much as we are!
