Mrs Scott, Mrs Jones and Miss Jones
Welcome to Badgers class with Mrs Scott, Mrs Jones and Miss Jones. We are looking forward to a happy and productive Summer term.
Grammar is taught daily in Year 5, as is reading. The children complete a timed reading comprehension every Friday. Spelling is taught three times a week. Linked to our China topic, we will be writing a report about The Great Wall of China and reading The Firework Maker’s Daughter.
In maths we will be beginning the term by learning about decimals and percentages. We will then take a break from number and focus on measure and geometry. In Year 5, Arithmetic is taught daily and tested weekly. Times tables are taught daily.
In Science, we will be learning about living things and their habitats. This will give us the opportunity to go out and about in the school grounds and the pond area to learn about our surroundings.
In History, we will be learning about the Shang dynasty and investigating what impact these ancient people had on the modern world.
This term, as part of our MC48, we will be having a water fight. All the adults in Year 5 are very excited about this!
This term our art work is linked to our history topic and we shall be producing paintings based on Chinese Willow Pattern pottery.. Mrs Nadeau will be teaching R.E.
P.E is on a Monday and Friday afternoon. Children should come to school in P.E kit on these days.
As in all year groups, reading is very important in Year 5 and all children are expected to read 5 times a week at home and complete weekly Maths, English and Spelling homework tasks. We would like it if children could also find time to play on TTRockstars. Homework will be set on a Friday and collected in on a Wednesday. We are of course happy to help children who are finding their homework tricky.
