Mrs Scott, Mrs Jones and Miss Jones
Welcome to Badgers Class with Mrs Jones, Mrs Scott and Miss Jones. We are looking forward to settling back into the routine of school this term and seeing friends old and new.
In Badgers, the basics will be very important this term and we will be doing daily work on arithmetic, times tables, reading, spelling and grammar. In maths we will be starting with place value and calculation. This will make sure we have a secure foundation on which to base the rest of our learning. In English we will be revisiting grammar terminology and practising our writing through a range of text types. Science will focus on Animals including humans.
The enquiry question we will be answering this term is ‘Why do we live in Chard?’. We will start by learning about the geography of the UK and then think about why people choose to live in certain places. After half term we will learn about Chard during WW2.
We will be reinforcing our topic work through ICT where we will learn how to create a PowerPoint, as well as programming skills.
We are very lucky that Mrs Morton will be working with us during the Autumn term to produce some excellent artwork. P.E is on a Monday.
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. Homework will be set and due in on a Friday.
