Hello everyone

 

Hello all

Let me start by welcoming you all to Year 5 and Fox Class. Mrs Anderson and I are very much looking forward to seeing you all in September and getting started on a brand new year. We hope very much that you have all had a restful but fun-filled summer and we can't wait to hear all about it when we see you on the 1st. Several things have been planned for those first two days when we return and these should help us all settle back in nicely we hope. More on this to follow shortly. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your summer and we shall see you soon. If you have any questions or concerns please do contact myself or Mrs Anderson via email (details below)

English - In Term 1 we shall read the Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. We shall write character and setting descriptions using this text as our inspiration. We shall also debate whether or not Dick Turpin was in fact a hero or a villain? which will lead us into writing a balanced argument. 

 

Maths - We begin the new academic year looking at place value before moving onto addition and subtraction.

 

Science - Term 1 will see us looking at forces, covering friction, gravity, air and water resistance to name but a few.  

 

Curriculum - "Who Dunnit?" Crime and Punishment is our topic for Terms 1 and 2. We shall look at how crime was dealt with throughout the ages and discover how things have changed and who dealt with crime in the toughest way. 

 

P.E. - In term 1 we shall be learning to play basketball. This will take place on a Tuesday, so please come into school wearing the correct PE kit of a white t-shirt, black shorts or tracksuit bottoms and trainers. School jumpers or cardigans can be worn if you feel the cold.   

 

PSHE - In term 1 we shall consider, 'Being me in my world' understanding where we fit in and our responsibilities as citizens of the world today. 

 

RE - Why do some people believe God exists?

 

 

Music - Our genre for this first term is Rock and we will start with Livin on a Prayer. I'm sure we all know this one!

Spellings

 

Each week the children will be taught spellings and they will be tested on these. They will added to the class page so that grown-ups can help children practice.

 

Homework

 

Children may be asked to complete work at home. This will only be done if a child is deemed to need a little more practice in order to better understand the learning in school, NOT AS A PUNISHMENT.
