Extra-curricular - This is our most exciting and outdoor half term - we have Winmarleigh and Bikeability.
Please see our attached kit list for our residential if you cant find yours.
Also, for Bikeability, it is a good idea to send your child with a bike lock as it is necessary to leave bikes outside when not in use.
Topic- This half term our Topic is Ancient Greece. We have combined our skills and have developed our art and DT skills through use of a range of media including mod-roc and clay to create helmets and vases. We have used research skills to learn about Greece today and Ancient Greece. Even our music has included singing about Ancient Greece!
English- I think the whole class loved our last topic and I am sure this term will be the same. We will be analysing what makes a good performance poem and, of course, performing some well-known poems.
We will also be writing using our trip to Winmarleigh as a stimulus for our writing.
Maths- We will be looking at place value and the four number calculations, as well as working on other areas of maths, including lots of ways to remember times table facts. Our focus is on developing pace and fluency through this work. Every day we also have a focus on reasoning!
In Science, our topic is Forces.
A few of the videos we use in class:
PE - Our PE days this half term are Tuesday and Friday. Please encourage your child to bring their kit to school on Monday and take it home on Friday.
Homework - Homework will be given out on a Thursday to be returned by the following Wednesday, this allows time for it to be marked. Homework will consist of either Maths, English or Topic, and is to be completed in an exercise book. Occasionally we may send out a mini-project.
Winmarleigh - Our exciting trip will soon be here! I know the class are as excited as we are! Keep an eye out for the date of our parents' information meeting.
Bikeability - As you may know, Year 5 has traditionally been when we arrange for the children to learn how to cycle safely and, in the past, this has been free. Due to cuts in government funding, we now have to pay to provide this training. Instead of passing this cost onto parents, Year 5 have decided to fundraise to pay for the training. Thank you to those who have already donated such delicious baking - we are already well on our way to raising the amount we need -we will arrange more opportunities later in the year (although, as is well known around school, Mrs Moxon does not eat buns, biscuits or cakes - ever!)
