Welcome to Year 5
I hope you are as happy and excited as me and Mrs Collins to have you back in school! There will be time for learning, time for friends and time for fun too! Throughout home learning, I hope you have enjoyed spending time with your family and being creative with your learning. I have heard about some of the things you have been up to in your letters and I am excited to hear more about it whilst we make a great start to Year 5.
Our topic this year will begin with Ancient Greece where we will be learning all about life during this time and some of their achievements. There is also some opportunities to get creative and work practically too! Further into the half term, we will be working on our Art skills for a couple of weeks which I am very excited about!
In our Maths lessons, we will focus on number and place value as well as addition and subtraction to really build our skills in these areas. We have an exciting structure to our Maths lessons that I think you will enjoy.
Our English lessons will be focused on a book, Inside my heart and in my head… Feelings, for a couple of weeks before writing our own Greek myths!
This year, we will have PE on a Monday and Thursday and you will need to arrive in your PE kit on these days. On a Monday we will have Enrichment which will consist of PE, Computing and Cooking. On a Thursday we will have Enhancement, focusing on PE and developing our writing skills.
Homework will be set on a Thursday including MyMaths, SpellingShed and TTRockstars with a week to complete it.
We have a lot of lost time to make up for after missing so much school this year. I am hoping that not only will we focus on developing our learning but we will also spend quality time together as a class. Myself and Mrs Collins will be there to support you each day and we will do our very best to keep you safe and happy in the classroom.
I hope that you enjoy your first half term as Year 5!
