Year 5 2016 - 2017
I hope that you have had a refreshing half term and are ready for a fun-filled term!
This term our topic is:
Do you want to be a kid in America?
This term we will be looking at the journey of the Cocoa Bean and discovering how America has influenced the film industry and famous artists. Some of the activities will include, writing a playscript for a Science-fiction novel, researching how the Cocoa Bean is used across the world, designing and making packaging for a chocolate bar and creating our own Andy Warhol style photography and paintings.
You will be able to access an electronic version of the homework grid using the class website. The children now have a section in their journals where the homework grid for each term will be stuck in. I have asked that children keep a record of when they have completed a task by getting a parent/or guardian to sign and date the box.
The children will be given weekly on a Monday. Please make sure that your child learns these spellings over the week as they shall be tested on the following Monday.
Children are encouraged to continue reading at home and keep a record of this in their journals. This can be a book they have chosen from the school library or one that they are reading at home. I will be checking the children's journals to see if they are keeping their reading record up-to-date. It does not always have to be a book! If you have found an interesting online article, maybe a film or game review or even a magazine, this all counts and strengthens your reading abilties.
Every Monday afternoon, Madame Sharpe will come and teach French in Year 5. C'est tres fantastique!
PE is every Monday and Thursday. Children will need both their indoor and outdoor kit with them at all times and these are to stay in school for the whole term. Please ensure that your child has their kit in school for these days. A list of the required Kit can be found on the 'Uniform' section of the school website.
All children have been provided with a school water bottle. These need to be kept in school during the week and taken home to be washed on a Friday.
