Year 5C 2019 - 2020
Welcome to 5C!
I hope you have all had an exciting summer break and you are ready to come back and tell me all the fantastic things you have done during the holidays! Myself and Mrs Elson are enthusiastic to see all of you and hear your stories.
In this class, we use all of our learning muscles in different ways. We work together as Ants, showing one another a new strategy for learning or supporting each other. We are resilient rhinos - Never giving up and making sure that we have put the most effort we can into an activity. We are resourceful beavers - Using resources in and around the classroom to scaffold our learning and support us in lessons. We are reflective tortoises - We look back on achievements and acomplishments. What went well? What did I learn? What do I need to improve on? How can I be even better than what I am already?
Our topic focus for the Autumn Term is 'War, what is it good for?'.
This topic will be centred around World War 2. We will kick-start our Year 5 adventure with a trip to the Stockport Air Raid Shelter and emmerse ourselves in the historic events.
One of the books we will use during this study is Michael Morpurgo - Friend or Foe?
All of you will be given a new topic homework plan and this will be stuck into your Home School Diary. There will also be a copy attached on our Year 5 Web Page when the homework grid is completed.
We also continue to ask you to enjoy reading regularly at home, work on your times tables and we may set additional maths tasks which can be completed through the online resources of 'Prodigy' or using 'Sumdog'. These activities will continue to be recorded in Home School Diaries. In Year 4, there is a huge focus on times tables. Please can children ensure that they are learning their times tables on a regular basis. The National Curriculum states that pupils should be able to fluently recall their times tables up to 12 x 12. Here is a link which can help children recall their tables fluently and efficiently. https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check. These times tables are to be reinforced throughout your school life, so these will be revisited in Year 5 and Year 6.
There will also be weekly spellings given out each week on a Monday and tested the following Monday.
This term we will have PE with Mr Slaney, Mr Jones and Mr Biggs from Premier Sports who will work with us on Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. All children need red shorts, pumps and trainers (outdoors). The new coloured T-shirts (one for each of our houses) for PE can be ordered from the school's online uniform supplier. Girls will need to tie long hair back and cover any earrings. PE kits will also stay in school all term now.
Diaries and regular reading
The school diaries are an important method of communication between home and school. We ask that you sign your child's diary at the end of each week, so that we have regular contact. In Key Stage Two, children have developed the responsibility to record their own reading evidence. They do not need a parent to write down when they have read. Children should be reading for enjoyment. These do not always have to be school books, they could be books from home or online E-books.
