Year 5C 2019 - 2020
Welcome to 5C!
Hello! We know that a lot of you are now learning from home. Now more than ever, you should be able to use those key animal learning muscles. Be a resilient rhino - Keep going, even if you find things or situations tricky! Be an Ant - Help someone out, if you see they are struggling. Maybe check in on your friends, it's good to communicate with each other! Be a Beaver - What resources can you use to help support your learning? Be a Tortoise - Reflect on your daily activities. What have you done well? What could you do differently tomorrow? Be kind to yourself and each other. This is a whole new learning process so things might feel a little different for a while, but that's okay!
Please make sure that you look at our 'Home Learning' Tab. This will give you plenty of ideas for activities to complete at home. Some of them require internet, some don't need any internet at all! You should all have a login to access the school website, so that you can update me with all of your fabulous home learning. Stay safe and have fun! We are incredibly proud of each and every one of you- Miss Chapman and Mrs Elson
This Spring term, our topic is called: Castles, creatures and curious diseases. We will be looking at the Plague, Castles from around Great Britain, dragons and focusing on our Science topic which is all to do with Space.
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 Spring Term is Castles, creatures and curious diseases.
One of the books we will use during this study is S.A Patrick- A darkness of dragons
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.
