Hello and welcome to year 5 class page. Our teachers are Mr Morgan and Mrs Turner and we are supported by Mrs Robins, Mrs Davis, Mrs Watkins and Mr Warren.
We have had a fantastic start to the academic year and the children have thoroughly enjoyed their topic of Ancient Greece. This Spring term we are looking forward to learning about the Vikings.
In English, we will be focussing on story writing (taking inspiration from Harry Potter and the philosopher’s stone by JK Rowling). After half term, we will then begin working on explanation texts based on our science work. Reading is crucial part of children’s learning and development and we actively encourage you to read regularly with them at home.
The Maths focus this term will be primarily on number. We will be encouraging the children to learn their tables thoroughly, so please do help them at home. We have TimesTable Rockstars that can be also used as a paper version if you are not able to access the online activities, please ask your class teacher for these.
This term our topic focus will be The Vikings. Amongst other things, we will learn about a day in the life of a Viking, the religious beliefs of a Viking and Viking travel. In DT lessons, we will design and create a Viking long boat. We are really excited about the Viking visitor coming to see us, and there will be more information to follow.
Outdoor P.E. will be on a Monday. Please ensure children have kit appropriate for wet and cold weather, as long as it is safe we will be taking the children out.
This term is Year Five’s turn to go swimming. This will take place on a Friday afternoon. Children will need their swimming kits including towels and swimming hats in school every Friday.
Science focus this term will be focused on Living things including life cycles, plants and humans.
If you have any concerns do please come in to speak to one of us, so that we can help you as quickly as we can.
