We are a class of year 5 pupils and our teacher is Mr Davies. Our context for learning this term is 'Bend and Flow' where we will be learning about water and rivers. We will be exploring the water cycle and the journey of a river and we will be investigating major global rivers and water sources.
In Literacy we will be continuing to develop our comprehension and response to reading skills. We will also be exploring recount texts linked to our context and we'll be writing a recount text of our upcoming trip. Each week we will have a spelling test to enhance our skills.
This term we are focusing on developing reasoning skills and applying them to a range of problems. We will also be exploring shape, angles, fractions and percentages as well as developing our number skills.
All homework will be given out on a Friday to be completed over the weekend. These will include Big maths tests, spelling lists and usually a topic-related task. Homework will usually be a literacy and numeracy task but sometimes there will be projects linked to our context.
Kits must be worn to school on a Monday. Please ensure your child is able to remove any jewelry (or cover it up), comfortable clothing and suitable footwear. Our P.E topic this term will include dance and athletics
We really, really want to be the best class in the school for attendance every week this year. It is so important that we work as a team and everyone comes to school every day they can.
