Welcome to Year 5 Class 12

Are you ready for Summer 1?
Here is what we have got coming up for you...
Our creative curriculum topic for this half term is: Beast Creator!
In English this half term the children will be focusing on a range of writing genres such as:
· Non-chronological reports
· Instructions and advertisements
· Limericks and kennings
· Fact files
· Fantasy narrative
This half term the children will be focusing on various aspects of mathematics:
· Place value
· Fractions including decimals
· Measures — time
· Addition and subtraction — multi-step worded problems/written method
· Multiplication and division — multi-step worded problems/written method
The science topic the children will be looking at this half term is animals and their habitats.
For this topic, the children will be:
- Looking at our local environment
- Recognising contrasting locations
In PE this half term Ed Start will be taking the class each Thursday afternoon to build specific skills. The skills this term will be athletics.
The children are tested each Friday. Every Friday, all children will take home a different set of spellings aimed at Year 5/6 - all children are expected to have a go at these, despite possibly being more difficult than their usual spellings.
Our library session is usually on a Wednesday afternoon. The children can renew or exchange their book on this day. We have also sent home reading records for the children to complete themselves. They will need to read for at least 10 minutes a night and answer up to 3 questions that are in the front of their reading record.
Learning Logs will be given out on a Friday and should be returned for marking and feedback by the following Wednesday. Children will be given tasks linked to the week's work as a way of revising skills/knowledge learnt that week. There will a maths, literacy and topic (or science) task to complete. In addition, the children are encourage to learn spellings and the times table (and related divisions) that they are currently working on. Please encourage your child to complete their Learning Log to a high standard - the children are currently learning how to write using cursive script (an example of this is in their Log).
Please feel free to come and see me if you have any questions.
