This year the Foxes are being taught by Miss Miller (Class Teacher). Miss Thomas is our fantastic Teaching Assistant and she is in class with us everyday. We are very friendly and invite you to pop in for a chat if you have any queries or concerns - the classroom door is open from 8.30am everyday and Miss Miller will be available to speak to until the bell goes at 8.40am!
This term brings another whole school topic, which is 'The Secret Garden'. Year 5 will begin by reading the story and discussing the vocabulary before investigating it further during our Guided reading sessions. In Maths, we will be continuing our work on fractions, decimals and percentages for the first couple of weeks. We will be learning all about Forces and motion in Science. Now that the weather is finally warming up, we will also be heading out on to the school field for extra PE or games activities wherever possible!
Don't forget that we have our trip to The Living Rainforest on Tuesday 17th April!
PE is every Tuesday and Friday but children must have their full PE kit in school EVERYDAY. PE kit must include a house colour t-shirt, shorts/jogging bottoms and suitable footwear ie. trainers/ plimsolls.
Homework is given out every Wednesday and should be returned by the following Monday. Each week, homework will consist of 7 spellings from the Year 5/6 spelling list as well as an additional worksheet, usually based on our Maths/Literacy learning for that week.
All children should bring their Reading Record back into school every day as we use these in our Guided Reading lessons. It is important that the children read regularly at home as well as at school, recording their efforts in their Reading Records, to be checked in class.
Children should bring a bag/ book bag into school everyday. This encourages the children to be more independent and organise their belongings, as well as transport letters and homework back and forth without them being lost or damaged.
The Body Coach- Live Workouts!
This week we have been taking part in The Body Coach's live school workouts as part of his mission to get over 1 million children exercising daily! So far the children have really enjoyed the 20 minute HIIT sessions and the teachers had fun joining in too. There have been quite a few achey legs this week!
Here are a few photos of our fun so far...
