The Eagles class is taught by Mr Aspinall and supported by Mrs Adams and Mrs Sargeant.
Welcome back for Term 4 everyone!
In maths, we will be finishing off the happiest of all subjects: fractions. Fractions is a big topic in Year 5 and covers a wide range of things, from adding and subtracting fractions, to multiplying fractions...to comparing fractions...to converting fractions... Lots of fractions. As strange as it sounds, the best practise is, as always: practise those times tables! The more practise they get of their times tables, the better! And: 'Make the denominators the same!'
In Literacy, we will be reading Holes by Louis Sachar as part of our crime and punishment topic. Holes follows the story of Stanley Yelnats IV as he gets punished for a crime that he didn't commit.
Our topic work for Term 4 will revolve around crime and punishment and is aptly named 'Crime and Punishment'. We will be learning about how criminals were punished throughout history as well as how people have challenged the law at various points in the past. Each week, children will be learning about a different major event related to these concepts, such as the Gunpowder Plot, the Civil Rights Movement and the Suffragettes.
P.E. is on Tuesdays. Please make sure that children have their P.E. kits in school.
Homework will consist of spellings and MyMaths. These will be set every Friday and expected to be completed by the following Friday. Children should also be regularly reading in their own time. Reading is an essential life skill and regular practise as a child will help set them up for life.
Please feel free to pop in either in the morning or after school if you have any concerns. I will be more than happy to help in any way possible.
