The Eagles class is taught by Mr Aspinall and supported by Mrs Adams and Mrs Sargeant.
Well, Christmas is over, but at least we get to come back to school!
In maths, we will be finishing off our multiplication and division topic before heading into fractions. Multiplication and division is mainly focused on the column method of multiplication (short multiplication) and the bus stop method (short division) for Year 5. Good times tables practise is very important for doing well with these, so get practising! The more practise they get of their times tables, the better!
In Literacy, we will be reading Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief and learning about Greek myths and legends, eventually writing out own stories in that style. The Percy Jackson books are all about ancient Greece, so feel free to do your own research and find out all about the Greek myths.
Our topic work for Term 3 will revolve around Greece, but not just ancient Greece. We will also be looking at modern Greece and the geography of the country. Greece has impacted the world in a wide range of ways, from the origins of democracy, early philosophers, warfare, fables and all that comes from being an early civilisation.
Forest School starts anew this term and will be done on alternate Mondays. Bring in those kits!
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.
