Welcome to Hares Class 2019-2020!
Our class teacher this year is Miss Redpath and our Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Hawthorne, Mrs Hart, who we share between the other Year 5 Class, Moles.
Our P.E. days are Monday and Thursday so don’t forget your kit especially trainers as we also need these for our daily mile.
Homework will consist of one piece of English, one piece of Maths (on the MyMaths website) and Spelling practice for our weekly tests which will take place on a Monday. Please make sure you read every night and record this in your reading log, we all want to become Word Millionaires and Book Quiz Superstars! This will be given out on a Friday and is to be returned by the following Wednesday. We also we be doing a lot of times table practice so that we are able gain certificates and appear on Mrs Pargeter’s display. This will have a positive impact on all of our Maths learning!
Our Science topic for the first half of Spring term is 'Living Things and their Habitats,' where we will be investigating the life cycles of different animals, and learning about the primatologist Jane Goodall. After the February half-term we will look at 'Properties and Changes of Materials.' Hares will be actively carrying out a variety of different experiments especially during science week.
Our over-arching topic within our Creative Curriculum is 'Queens, Kings and all important things.' We will be exploring the life and times of keys Monarchs in History and the impact they had on the life we lead today. We will analyse the Tudor dynasty and the significant changes they made to the church and laws in England, whilst also comparing the powers of a Tudor monarch with modern day monarchs. We are all so excited to go on our living history school trip to Hatfield House this term, so watch this space to see what fantastic adventures we had!
During the first half of the Spring Term, we will read and analyse the book, 'Wonder,' which will then change to 'The Spiderwick Chronicles,' after the half term holiday.
