Our class teacher this year is Mrs Langford and our Learning Support Assistants are Miss Golder and Miss Conway, who we share between the other Year 5 Class, Hares.
Our P.E. days are Monday and Tuesday 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 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 this half term is ‘Forces.’ We will be exploring all different types of forces and doing some fantastic practical experiments.
Our over-arching topic within our Creative Curriculum is World War Two. We will be exploring what life was like during this time and the impact the war had on people around the world. We are currently in the process of arranging a World War Two themed school trip, so watch this space! In English we will study the books Goodnight Mr Tom and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.
As part of our Creative Curriculum learning, we visited RAF Hendon for the day and learnt about the role of the RAF in WW2 as well as taking part in interactive workshops! We had an amazing day and we were all fantastic role models for the school.
