Hello Moles Class!
I hope that you are all keeping safe and well.
As you know, the last few months have been very different to what we are normally used to. Many of us have had to change our daily routine, the way we socialise and how we learn. Believe it or not, it has been very surreal for us teachers too! However, throughout this time, Year 5 Hares and Moles class have WOWED us with their effort and level of learning taking place at home or in school.
We have been so impressed with all that you have achieved during lockdown that we would like to share just a few of many amazing pieces of work with you.
These are just a snippet of what you have completed and I will be uploading more very soon! Well done to you all, you have made me very proud!
Keep working hard and doing the best you can. Do not forget that you can speak to Mrs Langford if you have any concerns by email Mrs Langford or calling the school office. The next few weeks are going to be challenging so just remember, work hard, stay safe, be kind and more importantly enjoy quality time with the people you love.
Oh by the way, I would love to see some images of the fun things you have completed in lockdown so don't forget to forward them to me.
See as many of you as possible on our weekly Wednesday at 11.30 Zoom session.
Thank you to you all for your continued support.
Our class teacher this year is Mrs Langford and our Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Rowe, Mrs Hart, who we share between the other Year 5 Class, Hares. We also have Mrs Walker on a Wednesday,Thursday and Friday morning.
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 (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,' then we look at 'Properties and Changes of Materials.'
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.
Trip to Whipsnade Zoo
In January, Moles Class were lucky enough to go to Whipsnade Zoo and take part in one of their Educational workshops. We then were able to explore all the animals around the zoo and look at their differing habitats. All of the children behaved fantastically and this was reinforced with several compliments from members of the public. I am super proud of all of them, well done Moles!
A lot of fun was had by all, here are some of the pictures from the visit.
