Welcome to Year 5, we have an exciting term ahead of us becoming INTREPID EXPLORERS. The children will be studying North America, the countries in the continent, culture, languages and geographical features. They will be using their map skills to identify and locate features on a map.
In science we are learning all about Living things and their Habitats. children will study different life cycles and how animals have adapted to suit their environment. We hope to work alongside ECO ACTIVE in Homerton, where children will be working in different habitats and with micro organisms.
This term in Literacy we have started our topic with leaflets as our short burst genre and we will be reading stories from other culture for our longer writing task. The children will learn various writing skills and use them to create their own narrative.
In Maths we have been looking at place value, addition, subtraction and reasoning. Mental arithmetic will be held every Friday and children are encouraged to learn their times tables.
Spellings are handed out weekly and there will be a spelling test every Friday. The children will have an opportunity to practice their spellings in class during one of our handwriting sessions and must continue to practice them at home.
Book bags are checked daily, encourage your child to read daily and ask them about the book. Please ensure their reading books (yellow book) is completed.
PE is on Fridays and for this term only, we are luck enough to have an extra PE session on Tuesdays. All children are required to wear suitable PE kit.
We have only started the term and already the children are getting excited about their two major events that will happen this year. The first our Panto which will take place in December and their favourite topic - RESIDENTIAL trip which will happen in July 2018. More information will be given closer to the dates.
