Hello and welcome to London Bridge Class.
In English this half term we will be looking at descriptive settings and information texts. These will be based around the book 'Way Home' by Libby Hathorn.
In Maths we will be covering place value, addition and subtraction. We will also be focusing on times tables
In Creative Links our topic will be Geography and surveying our local area.
Our Science topic is the Earth and Space.
In Year 5 we have begun to learn how to spell the Common Exception Words for Year 5 and 6. It is expected that we will be able to use half of these words appropriately and to spell them accurately in independent writing by the end of year 5. We have also begun to learn words containing the 'ough' letter string as well as those containing silent letters.
Homework Project – Our Library - to be handed in by Tuesday 1st November.
This term has begun with huge excitement in school as we have begun the renovation of our library. So far we have constructed an almost life size Cherry Tree in the atrium, added a raft of brand new books and rebanded all of the existing ones to allow the children more choice together with a faster progression through the levels of books. We are awaiting the delivery of some new seating too.
To enhance this area further we would like the children to complete their project this half term specifically to enhance this area further, with work from them based around their favourite books. This could include a favourite character, setting, plot or indeed the whole story.
There are some ideas below but please feel free to let their imagination run wild and be as creative as you like.
Book box – this is a story displayed within an open shoe box
Models – any kind
Mini books where they have retold their favourite story
Any original stories that they have written and illustrated
