Welcome to what is going to be an amazing 2022! I am very excited to be teaching you all this year and what progress and fun we are going to have this year.
We have been reestablishing our school routines again, below are a few things to remember:
PE is on Mondays. However, you can bring your PE kit in on Monday and leave it in the cloakroom for the week. You must take it home at the end of the week.
Please bring in your school water bottle, reading record and reading book, everyday.
You should be reading at home as well as practising times tables and the weekly spelling at homes. Our spelling and times tables tests will be every Friday.
In Year 5 we have begun to learn how to spell the Common Exception Words for Year 5 and 6 and vocabulary relating to our handwriting and text. 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. Each week, pupils will have a spelling list in their reading records and be expected to learn these words for Friday.
In class at the end of the day we read together. Currently, we are reading 'Who let the Gods out' by Maz Evans. This books fits with our Connected Curriculum work on the Ancient Greeks and consolidates understanding of the Gods in a fun way.
In English this half term, we are linking myths and legends to our Connected Curriculum theme of Ancient Greeks and creating our versions of King Midas and the golden touch. This also supports our PSHE by covering greed and morals. We started the English work by discovering a crime scene and trying to work out who could have left gold everywhere they went 2000 years ago.
We're continuing our amazing maths journey this year, using Power Maths to support our reasoning and problem solving. We have been regularly completing 'fluent in 5' to recap on the maths we have learnt since September and we are starting the year with multiplication and division operations. We will then move on to perimeter and area.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
