Year 5 is taught by Miss Pennance with learning support being provided by Mrs Whittingham
Welcome to Year 5! It's going to be a great year, and I can't wait to get the term started and see what adventures await us.
So, let's talk about where our Learning Journey is going to take us this term. This term we will be learning about . . . The Ancient Greeks! We will be diving into the myths and legends linked to the era and finding out about the daily life of the people who lived during this time. Our class story is about a normal boy taking on an ancient daemon, learning to trust his friends and finding the courage to take the right path even when it's the difficult one. Our book is called 'Who Let the God's Out' by Maz Evans. As always, all our work this term has been inspired by our class story, so if you want more details about what we are learning this term, take a look at the Holistic Plan.
I am very excited about this term and I hope you are too. Remember to keep working hard, keep being resilient and keep trying your best because that's what is most important.
To help you be organised for the week, you need to know that your P.E. lessons will be taking place on a Wednesday morning for 1 hour. Please ensure all PE kits are in school and clearly labelled.
Homework will be set and discussed every Friday.
Weekly homework will be set on SPaG.com to accompany learning in class as well.
TT Rockstars is a great way to learn your times tables, so please make sure you are logging on an practicing them at least three times a week.
Even though you are in Year 5, it is still vital to keep reading. Please record all reading in your reading diaries every week. I would like to see at least three entries.
You will be given a writing bingo board. When you have completed a writing piece, bring it in to share with the class.
