Year 5 is taught by Miss Pennance with learning support being provided by Mrs Samms and Miss Dean
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. There are so many wonderful books to choose from when it comes to stories about the Ancient Greeks that I have to say I found it hard to know which one to pick for us. After reading a couple of books, I went for an adventure story about taking on an ancient daemon, learning to trust your 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. It's a brilliantly humous story full of learning opportunities. To find out what we'll be learning this term, take a look at our Holistic Plan which will provide you with all the details you need.
To help you be organised for the week, you need to know that your P.E. lessons will be taking place on a Tuesday afternoon (1pm -- 3:15pm). Please ensure all PE kits are in school and clearly labelled.
Homework will be set and discussed every Friday.
A weekly list will be sent home containing 5 words (linked to the spelling pattern of the week) to promote deeper learning. You will be expected to write them out in handwriting book to also promote joined up handwriting.
You will also receive a list of statutory spellings to learn each half term.
Weekly SPaG homework will be set from the CPG books
Weekly homework will be set on SPaG.com to accompany learning in class as well.
Weekly MyMaths homework will also be set every Friday and will recap the week's learning, with at least one task to be completed.
Weekly Time Table Rock Stars
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.
Spellings, SPaG, times table testing and reading diary checks take place every Friday morning, so please ensure you bring in all your relevant books each Friday.
