I know that starting a new school year in a new class with a new teacher can be daunting. Be assured that you are in good hands and I have many exciting, fun and challenging activities that will keep you engaged this term and help you to grow your brain. Thank you to all those children who have introduced their parents/ guardians to me. Everyone feels better when they can put a face to a name. If I haven't managed to see you yet, I am on the playground every evening; come and say hello!
I will attach our newsletter with full details below, but curriculum highlights this term include:
Place Value and Written methods
Written addition and subtraction
Writing Kenning poetry, riddle-like phrases used by Vikings and Anglo-Saxons
Our topic this term is The Vikings. We will be doing all manner of exciting things including learning about:
Geography and History:
We expect children to read at home on a regular basis in year 5 and keep practising the rapid recall of their times tables up to 12x12. Each week, children will receive a piece of literacy homelearning, a piece of maths homelearning and fifteen spellings to learn. Homelearning is usually given out on a Friday and should be returned no later than Wednesday to enable us to mark and feedback.
Year 5 are Mindset Masters.
