Welcome all to Class BM
Welcome all to Year 5 - Autumn.
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. 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.
Don't forget you can track our progress throughout the term on Twitter @firsprimarysale.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mr Tumilty, Mrs Morgans & Mrs Lawrence.
A trip down memory lane
New year 6 students are sometimes sad that their memories are lost (from the website) when a new class moves up to year 5. So that their hard work and effort is not lost and so that you have a sample of the types of things and activities that you may have in store this year, please see a taster of these below....
Below are three Class DT girls who performed a song they wrote as part of a whole-school home learning task for anti-bullying week.
