Welcome to Class 5


Teacher: Miss Palmer                                   

                          Our Learning                               


During Autumn Term, the children will be exploring North America! I know they are very excited to learn all about this wonderful continent, particularly USA!

In English, our writing will be based on the book Queen of the Falls. This fantastic text is all about Annie Edson Taylor- the first person to survive a trip down Niagara Falls!

Holes: Sachar, Louis: 9781408865231: Books   Brightstorm: A Sky-Ship Adventure Sky Ship Adventure 1:  Hardy, Vashti: Books

Our 'Class Novel' is currently Holes by Louis Sachar, this will be the basis of our Whole Class Reading sessions on Mondays and Fridays. Our Reading lessons on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will focus on different themes! Our next 'Class Novel' will be Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy and we are incredibly lucky that we have received a postcard from her!                                                            

The Way, the Truth and the Life Bible and cross sketch - Stock Vector , #SPONSORED, #cross, #Bible,  #sketch, #Vector #AD | Bible drawing, Cross drawing, Christian drawings

Our Way, the Truth and the Life topic for this half term is Gifts from God. This is a truly beautiful topic to begin our learning this year. Children will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and learn all about how God created our wonderful planet. We will also explore why it is so important that we look after our planet.  




Daily reading is a key priority in primary school and I ask that the children read for at least 10 minutes each evening to develop their fluency and comprehension skills. Every child will be able to bring home a reading book from school.

I have created every child in Class 5 an account of Read Theory. This is a fantastic reading comprehension site that can be used regularly by the children.



Class 5 are fortunate enough to be able to learn to play the violin. Music lessons will take place on a Monday 9am-10am. Children will be able to bring their violin home, but must remember it on a Monday as there are no spares available. 


As well as taking part in the Daily Mile each day, on our new track, our main P.E. lesson will take place every week on a Thursday. As stated in the letter sent home, children should come to school on a Thursday in their full P.E. kits, which are clearly labelled, this includes appropriate footwear. Jewellery, including earrings, must not be worn during PE days.


Important Dates:  

Monday 28th September 2020 - Violin lessons begin



I am always happy to discuss any worries, concerns or general queries you may have.  Please make contact through the school office and it will be passed onto me ASAP.
