Class 5 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Class 5
Teacher: Miss Palmer
During the Summer Term, the children will be exploring parts of Central America to learn more about Mayan Civilizations! I know they are all very excited to learn about this wonderful topic.
In English, our writing will be based on the book The Paperbag Prince. The children will have the opportunity to explore persuasive writing techniques and research about plastic pollution to support their writing of a persuasive letter.
Our 'Class Novel' is currently The Ship of Shadows by Maria Kuzniar, this will be the basis of our Whole Class Reading sessions on Mondays and Fridays. Class 5 are also excited to read Darkwhispers and Who Let the Gods Out later this term. Our Reading lessons on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will focus on different themes each week!
The Way, the Truth and the Life
Our Way, the Truth and the Life topic for this half term is Life in the Risen Jesus. This topic will give children the opportunity to understand the importance of the Resurrection and the impact it has had on people. We will also explore The Rosary.
Weekly homework will be set on Google Classroom. This will be set every Thursday and is expected to be completed by the following Monday.
Spellings will be set on a Monday and tested the following Monday. These will also be available on Google Classroom.
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. These can be changed in school on a Monday and Thursday.
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.
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.
