Class 5 2017 - 2018

 

Welcome to Class 5

 

Teacher: Mrs Grealis                                   

We are now in the final term of the year and it is going to be a busy one!

 

Our Learning

Creative

During Summer Term, our creative topic will be focussed around Charles Darwin, where we will be exploring the different countries that he visited on his voyage aboard H.M.S. Beagle, as well as looking at the discoveries that he made. Whilst focussing on Darwin's life, we will be visiting his birthplace, Shrewsbury, to take part in some workshops to help us write our biographies. 

The Way, the Truth and the Life

Our Way, the Truth and the Life topic for this half term is Inspirational People, where the children will learn about what it means to be an inspirational person, research saints and hear stories about Saint Josephine Bakhita and Father Damien.

Spellings

The children will bring a list of new spellings home each Friday to practice for the following Friday. There are many different strategies that the children could use to help them remember their spellings and a list of these can be downloaded below. Test books will be brought home each Friday so that results and progress can be shared with parents/carers. These books should be returned to school on a Monday morning.

Times Tables

Mixed multiplication tests will also take place each Friday.T In addition to this, we have recently signed up to Times Tables Rockstars, an online multipication resource that the children can access at home. 

Homework

Maths and English homework will be set each Thursday and should be completed by Monday morning. My Maths may be set for homework, or it can be used to support home learning. 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. A list of recommended texts can be downloaded below. We encourage the children to read a variety of genres, including newspapers for children eg. First News.

Music

We are extremely lucky this year to have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument with Wider Opportunities. Our music lesson takes place on a Thursday morning, therefore cellos, violins and music folders must be in school on this day. Last week, we were able to join other schools in CWAC and the surrounding areas to play at Bridgewater Hall in Manchester with the Halle Orchestra - what an incredible experience that was!

P.E.

As well as taking part in the Daily Mile each afternoon, our main P.E. lesson will continue to take place on a Thursday afternoon. Full P.E. kits, which are clearly labelled, must be in school on this day. District Sports is coming up towards the end of June, too!

Alternatively, I am available at the end of most afternoons for a brief chat; if a longer conversation is required, an appointment can be made at the school office for a mutually convenient time.
