A warm welcome back to everyone. I hope that you all had a fantastic Summer and are refreshed and ready to start a new year.
Our topic this term is called: Gallery Rebels. Children will be learning about the lives and work of the Impressionist artists. The topic will encompass English, Art, and Geography. During innovate week they will have the opportunity to explore, compare and imitate the life and work of a contrasting artist.
This term we are going to focus on place value up to 6 digits: the value of digits in a number, how to read and write numbers in order, rounding and addition and subtraction. Terror tables will be practised every day and I would be grateful if you could work with your child to help them learn their tables.
Our focus is electricity. We will be looking at how circuits work, their components and how they can be changed.
In R.E, Fleming class are looking at the rites of passage of a follower of Judaism. This will include birth, Bar Mitzvah and a looking at the customs of a Jewish wedding.
Our P.E. sessions will take place on Thursday and every child must have a named P.E. kit in school.
It would be wonderful if you could read together with your child every day. This does not have to be for very long, 10 minutes is enough. You can read with them, listen to them or read to them. Please write a comment in their reading record when you read with them. If you would like any support or guidance on reading with your child please come and see me.
Spellings will be given out each Friday and children will be tested on Thursdays. In Year 5 children are expected to put the words in sentences and write dictated sentences from memory.
It is important that children have a secure grasp of their times tables so please encourage your child to practise these.
This will allow children the opportunity to research and be creative. It would be wonderful if everyone could complete at least 1 challenge.
Thank you for all your support. If you have any queries or concerns please contact the office to make an appointment to discuss them with me.
