Welcome to Class 5

Welcome back to class 5 for the remainder of the Autumn term.  I hope you have all enjoyed the half term break and that the children are all ready to continue the hard work that they have started this year.  As ever, we will be working together to really challenge the children to reach their full potential across the curriculum. 

For the remainder of this term, the children will continue to learn a great deal of new and exciting things.  In Literacy, we will by studying a book called 'Journey to Jo'Burg' by Beverley Naidoo.  It is a wonderful book that I know the children are going to thoroughly enjoy; hopefully broadening their understanding of different cultures along the way.  In Maths, we will be learning about number and place value including understanding the value of digits within a number, rounding numbers up to 1,000,000 and solving word and practical problems.  We will also be focussing on measurement, converting between different units of measure and using all four operations to solve problems involving measure.  We will, as always, be covering a range of other subjects including Properties of Materials in Science; understanding how volcanoes affected the lives of the Hiemaey in Geography and spreadsheets in Computing.  Please take a look at our curriculum overview for this half term for a full breakdown of the subjects the children will be learning about. 

As you can see, we have an awful lot to do and it is vital that the children return to school with a positive attitude and willingness to learn.  If they can do this, I look forward to watching them grow and improve personally and collectively throughout the remainder of the term.

Should you have any questions or concerns that you wish to discuss with me, please do not hesitate to come and speak to me or a member of the Year 5 team.
