Welcome to Class 5 - Mrs Jeffrey

Class 5

 PE Kits: PE will be on a Wednesday and Thursday.  PE kits will be sent home to be washed at half term.  Kits and pumps should be named.  

Reading: The children are expected to read independently at least three times a week and are encouraged to read more where possible.  Children can record their own reading, however, we would appreciate it if you could initial to confirm that the reading is actually taking place, as well as a signature at the end of the week.  You can also log any concerns that you may have in the planner. It would be advisable if you could listen to your child read aloud once per week to help discuss meanings of words and help with understanding.

Homework: will be given out on a Wednesday to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday.  Your child will be expected to complete Maths or SPAG homework in addition to times tables practice and reading every week.

English: In English we will use a variety of good quality texts to encourage the children to produce good quality writing.  Texts will include Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz along with a range of poetry including the Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carroll.  As a class we will be writing for lots of different purposes and we will be looking at different styles of writing.  We will encourage the children to widen their vocabulary and investigate the meanings and origins of words as well as their range of punctuation. 

Maths: In Maths we will be covering place value including reading, writing, comparing and rounding numbers to 1,000,000, use of the four operations to include addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, reading tables and graphs and interpreting data as well as calculating perimeter and area.

Foundation: Earth and Space.  The children will learn to describe the movement of the Earth, and other planets, relative to the Sun in the solar system, describe the movement of the Moon relative to the Earth, describe the Sun, Earth and Moon as approximately spherical bodies and use the idea of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night and the apparent movement of the sun across the sky.

In R.E, the unit covered initially will be Guidance in our lives. The children will extend their knowledge and understanding of the Christian and Hindu religions including the importance of scriptures.  After half term, the children will focus on the Christmas story. In this unit, the children review the events of the Christmas story with an emphasis on God’s message of peace on earth and how this is shown in the church building.

In Art the children will look at a range of architectures such as Gaudi and his major artworks, focusing on Barcelona architecture.  They will use pencil and charcoal to create different dimensions.

The history topic is the Maya Civilisation.  The children will make Mayan and Anglo-Saxon comparisons, identify Maya cities and layouts, research into the Maya gods, use the number system, research farming, food and religion.

P.E. - One session per week is provided by an outside agency where the children will participate in athletic activities. The second session will focus on the key skills that can be applied in a variety of different sports/activities.

Music – The children have 10 weeks of bucket drumming with Mr Clarke from Boteler High school.  They will learn to play a range of songs and will perform to the parents during an end of term assembly.
