Welcome to Class 5
In Class 5 we follow the National Curriculum. For PSHCE we use Jigsaw. Each term we have a new topic that touches on each area of the curriculum.
That’s Rubbish! Our exciting new topic this term is ‘That’s Rubbish’ and we shall be linking most of our learning in class to this and the historical period of The Stone Age. Whilst doing this, we are also hoping to be in and around Berkeley forging some community links and looking at ways to improve our environment.
Housekeeping information about Year 5:
PE: PE lessons are on Tuesday (my PPA time) and Friday. Please ensure that PE kits are in school at all times and that your child has a refillable water bottle.
Please label all uniform, lunch boxes, PE kits and water bottles with your child’s name.
Home Learning: a grid will be sent home and put on the blog next week with details of when to bring it in and share with the class.
Literacy: This will be set on a weekly basis.
Maths: times tables will be tested regularly and some homework will be set on ‘MyMaths’ online. A letter will be sent home with login details. Please talk to the relevant teacher if you are not able to access the internet.
Reading: Please encourage and listen to your child read at home. Reading is important as it broadens vocabulary, cultivates imagination and also provides information.
In class we shall be reading Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver and this text will also form the basis of some of our Literacy learning.
We are hoping that our WOW assembly this term will be part of our community project and we shall let you know the date as soon as it is set up.
