Happy New Year, Year 5.
I hope that you have enjoyed reading your Christmas book. Please let me know if you would recommend it to a friend in our class.
We have a busy term ahead of us and we will be using Google Classroom as our platform for learning. Lessons will be uploaded alongside challenges on Sumdog and TTRS. Please login every day to receive your feedback and next task.
Please continue to learn your spellings each week and read regularly and record this in your home Home-School Sharer book.
In English, we will continue with our spring term plans, starting with a unit on persuasive writing. Weekly reading comprehensions and grammar work will support the writing tasks throughout the term.
For revision and extension you can access the Oak Academy grammar activities (All subjects by year group - Oak National Academy (thenational.academy)).
In maths, we will continue the learning journey following the White Rose plans starting with multiplication and division before moving onto a unit of work on fractions. Each day, the White Rose videos and relevant resources will be shared online for you to access. In addition, I will set Sumdog and TT Rockstars challenges which can be accessed via the apps.
For further challenge and revision, the weekly schedules from the Oak National Academy provide excellent videos and support materials.
This term we are studying the Great Fire of London and we will share with you our artwork and Pudding Lane models on Google Classroom. Our artist this term is Rembrandt and we shall be examining his paintings and finding out about his life. We will still do our “Daily Mile” for exercise and will tune into Joe Wicks PE.
The homework grid for this term has been shared on the website and Google Classroom which will give you the chance to be creative. I am looking forward to seeing your entries.
