Welcome to Yellow Class!
Yellow Class is a class of ambitious, hardworking year 5 pupils.
Year 5 is jam-packed with lots of learning and exciting lessons. There is so much to learn and we work hard to understand new things, practise our skills and gain a better understanding of the world around us.
We are working on becoming more independent and responsible as well as getting better at working with others and contributing to a team.
Summer Term Learning Journey 2021
The Learning Journey approach means that all aspects of the curriculum combine to build a really creative curriculum. This term our Learning Journey is "Around the world in 80 days". We will be visiting different places and learning about them as we go.
We will be learning about the physical and human geography of a variety of different places, we can learn about the different religions people follow, learning (and possibly making) some of the traditional foods, dances, artwork and music. There are lots of possibilities!
Our English curriculum is linked with our Learning Journey. We will focus on a variety of text types during the term. This will include narrative writing, balanced arguments and persuasive texts.
In Maths we will be focusing on all things geometry! This includes: angles, shapes, translation, co-ordinates, reflection. Towards the end of term we will be looking at time and statistics.
PE is on Monday and Thursday but it is important to ensure kit is in all week in case of timetable changes.
Spellings will be given every week on a Friday for a test on Thursday.
Times tables should now be practised regularly through Times Table Rockstars.
Maths or Grammar home learning will be set on a Friday, ready to be handed in on Thursday via Seesaw.
Reading homework will be set on a Friday with comprehension questions. Maths, Grammar and Reading homework should be handed in with a photograph and or comment via Seesaw, marked by a parent or guardian to show it has been supported – answers are in the back of the relevant books.
Children are expected to read every night and be heard by an adult at least 3 times a week. Please sign their homework diary to record this is being done.
Please get in touch if there is anything you wish to discuss.
