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.
Autumn Term Learning Journey 2020 : Who's land is it?
The Learning Journey approach means that all aspects of the curriculum combine to build a really creative curriculum. This term our Learning Journey is ''Who’s land is it?"
Within this topic we will be looking at many different settlers in our country starting with Celts. We will look at the Roman invasion and in the second half of term we will look at their retreat back to Rome and the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons and then Vikings.
Our English curriculum is linked with our Learning Journey. We will focus on a variety of text types during the term. This will include descriptive writing, newspaper articles, information texts and persuasive writing.
In Maths we will be focusing on place value; multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1,000; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division; roman numerals and negative numbers.
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.
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.
