Welcome to Class 5



In Literacy, we will continue to use short animations to inspire our writing.  We will make inferences and predictions, using clues. We will also be reading texts and extracts about Space and creating pieces of writing for different purposes. 


In Computing, we will continue to develop our publishing and editing skills, creating presentations based on our Topic work. We will also be learning about cyberbullying and writing ‘Agony Aunt’ letters of advice. 


In Maths, we will be focusing on decimals. We will be recapping the place value of digits up to 2 decimal places and answering a variety of reasoning problems. We will also be ordering and comparing decimals, as well as rounding them. If you would like to find out more about the methods your child will be using in class, please speak to Miss Khan. 


Weekly Maths, Literacy and spellings will be given weekly. Please ensure your child learns their spellings ready for their test on Friday. Please also ensure that your child completes their half-termly project; we received some fantastic creations for our Mayan topic, including home-baking! It is also very important that your child reads 3 times a week at home and brings their Reading Record to school every day. Thank you for your cooperation. 


In PE, we will continue to have lessons delivered by a specialist PE coach. We will carry on playing striking and fielding games. Fingers crossed the weather will be beautiful so we can play outside!


We will be starting our new Space topic this half-term! We will learn the order of the planets in the Solar System and learn about distances between different planets from the Sun. We will also create a human solar system. Watch this space for details of some very exciting visitors, too.
