Well done to all the children who applied to become class or school members, you were all fantastic and gave very confident speeches.
we are pleased to announce that our school council members are: Gabi and Clayton
The children are enjoying learning about the Ancient Egyptians. In science this week they have been learning about the ancient art of mummification.
The children worked in groups to mummify tomatoes - let’s see what happens to them at the end of the term.
We hope you’ve had a lovely summer break and are ready to get back to school.
This term, in our topic, we will be learning all about the Ancient Egyptians, looking at their lifestyle, the pharaohs and the different gods and goddesses.
In English we will be creating fact files about different aspects of Ancient Egyptian life, we will also be writing diaries based on the discovery of King Tutankhamen,s tomb and lastly creating fantasy stories about Ancient Egypt.
In Maths we will be re-visiting place value, using The White Rose resources. The rest of the term will be focusing on application of these skills looking at the four operations.
In Science we will be looking at mummification and the changes which happen as we grow older.
Our P.E will take place on a Thursday morning, please send your child to school in their P.E. kit with their school uniform in a bag.
Please remember to send your child in with a named water bottle, which needs to be taken home daily.
Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact any of the year 5 team.
In year 5, homework is set on a Friday and is returned on a Thursday.
Your child will have the following pieces of homework every week:
reading (5 times at least a week); English, based on what they have been learning during the week; Maths, based on what they have been learning during the week; spellings.
Reading is crucial to your child’s learning as it provides the children with the opportunity to learn new words and provide the children with the opportunity to see how different authors write.
It is an expectation that the children write in their own reading logs explaining what they have enjoyed about the book they have been reading; describing the characters and setting; explaining what has surprised them and any other comments they would like to write about the text.
