Firstly, welcome back and happy new year!
We are looking forward to another exciting and busy half term in class 5.
In English we will be covering a range of genres, including instruction writing, mystery and suspense story writing and also writing and performing our own free verse poetry.
In Maths we will continue to work hard on our times tables. We will also be focusing on place value, including decimal numbers, fractions and percentages and towards the end of this half term we will be looking at the properties of shapes.
In Science we will be learning about the Earth and beyond, with some very exciting activities planned!
In Topic we will continue to learn about our class country India, this half term we will be focusing on the rich culture of the country, including traditional Indian dress and Bollywood dancing.
During our life skills sessions we will be focusing on etiquette. The children will be thinking about their aspirations and dreams, we will even be having our own mock interview day where the children will dress in work attire and be given the opportunity to apply the skills they have gained.
Our P.E sessions will be taking place on a Tuesday and a Thursday.
Class 5 spelling and homework grids will follow this post. Homework should be handed in on a Wednesday, there will be a practise spelling test on a Wednesday before the test on a Friday.
We are really looking forward to the half term ahead and thank you for all of your continued support.Back Wolf Rock's blog
