Welcome to Class 4 – Spring 2020
Welcome to our class 4 page! Here you will find useful information about the topics we are studying this year and links to useful websites to support the children’s learning. This year, Year 5 work in class 4 and the topic this term is Meet the Ancestors where we will be exploring The Anglo Saxons and Vikings in history. We will explore land use in geography and how this has changed over time. We will also explore the concept of variation, adaptation and evolution in science.
Children are given homework on a Friday each week and the children need to hand it in by Wednesday at the latest. If they need some help with their homework, they need to bring it on a Monday or Tuesday and work in assembly time with myself. Year 5 will have both English and Maths homework each week to complete.
These are given out on a Monday to be learnt for a test on a Friday. The children will be learning common exception words at home this year and other spelling patterns will be learnt at school. It is helpful if they practise every night for 5 – 10 minutes.
Year 5 will have PE on a Thursday and Friday. For PE they need to have a white plain t-shirt and black/blue school shorts in school. They also need suitable footwear including socks.
Children have a reading book and diary that they need to bring into school every day. Children receive raffle tickets if they read at home with an adult. Many of the Year 5 children also complete reading plus three times a week for 30 minutes each session and other children access the accelerated reading scheme. They are also able to work on this at home with their login and password. The link to the site is below.
