Welcome to Class 5S
This term our topic is the Victorians. We will be researching Queen Victoria and learning all about life in the Victorian era. We will also be designing and creating Victorian toys and focusing on the Victorian artist William Morris. In literacy we will be using Oliver Twist as our focus text. We will use this text for inspiration to write personification poetry as well as a newspaper report and character and setting descriptions.
In maths we will be working on number and place value and the four operations. Our science topic will be about Space and the Solar System followed by Forces.
Our current spelling focus will be updated on the spelling page and children are encouraged to practice these at home. There are also maths games which will be updated throughout the term.
Photos of the activities we are completing in class will regularly be added to the subpages below.
Our first day back at school is Tuesday 5th September. Remember your PE kit, water bottle and pencil case. We look forward to seeing your Victorian projects.
Homework for Maths and Literacy is set on a Friday and should be completed by the following Thursday. The children all now have their own usernames and passwords for MyMaths and The First News Website. If there are any technical problems please let me know.
Along with reading and learning your spellings, make sure you practice times tables at least 3 times per week. In year 5, children should know their times tables up to 12x12. This half term revise all of your times tables by playing games and singing songs. After half-term we will start learning the division facts that link to times tables.
