Welcome to Class 5S
This term our topic is the Anglo-Saxons. We can look forward to an Anglo-Saxon workshop on 16th January where we will learn about Anglo-Saxon daily life, battles and weapons. In literacy, we will write riddles and plan our own myths inspired by Beowulf. In Science, our topic is Properties and Changing Materials. We will investigate how to heat and cool materials as well as exploring bulb brightness. In Art, we will design and create illuminated manuscripts. In P.E. we will create shapes and balancing in PE.
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.
