Come and have a look at our class page to celebrate the hard work, fantastic creativity and achievements in our class!
You will also find important notices and links to useful websites and videos to further support your child’s learning at home.
Reading books will be changed every day after children have read their book and completed their reading quiz. Please ensure your child reads at least three times a week and sign their reading record book each time they have read. Each read earns two house points, so there is a maximum of 14 house points on offer each week! Also, if children receive a high score on their reading quiz they will go up our reading rocket to win prizes and move onto a higher reading band.
Homework is handed out every Friday to be completed by the following Thursay. Children have a homework bookmark in their books and each time homework is completed they receive a stamp on their bookmark. When the bookmark is full, children can collect a prize!
Spellings and Times Table Test
Times Tables Speed Test will be every Tuesday and Spelling Tests are on a Friday.
Children will be given their new spelling rule on a Monday and have the opportunity to practice them each morning in class through various activities. Children are also expected to practice these spellings and rules at home to further embed this knowledge.
PE will be every Thursday afternoon this half-term and children will be taking part in Gymnastics. Please ensure children have the correct PE Kit (white top, black shorts and black PE pumps). PE kits should stay in school and will be sent home at the end of each half-term to be washed.
Our Future Aspirations
In PSHE, we discussed gender stereotypes and our career aspirations. This huge poster is displayed outside our classroom door to motivate and inspire us every day...
This half-term our topic is...
Have a look at some of our fantastic Science and Geography work.
So far we have looked at minibeasts around the world, researched deadly minibeasts and written a non-chronological report describing our interesting facts.
Minibeast Hunt! 02/10/17
Today we went to the reception area to investigate invertebrates!
We made predictions and created a tally chart of our findings to use for our scientific data next week. We also used our knowledge of micro-habitats to find many different types of minibeasts.
Our Class Assembly!
International Peace Day
I am so proud of all the children in 5D for their outstanding and heartfelt performance in their school assembly. The children worked hard to create their own posters, poems and ideas and showed respect and understanding of peace around the world.
Our Eid Party 14/09/17
5D enjoyed a fantastic party with delicious food, music and games. Children also wrote their own recounts of their Eid celebrations at home and shared these with their peers.
Our Reading Area
5D drew their favourite book cover to hang proudly over our reading area and are using the reading rocket to show their effort in Accelerated Reading quizzes.
Here are the links to some of the exciting websites that children use in school to support their reading, comprehension skills and numeracy. Children will have their own passwords and I will be able to monitor their understanding to support them further.
