This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing in class this year.
Welcome to Term 1
Welcome to the new school year in Eagles Class! We can’t wait to begin our new year by getting settled into our new routines and timetables. The first few weeks are all about coming together and recovery after a difficult few months. The children will be eased gently into normal school activities and will be assessed to see where our ‘gaps’ and strengths lie. We will then work from there supporting as needed.
Our exciting topic this term is “What if I lived in South Africa?” which will involve looking at the varied countries and features of the continent of Africa, and with a focus on South Africa. As a Geography based topic we will learn about the geography of the planet; including where the Equator, tropics and polar regions are. Within English we will work on a biography of Nelson Mandela and a ‘big write’ which will involve the children developing their character description and scene setting writing skills.
Our SPaG (spelling grammar and punctuation) recaps on last year now working on the Y5 curriculum. In Maths we are going to be revisiting basic skills and Place Value, then working on addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. The popular weekly Times tables challenge will begin and the children will challenge themselves to improve by half term!
Times tables are key to being able to access the Y5 Maths curriculum, so any extra practise completed at home will be extremely useful! Make the most of our school access to Timestables Rockstars and Maths Prodigy online at home!
Our Science this term is “Properties and changes of Materials”. The class will be investigating the different properties of materials, separating mixtures and reversible/irreversible changes.
Below you will find links and documents to work for the pupils to complete at home.
Many of the suggested generic links you will find under the 'School Closure' section of the school website, located here.
