Kingfishers Class Teacher: Mrs Johnson-Motyl
Teaching Assistant: Mrs White
This week a few of year 5 attended a Sports Leaders day where they learnt the benefits of physical exercise and how to organise and structure an activity. The knowledge they gained will be useful for them and the school moving forward.
This coming term we will be looking at Multiplication and Division. We have noticed that not all children are accessing TT Rockstars, please remember this is part of the weekly homework. Our times table skills will be required this term to ensure we are successfully completing the work. We will then be looking at Fractions, Percentages and Decimals where again timetables knowledge will be paramount. The year 5 class teachers will be allocating Dojos to regular users of TT Rockstars.
English this term will be linked closely with our Topic of the Term - Ancient Greece, where we will be looking at Ancient Greek Gods and Goddesses, Greek Myths, Life in Ancient Greece whilst also reviewing the impact of Anceint Greece in the modern world. Closely linked to this we will be, as a class, reading 'Who let the Gods out' by Maz Evans.
Science we will be looking at the Earth and Space understanding the movement of Earth and other planets, within the solar system, relative to the sun. Explain the moons movement relative to Earth, how the day and night apparent movement of the sun across the sky works and why planets are relative spherical bodies.
French we will be looking and learning about ourselves and in RE we will be reviewing what Christmas means to Christians. Then in PE this term we will be looking at High 5 Netball and Dance.
