Welcome to Class 5
Croeso i Dosbarth 5
Teacher: Miss Jones
TA: Mrs Woods
Welcome back to school Year 5! We have lots of interesting and new things to learn this year.
Our new Topic: Brilliant Britain!
This Term our Topic is Brilliant Britain!
We are very excited to be learning all about Britain and our amazing history. During the first half of the term, we will be learning all about WWII. We will be looking at life on the home front, leadership, propaganda, human rights, evacuation and significant events throughout. For the second half of the term, we will be learning about the Commonwealth, the monarchy and much more. Our pupils will lead the learning and help us to design our bespoke curriculum within our classroom.
Thank you -Miss Jones and Mrs Woods.
Our PE sessions will be on a Monday afternoon.
Please remember to come dressed in your P.E. clothes (a school t-shirt, joggers/leggings and trainers as P.E. might be outdoors) as we are unable to change in school at the moment
Reading will take place in school, as usual, but as we cannot send books home at the moment, you can access reading materials on Oxford Owl and on audio apps such as Epic and audible.
Ongoing homework should be to focus on revising questions from Big Maths, home reading and the homework menu sheet (to follow).
When solving reasoning questions we encourage the children to use the RUCSAC method;
R- Read the question carefully twice, what is the important information?
U- Understand the question. What do you have to find out?
C- Choose the right operation (x-+÷) and method of calculation.
S- Solve the problem! Make sure you follow all the steps.
A- Answer- Have you answered the question? What were you meant to find out?
C- Check your answer. If possible use the inverse operation.
