Class Teacher - Mrs A Jarvis.
Welcome to the Turtles class.
Hello and welcome to Turtles class! This page will give you all the information you need about what is happening in our class, such as PE days, homework, trips, events and the areas that we will be learning about. We are looking forward to a brilliant year in year 5!
The overall theme for our learning in term 1 will be ‘Coastlines’. We will learn about the 1953 floods in history and our first English unit will revolve around a novel called ‘Song of the Dolphin Boy’. We will also be creating our own model sea defences as part of our design and technology lessons. In geography, we will be learning about how we can protect our environment and our science work will focus on forces. Our computing lessons will focus on networking and in RE we will be learning about the importance of the Qur’an to Muslims.
PE days – These will be Tuesdays (outdoor and adventurous activities) and Wednesdays (football). As usual, please come to school in your PE kit on those days, with earrings removed.
Homework – This will be set on the websites MyMaths and Spag.com. A new task will be set on each site every Sunday evening and needs to be completed by the following Sunday. Please keep reading every day (we have lots of books in the classroom for you to take home!) and practicing times tables to earn Prove-it awards. We will still have access to TT rock stars to help you practice these. Reminders of your logins for all these sites will be sent home in the first week – please keep them in a safe place!
If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to Mrs Jarvis, Mrs Heppenstall or Mrs Gilligan and we will be happy to help. We are looking forward to a brilliant year with you all!
