Welcome to class 5’s page!
Our project this term is ‘What’s beyond planet Earth?’ focusing on the space and everything that it contains We will be looking at all of the current news about space exploration, making space models and learning all about our home planet. We will be hooked into our project by making model rockets, clay moons, papier mache NASA helmets; learning more about astronauts, including their training and their eating; watching NASA Tv and keeping up-to-date with current space exploration, finding out about and re-creating star constellations and much more!
We would love to see more reading in Class 5. Your child will get a prizes for reading at home – these rewards follow our new ‘rainbow reading’ awards which will see a prize for every 30 reads completed. Please listen your child read between 3 times a week and record every time you read with them in their reading diaries so we can keep a record. Please bring your books into school every Monday.
Your child will be given a spelling test and a times table test every Friday morning, so they need to be practising these throughout the week. Children receive house points for full marks in spellings and passing their times table test.
Your child is given homework to complete every Friday and this will need to be returned in school the following Thursday. They also have 6 pieces of project homework to complete. We love to see these as they are always amazing – they go straight up on our project display in the classroom for everybody to see. You have until the end of term to complete all six.
PE lessons are every Wednesday this half term, so please make sure your child is wearing their PE kit to school every Wednesday.
We will be swimming every Friday, so children need to come with their swimming kits on under their uniform and a spare pair of underwear in their bags. Please make sure you have completed a permission letter for goggles if you wish your child to wear these in the pool. No jewellery must be worn, and long hair must be securely tied back.
If you need to know anything else or need to speak with a member of staff, please come and see us.
Miss Wheeler and Mr Kingham.
