Welcome to Class 8!
A Message from Miss D'Anzi
Welcome to Class 8 and the Upper Juniors! In year 5 (and 6), there are many exciting opportunities and tough challenges to face, but I’m sure everyone will work hard this year.
Our Topic for this half term:
History: The Ancient Maya
Art and Design: Central and South American art and artists and Mayan art
PE: Netball and basketball
RE: Why do some people believe God exists?
Science: Evolution and Inheritance
PSHE: 'Get Heartsmart'
ICT: Mayan Research
Outdoor Kit (School Yellow PE top, black shorts/jogging bottoms in any colour and trainers/black pumps) will be needed on a Thursday for Netball.
Indoor Kit (School Yellow PE top, black shorts and pumps) will be needed on a Monday for Basketball.
Please note PE kit can be left in school for the half term.
It is important that children have their PE kit ready for lessons as children who do not have kit in school will lose golden time.
English and Maths: Homework will be set on a Friday and is due in on Wednesday. Please help your child to hand their homework in on time as children with late homework will lose golden time.
Spelling: Children will be set spellings on a Thursday to be tested the following Thursday
Reading: Children in year 5 should be reading regularly at home.
We will listen to children read in school at least once a week. Reading books must be brought into school every day and will be checked regularly. Please listen to your child read at home and make comments in their reading record.
For more detailed information on what we will be doing this half term please take a look at our class newsletter.
