Keep an eye out on our Dojo pages for regular updates of goings-on in class and in school.
Homework is given out every Friday and is collected the following Friday. This homework is generally linked to topics the children have been learning in school. Each week children get Numeracy, Literacy and Spelling; along with this, children are expected to read every night and learn their times tables every night, which are in the back of their school planners.
Children have P.E. on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon. Their kits are expected to be in school on those days. P.E. kits should consist of: shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms, t-shirt and appropriate footwear eg. trainers or pumps.
In Literacy this term we have been studying Classic Narrative Poetry where we looked at poetry by Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll and Alfred Noyes 'The Highway Man'. Classic Narrative Poems are poems by well known poets from the past that have stood the test of time and are therefore generally acknowledged to be great and valuable pieces of writing.
Next term we will be studying Greek Myths and Legends!
In Numeracy this term we are learning all about fractions, decimals and percentages. Along with this children are asked to continue practising their times tables both at home and at school.
Children can practise their times tables at home using Times Tables Rockstars which they are familiar with.
In our religion lessons this term we have been looking at Inspirational People and what it means to be inspirational. We have focused on our Lenten journey through making Lenten promises, attending mass for Ash Wednesday, Y5 Lenten mass in school and Holy Week Mass, as well as weekly assemblies, collective worships, Wednesday Word and writing about the Easter Story.
