Welcome to Year 5 Class!
Spring Term 2019
Welcome back to year 5! We hope that you had a wonderful holiday and that the children are ready for their second term in 5U.
This term, our topics will be Ancient Greece and the geography of Greece. We will be looking at the belief systems, ways of life and the landscape of modern day Greece.
In English, will be read Maz Evan's Who Let the Gods Out? in Guided Reading. We will be studying the poem The Highwayman and using this to write an account of one of the characters and will also be writing our own myths.
We will also be getting to grips with some of the grammar techniques and how we can use these to make our writing more interesting. Please continue to hear your child read as often as possible and record it in their records. They will also have weekly spellings to practise at home and must continue to learn their weekly times table (Times Table Rockstars is great for this!)
In maths, we will be learning about fractions as well as reasoning about numbers.
Spelling tests will be on Wednesdays with Mrs Lee. Reading records will be checked when it is your child's turn to work with an adult during guided reading over the week. TTR is changed weekly as appropriate and the children will also have one or two fun projects to complete over the half term - a letter has been sent home about this. Times table tests will be on Thursdays. Your child will be told which ones to learn.
This term we will be performing at the Hertford and Ware school music concert Out There! Watch this space for more details!
We are really looking forward to a great term in 5U, and we hope you and your child is too!
