Class 5

Welcome to Class 5!


Well, it's been a lovely start to the new school year.  I can't believe we are already halfway through this half term!

Over the next few weeks, we will be recapping and progressing our understanding of the four operations in maths.  We will also be using 'Tuesday' by David Wiesner as our inspiration for writing a short story.  In topic, we will be looking at crime and punishment from various time periods and learning how laws are made in the UK.  We will be learning about states of matter and reversible and irreversible actions in science and we will be learning about topographical markers in Geography as well as learning about the north-eastern corner of the USA - New England.  All in all, a busy but interesting time!

A message for everyone in Class 5:

For those of you working from home, we hope you will be back with us soon but, in the meantime, there are some links below that will help you keep up with the goings-on in the classroom.


With very best wishes from

Mrs Greaves and Mrs Fowkes

We will be answering the reading questions for 'Dick Turpin - Legends and Lies' over two days.  If working from home on this task, please remember to use the phrasing of the question to draft your answer so you write in full sentences.

For topic, we are creating a new front sheet for our learning journal.  If you are at home, create a suitable page for your journal - using a sheet of A4 paper - using appropriate images and captions and we will add it to your book on your return.


Enjoy creating!
