Welcome to Class 5T
Class 5T are working hard to be ‘the best we can be’. As well as working to maximise our potential, we are working on respect, feelings and values. These play a big part in growing up and fit well into learning about puberty this term.
We cover two great topics – Vikings and Bridges this summer and have some exciting books ‘How to train your Dragon’ and ‘The Bridge to Terabithia’. This should give us some good opportunities to be creative in our writing and in both art and design. In fact to support this we have an artist coming in to work with us. We hope to do more programming too, using our RasberyPi’s. Look at us making flashing light algorithms:
In maths we are trying to extend our mastery through a greater degree of group reasoning tasks. However it is important that we build our fluency by knowing our tables well and be able to use written methods of calculation. (Remember to check out the Maths Calculation videos in the Maths section of the curriculum if you need to know how we do these!) Don’t forget we subscribe to a great maths website for tables practice, homework and mini lessons to use, if we’re not sure of something – https://www.mymaths.co.uk/primary.html Every pupil has their own login.
Don’t forget that our PE days are Mondays and Tuesdays, so we must make sure we have our kit in school then – white t-shirt, black shorts, trainers. Also our homework is given on Friday and collected the following Wednesday, when our weekly spelling test takes place.
