Welcome to Year 5H! I am Miss Houghton and I am very excited to be your class teacher this year. In Y5H we are lucky enough to also have Miss Jones working with us every day.
Who built the pyramids?
You know lots about the Egyptians but were they the only people to build pyramids? We will discover this and lots more fascinating information in our Theme lessons this half term.
In Science we will be learning all about the Solar System and the incredible bodies that lie beyond planet Earth. Get your thinking caps on as some of the things you will learn will be mind boggling!
Our English theme over the next few weeks will be Myths. As well as studying some famous myths and writing our own, we will also be developing our writing skills by using complex sentences and building cohesion within paragraphs. We will be spending lots of time practising our handwriting too to ensure it is at the standard expected in Year 5.
This half term in Maths we will be focusing on place value in large numbers as well as addition and subtraction. We will also be continuing to develop our reasoning and problem solving skills as well as regularly practising our times tables.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
Things to Remember in Year 5:
Our PE days will be Tuesday (outdoor) and Thursday (indoor). PE kits will remain in school and will be sent home every half term to be washed.
You are expected to:
- Read every day (reading books will be changed on Tuesdays)
- Practise multiplication and division facts
- Practise your weekly spellings for a test on Wednesdays - as well as learn the Y5 word list over the year
- Complete one or two other pieces of homework each week (this will be given out on Friday and is due in the following Thursday)
