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.
Over the next half term we will be finding out the answers to these key questions:
Geography - What if there were no rainforests?
Science - Do all animals and plants start life as an egg?
Computing - How can I help Reception?
In RE we will be learning lots about Christmas, reflecting on what it means to us and looking at the true meaning. We will also be creating some exciting prints in Art linked to our Rainforest theme.
We had a very busy term in Autumn One - we learned all about the Mayans in History and discovered lots of amazing things about Space in Science. We also did lots of work on Myths in English and began our work on the Highwayman. In Maths we developed our reasoning and problem skills, which we will continue to do throughout the year. We particularly enjoyed learning all about the Bible in RE, reflecting on how it relates to us.
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)
