Welcome to Year 5 with Mr C Mahy
Summer term is here, the football goals are out and Year 5 are ready for the term ahead. There's lots to fit in. The first thing to fit in is swimming down at Codsall every Thursday morning. This will get us ready for the day ahead. Our topic, Medicine Through the Ages, has already captured the children's imagination and opened up loads of questions. In Literacy we are going to investigate Kensuke's Kingdom, poetry based on a theme and Myths and Legends plus lots more. Maths will be looking at our arithmetical skills and in science we will be looking at life cycles and reversible and irreversible changes. In ICT we will be continuing to program in scratch and will be recapping on esafety.
Check out our Twitter page to see what we're up to.
As a reminder, all children are responsible for getting their homework done. Spelling homework will be given out by Mrs McKinnon on a Thursday morning after explaining the rule that they follow. They must be learnt and the activity completed and handed in by the following Thursday when the children will be tested on them. Maths homework will consist of a year 5 arithmetic paper, which will be given out on the Friday to be handed in the following Thursday.
Correctly labelled PE kit is needed for Tuesday afternoons and Friday afternoons. It may be worth leaving it in school for the week incase we get an opportunity to do some extra outdoor activities.
Year 5 is an excellent year as long as everyone in it tries their hardest.
