Welcome to Year 5 with Mr C Mahy
Welcome to the Spring term. We have a lot of challenging work to cope with this term but we will still have fun along the way. In topic we will be looking at how democracy came about by investigating the Ancient Greeks. We will also be creating Greek vases with clay. Gazing towards the stars is something else we will be doing as we investigate our solar system. Literacy will be based mainly around Myths and Legends to tie in with the Greeks. Maths will be all about understanding fractions and using line graphs.
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 be though Purple Mash activities. It will be set on Thursdays and must be completed by the following Monday.
Correctly labelled PE kit is needed for Tuesday afternoons and Friday afternoons. We will also be exercising on other days so it may be worth leaving it in school for the week.
