Welcome to Tiger - Year 5!
Welcome to Year 5 who are known as Tiger Class. We are taught by Mrs Abbott, Mrs Ewence and supported by Mrs Jacobs.
Keep an eye on this page as it will be updated regularly throughout the year giving information about what we are learning about.
Spring - Term 3
This term our English curriculum is based on our book, The Fox by Margaret Wild. It is unusual as not only it is a picture book but it also has unique illustrations and text. The book explores relationships and has twists at every turn.
We will be furthering our understanding of English grammar and it 's use from this book, focussing on elaborating our vocabulary, in line with the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. We are working on extending our vocabulary and our sentences. We would be grateful if you could help us with this at home- don't settle for "nice" or "good"!
In Maths we are continuing to consolidate our skills in fractions, decimals and percentages as well as learning lots of new things.
Our Science topic this term is Life Cycles both plants and animals.
In RE we will be continuing to explore the religion of Islam by looking at the importance of Hajj and the festival of Ramadan.
Our Art work is linked to the extraordinary book that we are studying in Literacy, The Fox. Our art co-ordinator, Mrs Godden, will explore the unusual illustrations of this book and compare its style to others e.g those found in books by Roald Dahl.
History will involve studying the Vikings. Were they really as ferocious and fierce as history books like to tell us?
PE days will be Monday ( Mr Dickinson ) and Wednesday. please make sure PE kits are in school everyday.
Spellings are sent home every Tuesday to be tested the following week. Please help your child to learn their spellings.
Year 5 children are expected to have instant recall of all their times tables up to 12 x 12. We have a challenge every Monday where we try to answer 100 questions right in 3 minutes. Some of the questions will involve division facts.
Maths or Science homework is given out every Wednesday to be handed in the next Monday. English or Topic Work will be given out on Thursday to be collected on Wednesday. If you have any questions or concerns regarding homework, please get your child to speak to Mrs Abbott, Mrs Ewence or Mrs Jacobs before it is due in.
