Summer Term 2018
Welcome to Class 5! Our teaching assistant is Mr Eaves. Mrs Taylor teaches French, PSHE and RE on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. The children in Year 5 are learning how to play the p-Bone through Lancashire Music Service Wider Opportunities. The children have their whole class music lesson on a Thursday afternoon.
There are various multiplication and division activities at Primary Resources, Teaching Time or Teaching Tables, which will be useful in assisting children in their Mathematics work. Please see the link at the top of this page for information on the Year 5 Curriculum.
We follow the Lancashire Mathematics and English planning. In Mathematics we will begin by looking at place value and decimals. We will then move on to written addition and subtraction. We will also be looking at angles and perimeter. Please see our class curricular letter for more information.
PE will normally be on Mondays and Fridays, so please ensure PE kits are brought in then.
Homework shall be given on a Friday and is expected back the following Wednesday. The spelling test takes place on Friday mornings.
Summer 1: Week 2
This week we have been learning to ride our bikes on roads, these are some of the things we did. We practised U turns, as well as three other turns that were very hard because we were on major and minor roads.
Some year 5 and 6's also took part in a gala at All Seasons Leisure center. Some people won some gold and silver medals.

Summer 1: Week 1
This week we have been extremely busy exploring our new themes for the term. In English we started to explore Information Texts by reading and discussing a range of texts, picking out features that we could find. In groups we created a poster of all the features and content that we found, and discussed how they were different and the purpose of each one. Next week we will begin to plan and write our own Information texts on a range of topics. In maths we have focused on volume in cuboids, while in RE we had a visitor in class, teaching us all about the Old Testament.
