Year 5 Ash Class
Class Teacher Mrs Suzan Kern - email: email@example.com
In Year 5 the theme for our learning is ‘Bountiful Biomes’. The children are very enthusiastic about this subject and have already produced some very well-presented pages in their Geography books. I have been particularly impressed with the way many of them are using their spare time to do further research. I am looking forward to their topic presentations at the end of term. This learning on biomes is being reinforced by our science focus of plants lifecycles and reproduction. We have been acting like scientists by dissecting and observing all the different features of a flowing plant.
In English we are continuing to read ‘The Last Human’. This has generated some very interesting discussions around what it means to be alive and what life would be life if robots took over the planet. It has also given us opportunities to engage with our ‘Be the Change’ curriculum. In our writing we have been focusing on using description to entertain, persuade and inform our readers about the rainforest and deforestation. The children have produced some very well written pieces of work.
Our maths theme for the rest of the half term is fractions. As always practicing times tables and division facts at home will support your child’s fluency and understanding.
Our PSHE this half term focusses on hopes and dreams for the future. The children have spent time reflecting on what they would like to do when they grow up and the steps/qualifications they will need to be successful. We have also had a visit from the local fire service teaching us how to be ‘fire safe’ at home.
Our art and RE this half term are both centred around Islam. We have been learning about what Muslims believe and how they represent their faith through art. We are very excited that we have the opportunity to visit Woking Mosque on the first Monday back after half term.
