Welcome to Fox Class
Hello and welcome to the Fox class page. This Summer term, we are going to be learning about South America and the Rainforest, which will link to all areas of the curriculum. We will be exploring the different countries in South America and the important impact they have on the world, as well as how the rainforest is the lungs of the Earth.
In English, we will be learning to write a wide range of text types including letters, persuasive texts, arguments and debates, structure poetry and modern classic fiction.
In Science, we will be learning to develop scientific thinking and understanding and applying this knowledge in a range of contexts. The class will be exploring ideas about living things, their habitats and animals.
This term, children will continue to participate in PE twice per week, one session being athletics and games based and the other dance based. PE will be for an hour each on Monday and Tuesday afternoons. PE kit (including shorts, tracksuit trousers, trainers and plimsolls) will therefore need to remain in school for the entirety of each half term and will be sent home on the last PE session of each half term.
Home work is set weekly on a Friday and due back in on Thursday.
Weekly home learning tasks consist of Maths, spellings and reading. In Year 5, we strongly encourage that parents spend at least 15 minutes listening to their child read out loud three times per week and that this is recorded in their reading diary. There is an additional, optional Nandos homework set in the homework books which will linto to the topic for the term.
We have now subscribed to My Maths which is a fantastic online resource which allows children to practise and consolidate what they have learnt at school. To log on to this site, visit www.mymaths.co.uk and log in using the username and password given in school.
