Green, Clean World - Saving the Rainforests

PE and homework 'need to know' information

 When do Y5 do PE?

The days which we do PE are Tuesdays and Thursdays but it is important for children to have their PE kit in school everyday just incase we have a change of plan or do any extra sporting activities!

Weekly Homework

Maths

Every Friday Maths Arithmetic homework will be set and will be handed in the following Friday. The children will bring home a sheet with various arithmetic questions and a space for any working out which they may wish to do. Some of the questions will link to areas we have covered recently and some will be new learning. Don't worry if your child finds some of these a challenge as we'll regularly be covering these areas in class. If your child loses their homework, to save trees there will be copy on our class page.  

Spellings

Also every Friday, your child will bring home words to learn for a spelling test the following Friday. The words will follow a spelling pattern, which we will have taught in the lesson that day. Your child can choose from the one, two or three star challenge list of words that suits them. It is no problem if they do the two star one week and then the three star the following week. The idea is your child chooses their own level of challenge that is not too easy and not too difficult. We appreciate your support in encouraging your child to practise at home.

Our introduction to 'A Green Clean World'! Each group had a global issue to research, using texts and the Ipads. Using teamwork, they created a poster and then shared their knowledge with the rest of the team.

'A Green Clean World'

Our whole school topic 'A Green Clean World' for the Autumn term is all about sustainable development and caring for our planet, encouraging and equipping our children to become more globally aware.

In Y5, we'll be focusing on the key objectives:

  • To understand the wider impact of human activity & climate change
  • To understand the dependency of humans on their environment

We'll be covering these key focuses by learning more about rainforests, the effects of deforestation and endangered animals. We're very excited about this topic!

 

Our class book for the Autumn term is 'The Last Wild' by Piers Torday

 

'The Last Wild' has many links to our topic 'A Green Clean World' and will hopefully be enjoyed by Team Oak and Maple!

We will enjoy reading 'The Last Wild' together as a class and some of our reading activities will be in response to the text and used for general comprehension discussion also.

If you would like your child to have their own copy to read in class, please feel free to purchase them a copy (it ranges from £2.99 for a used copy to £6.99 for a new copy), with their name marked inside.
