Class 5 - Mrs Morgan

Dear Parents,

Firstly, Welcome to Year 5! All the children have settled really well and are now becoming used to the routines and expectations of Year 5. They are really engaging with the learning and are enjoying having responsibilities around the school.

Please support your child to complete their homework on time and read frequently. Discuss their books with them. I know not every child has a love for reading so encourage them to read magazines, newspapers, poetry and information texts even if this is on the computer.

We have many months of learning; encourage your child to achieve their best. I always emphasise that progress is extremely important and will always praise this over achievement!

House Keeping

  • PE days are Monday and Friday.
  • Homework is given out on a Friday and should be in school by Thursday. If your child is away on a Friday, they will still be expected to collect and complete their homework.
  • Please send an email to the office if your child is allowed to walk home on their own.
  • If you need to contact me urgently, please do this through the office- they will forward the email to me- however during a working day I rarely have time to look at my emails and anything that is an emergency may therefore be missed.
  • No pencil cases needed in Year 5. But the children may use their own pencil cases in the afternoons if we are colouring etc

This Term’s Learning

Our main theme is ‘Ancient Maya’. This is a Historical theme- we will be studying The Ancient Maya Civilisation. We will be writing discussion texts on Ancient Maya punishments; looking at Masks in Art; Building a temple in DT; in Geography we will look where the Ancient Maya lived and the countries that are there now; in R.E we will look at the different beliefs of different religions and how some people don’t believe in a god. Our Science does not link to our theme but will we be looking at properties of materials and reversible and irreversible changes. As a class we will also be reading the book ‘Wonder’.

In Maths we will continually practise arithmetic skills, understanding place value and working on our addition and subtraction skills.

We all look forward to working with you. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries

Kind Regards the Year 5 Team
