In the event of school closures due to Covid-19 each class teacher will be providing a home learning pack for children to bring home. We will also send home RM easimaths codes and various other suggestions for support whilst the school is closed.
I have started to gather some resources and will also update on here as often as possible. Thank you for your support and understadning during this unsettled time.
Welcome to Year 5 - Mrs Croft’s Class
Our topic this term is Japan. We have been transported 5760 miles to Asia for a wonderful insight into the world of Samuri, Sumo and Sushi. Children have decided to focus on a historical perspective looking at how Japan was involved in WW2 as well as the history behind Samuri warriors. We have had a strong focus on the location of Japan and looked into plate tectonics and the Pacific ring of fire as well as earthquake proof buildings.
Our end of term showcase will be in the form of a “Sharing Cafe” where we will invite parents in to look at the beautiful look books the children have made.
Please can P.E. kit be in school at all times. PE times may change according to the weather or availability of the hall.
Children are asked to complete twice weekly sessions on RMeasimaths. Login information was sent home at the start of the year. Topic homework will be sent home at the beginning of each new term. Homework can either be sent into school or uploaded to seesaw when completed. We would also expect children to be reading at home and changing their books regularly.
In Year 5 we try to encourage children to stand on their own two feet. Year 6 is fast approaching and we want children to have the skills they need for their transition to high school. As such, they are no longer accompanied to the gate after school each day. We also encourage children to do small things like pack their own bag for school each day and sort their own P.E. kit etc. Please support your child in building their independence by encouraging this at home.
