Welcome to Class 5's Homepage
Mrs Southward will be working with the class Mondays- Thursdays. The super Mrs Jones will be teaching on Fridays and Monday afternoons covering my PPA.
We do PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays for this half term. We will also try to do some running during the week. Please ensure your child has trainers and PE kit in school everyday.
We do stickers and Emojis as our reward system in class. When the children have achieved 10 stickers, they will be given a treat from the treat box. Upon 20 stickers being achieved, the children will be allowed to come into school wearing their own clothes!
Homework is given out on Thursdays and must be handed in on Tuesdays. It may consist of a MyMaths activity/times tables learning/ additional online activity or paper task together with a SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) task in their CGP books or Spelling Shed. Reading also needs to continue at home. Children do not simply need to read their school reading book. They can read a variety of material including programmes, magazines, children's newspapers, comics, non-fiction books, cookery books etc. Audio books are also an excellent resource. Please encourage your child to read both by themselves and to another older person. This can be recorded in the reading diary.
The topic for the last part of the Spring term will be:
We will be working on the following objectives:
Pupils should be taught to recognise themes in what they read, such as loss, heroism and tradegies. They should have opportunities to compare characters, consider different accounts of the same event and discuss viewpoints (both of authors and of fictional characters), within a text and across more than one text.
To continue to learn the conventions of different types of writing- eg playscripts. review, poetry.
Pupils should be taught the technical and other terms needed for discussing what they hear and read, such as metaphor, simile, analogy, imagery, style and effect.
Our main shared reading text will be The Wilderness War by Julia Green
Our class text continues to be Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo
Various versions of Romeo and Juliet will also be used in class.
