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 second part of the Spring term will be:
Plant Protection Designers- A Design and Technology topic.
We will be working on the following objectives as designers-
Design – use research and develop design criteria to create an innovative bird scarer aimed at an individual or groups. Generate, model and communicate ideas through discussion, annotated sketches, prototypes and diagrams.
Make – select and use a range of tools and equipment to make a functional bird scarer accurately. Select and use materials according to their properties and qualities.
Evaluate – investigate and analyse existing bird scarers. Evaluate their ideas and products against design criteria, considering the views of others to improve their work.
Technical knowledge – understand and use electrical systems; how to strengthen, stiffen and reinforce structures; apply understanding of computing to program
Our main text will be The Wilderness War by Julia Green
