Jaguar (Year 5)

Term 1: 


Welcome to Jaguar class 2022/2023! We hope you had an awesome summer and are refreshed and ready for the new school year. Mrs Gadd, Mrs Blake and I are so excited to get going with this year and see all of the amazing things you will achieve.

Term 1: Were the Vikings really that vicious?
This term we will be focusing on our history and geography skills in our Curriculum work; this will include our English and our Topic work. We will be covering a range of writing genres and just know your awesome skills will be put to good use.

Our first maths topic of the year is number and place value. We will recap some familiar concepts from year 4 before we move onto the challenges of year 5!

Our PE days this term will be MONDAY and FRIDAY. We are lucky enough to start the year with Elite taking our PE sessions on Mondays. Please make sure long hair is tied back and earrings are removed on these days. As we all know September and October weather is fairly unpredictable. Please ensure children are in suitable clothing to cover the seasonal changes. Suncream must be applied before school and can be reapplied by children if necessary whilst in school but we cannot assist with this.

Forest school this term will be on Wednesdays and take place on alternate weeks. It will happen at our forest school area on site. The dates are as follows: 7th September, 21st September, 5th October, 19th October.

Homework will be set in the usual way through a 9 square grid. Each child is expected to complete at least 1 Maths, 1 English and 1 Topic homework each term. This usually equates to 1 homework every other week. We will collect homework on Fridays and it can be submitted through google classroom or brought into school. The homework grid is uploaded on google classroom, below this post and a hard copy can be given to children if required. It is expected that children read at least 3 times a week. I know children will begin to read independently at this age, sometimes before bed or in the morning, these can still be signed off. Each child has a reading record that needs to be signed by an adult this term and we will begin working towards more independence throughout the year. The reading record is also uploaded onto Google Classroom should you wish to complete this electronically.

Every child has a log in to Timestable Rockstars and Spelling shed. If you need a reminder of this please do let me know. It is expected that each child practices on these websites at least 3 times a week. They will also have opportunities to use them in class throughout the week.

We are really looking forward to the year ahead and cannot wait to see just how amazing you are. If you have any questions please do let me know or contact the office and they can schedule a catch up if preferred.

Keep Smiling,
Miss Paggett, Mrs Gadd and Mrs Blake :)
