Welcome to 5C!
Your Teacher is Miss Chapman and your Teaching Assistant is Mrs Elson. Our Summer Term topic is 'Do you know how important our world is?'.
Through this topic, we will be learning about how different parts of the world use land for economic use and settlements. We will also look at how resources for fuel have been used and how they are changing to more sustainable and renewable methods (e.g Solar, Wind and Water powered energy). We will be investigating how chocolate is made and where it comes from. This may involve some tasting sessions (yummy) to help us design a chocolate wrapper for a Fairtrade chocolate which we will design ourselves! There is so much to look forward to in this term.
Our Pathways to Write book focus for this half term is 'The Paperbag Prince' by Colin Thompson. Our Pathways to Read texts for this half term are 'Pollution - A look behind the scenes-The Literacy Company' and 'The Last Wild' by Piers Torday.
Our Summer Term Power Maths units are focused on: Decimals, Geometry - Properties of shape, Measure - Converting units and Measure - Volume and Capacity.
We will be using Showbie as a way to share resources and communicate. You can use this area to upload any homework you have completed for this term.
In this class, we use all of our learning muscles in different ways. We work together as ants, showing one another a new strategy for learning or supporting each other. We are resilient rhinos - Never giving up and making sure that we have put the most effort we can into an activity. We are resourceful beavers - Using resources in and around the classroom to scaffold our learning and support us in lessons. We are reflective tortoises - We look back on achievements and accomplishments. What went well? What did I learn? What do I need to improve on? How can I be even better than what I am already?
Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. On these days we ask that your child comes to school in their PE clothes rather than their school uniform.
Weather dependant they can wear their shorts and school coloured PE T- shirt and school jumper. If the weather is cold, then track suit bottoms/leggings would be more suitable. Trainers are preferable to pumps as it is possible the children may be outdoors for some lessons.
All children have been given a school water bottle. This needs to be brought to school each day having been washed and re filled with fresh water from home. Children will be reminded at the end of the day to bring home their lunch bag and water bottle to be washed ready for the next day. We have turned off our water filter system so children will not be able to fill up their water bottle in the usual way. All classes have access to drinking water throughout the day should the children require extra water.
Outdoor shoes and coats
Please ensure your child brings a coat to school each day. We had a rainy start to the term but we are trying as much as possible to allow the children their outdoor breaks which may mean us putting coats on to go out in the rain as much as possible without getting too wet. Please ensure all coats are clearly named.
Please also ensure your child has a pair of outdoor shoes as our play area is on the school field. We will be using the field as much as possible.
