Welcome to 5E's class page.
This term our connector is
This term we are learning about British history. We will place the Victorian era on a time line. Going into more detail, we will discuss the significant events of this period, considering the impact on society and the time and the legacy which endures today.
We will identify the differences between the wealthy and the impoverished. Taking the role of historians, we will consider how items belonging to the past help us build an accurate picture of how people lived in the past. You could help your child further understand this period by reading books by Charles Dickens.
Science will be focusing on changes in materials.We will discuss reversible and irreversible changes. We will look at the impact of temperature. Many children have enjoyed bringing in items based on our science learning that they have made at home. Do encourage your child to make and bring something in, if they would like to.
In maths we are learning about place value. By the end of year 5 the children have to know all their times tables. Each child has received a multiplication square to help them learn. Many children are already confident in most of their times tables, so well done to all the adults who have helped them learn them. You are enabling them to be the best mathematicians they can be!
In PE we will working on athletics and team building activities. Please do ensure your child has their full kit every Thursday as I do want every child to be able to participate.
Homework goes out on Wednesday and due back on Monday. We aim to make the homework as discursive as possible (based on having a discussion) to help the children improve their spoken skills so please do help them and join in the conversation.
As ever, I am always keen to hear any news or concerns you may have; it's important to me that your child feels happy so please catch me at the beginning or end of the day if you need to speak to me.
Children need to bring in their reading books everyday.
At Lordship Lane, we strive to ensure that we prepare our children for the wider world.
