Summer Term 2017
Welcome to 5E's class page.
This term our connector is
Greece is the word.
This term we are learning about Greece. Firstly we are examining Ancient Greece. We will look at their way of life and discuss how they successfully created an Empire. We will also consider the legacy, for example the Olympics and language. In literacy we will take the opportunity to read and consider Greek myths and legends. Many Greek legends, such as the story about Narcissus, are referenced in modern times and so it is an ideal time to learn where these ideas originally came from.
Science will be focusing on the life-cycles of plants and animals. 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 prime numbers, prime factors and composite numbers. We will also review fractions as this remains a topic which many children find a challenge.
In addition,please help your child with their learning about measurements. Let them weigh out ingredients. If possible, let them compare imperial and metric measurements.
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 has changed- it is going 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.
Library books are changed on Wednesday.
Children need to bring in their reading books everyday.
