Year 5 - The Sea Dragons
Welcome to our Year 5 Sea Dragon Page!
It might be the end of term but we've been working hard in computing and learning about spreadsheets!
This Term's Topic
This term we will be comparing the UK, in terms of Geography and post-war History, with Mexico. Then delving into the world of the ancient Mayan civilisation.
More information coming soon.
Book Bags - Thank you for: filling your child's reading record in each Tuesday, wherever they are up to in the book, and sending in each Wednesday in the book bag along with Homework books which are signed. A conscientious home learning routine not only helps ahead of Y6 and Secondary, but also helps celebrate your child taking responsibility for their learning - and maybe help gain an extra playtime!
Homework - Each week please help your child: learn spellings; check back through their marked Maths weekly skills sheet and help practise a few of the concepts; and TH - talk homework - is to chat about upcoming English or theme work ahead of Monday's lessons to gain a head start.
PPA - Mrs Wilkinson will be teaching Year 5 on Wednesday afternoons. This term she will be continuing to take them swimming and also covering IT and French.
PE - PE will be swimming on Wednesday afternoons for the next half term. The children will also be taking part in a 40 minute gymnastics class on Thursday afternoons. After half term, we revert to our 'normal' routine of indoor Tuesday outdoor Thursday.
Music - Year5 traditionally work with the Derbyshire Music Partnership to have weekly music lessons. This term they will be learning African drumming on Thursday afternoons. There will be a performance for parents after about 10 weeks. I will confirm a date and time as soon and Mrs Salt (the music teacher) is ready.
