Welcome to Year 5!
Our classes for this year are: Rosetta and Cairo.
Mrs. Foster will be teaching Rosetta and Mr. Thanangadan will be teaching Cairo. Our teaching assistants are Miss Hallam and Miss Jackson.
We are starting off this term with an exciting D.T. topic where the children will be tasked with creating a CAM toy from scratch in order to sell them on Enterprise day (details to follow)
Our term theme is:
Heroes and Villains
We are starting with looking in depth at the classic poem; "The Highway Man" by Alfred Noyes. This poem tells the tale of a Criminal on the run who is ambushed by soldiers and his and his partners grisly fate. It will be up to the children to solve this murder mystery using all their detective skills.
During this half term, we will be looking at the 4 basic operations, add, subtract, multiply and divide to ensure all the children have these fundamental in place before we embark on the more challenging aspects of Maths that they will encounter this year.
Please can you help support your child in this by working with them to know their times tables up to 12x12
We will be supporting their learning by using the fun new app "Timetable Rock stars". Each child has their own log in and can gain both rock fame and coins to spend on improving their avatar just by playing.
This half term the children will be designing, building and evaluating their very own CAM toy. they will need all their creative skills in order to recreate their designs in wood and card. The ultimate aim being to sell these toys on Enterprise day and use the proceeds to buy something which the class can enjoy
