Welcome to our Severn class page- we are a Year 5 class and it is lovely to be together as a single year group this year. Our teacher is Mrs Williams and our teaching assistants are Miss Angus and Mrs Clifford. Our main topic for this term is ‘Space’ so we are excited about learning all about the different planets and even designing our own space hotel! In English, we are reading ‘Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator’ and sharing other favourite books on a Friday in our library session. In Maths, we have been enjoying using a wide range of equipment to learn all about place value and we are also very keen to improve our Times Table Rock Star results as much as possible. We are also improving our Arithmetic skills by doing a five minute session of ‘Fluent in 5’ each day. This will help us to remember all of the different methods we have learnt throughout the years.
We are continuing with our ukulele lessons with Ms. Fitton and have also got some budding clarinet players in the class- we are very much looking forward to showing all of our musical talents off in class assemblies and a Christmas performance. If you listen carefully at the end of some days, you will hear us singing some of favourite Spanish songs (as well as others!).
We are being taught PE twice a week by Mr Leather which is great as it enables Mrs Williams to run short 15 minute focus groups during PE so that she can help any child who is struggling with their learning- so far this seems to be working really well!
So…… watch this space! Homework will be given on a Friday for the following Friday and new spellings will be given out on a Monday for a test on Friday. The Year 5s are also looking forward to a special treat if they read at home every day for 5 weeks. They will also be rewarded for completing their daily spellings at home each day as well as regularly going on TTRS.
We are really looking forward to this year and hope to update this page as much as possible!
