Year 5 Brazil
Welcome to Brazil Class
Class teachers — Miss Rickell and Mrs Barnett
Teaching Assistants — Miss Todd
Welcome to year 5 – we hope you had a lovely summer.
We are very excited to be back in school with your children, and we are happy to say we have settled in well to the new term. This term we will be learning about forces in 'Scream Machine'.
Spellings will be handed out on a Tuesday and tested the following Monday.
English currently has a focus on a fiction book The Nowhere Emporium.
Maths this half-term will be focusing on fractions.
Guided reading is based around a variety of high quality texts, focusing on reading for inference.
Homework They must practice their spellings weekly, their reading daily, and if they have a Lexia License then they will need to be using this daily. Extras will also be uploaded onto Doodle English and Doodle Maths.
Brazil class will have their P.E. on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, please make sure that your child comes in their full P.E. kit on these days (including footwear). No earrings are allowed during P.E. lessons so if your child can not remove their earrings themselves can you please make sure that they arrive at school with no earrings in on those days, thank you.
Reading is being promoted this year in a variety of ways. If your child brings in their reading record they get a house point. If the reading record is brought in every day for a week, they will receive a small prize.
The children also have another reading incentive, if they read 25 books they get a small prize and if they read 50 books they will get a bigger prize.
If you have any questions about your child’s class, routines, or learning we are pleased to talk to you briefly on the playground at the end of the day. If you would like to speak in confidence, or have a longer conversation, please make an appointment at the office.
