Juniper Class - Year 5
Welcome to Class Juniper
Welcome to Class Juniper! Our teacher is Miss Jones. Mrs Blackledge is our Teaching Assistant. We have had a fantastic first week back.
Here is a summary of some of the work we will be completing in the Autumn term:
English - This half term we are reading the book 'Beowulf and Grendel' by Michael Morporgo. This links in with our History topic on the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. We will be looking at different types of writing based on this book. We are then going to look at poetry, playscripts and Detective fiction.
We read every day. Sometimes we read independently and other times we read with Miss Jones or Mrs Blackledge. We will be working on our comprehension and inference skills throughout the year.
Maths - We have started the term by looking at place value. We will also work on our written calculations as well as shape and measurement this term.
History- Our topic for this term is 'Anglo-Saxons and Vikings'. We will look at the key features of this era and link Art, Music and Drama to this subject.
Science - Our topic for this half-term is 'Electricity'.
PE - On Mondays, a sports coach from the School Sports Partnership will be teaching us Outdoor and Adventurous activities!
On Fridays we will do Dance in the hall.
Important days to remember:
