Juniper Class - Year 5
Welcome to Class Juniper
Welcome to Class Juniper! Our teacher is Miss Jones. Mrs Blackledge is our Teaching Assistant. Mrs Hughes is also teaching our class this half term :)
Here is a summary of some of the work we will be completing in the Spring term:
English - This half term we are looking at Persuasive writing. We will be writing letters and making adverts. We are also going to read texts relating to our Space and Ancient Egypt topics.
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 written methods for multiplication. We are going to look at measures next week as well as solving some harder fraction problems.
History- Our topic for this term is 'Ancient Egypt'. This is such a fun topic and we will learn lots about how the Ancient Egyptians lived. We will link some dance, drama and artwork to this topic.
Science - Our topic for this half-term is 'Earth and Space'. Our class assembly, on the 31st January, will be about this exciting topic.
PE - On Mondays, we will be playing Tag Rugby. On Thursdays, we will be doing gymnastics in the hall.
Important days to remember:
Homework - Given out on Friday and due in on the following Wednesday.
PE- Monday and Thursday. On Monday we will need our tracksuits and trainers.
On Thursdays we will need pumps.
