Welcome to Aughton Town Green Primary School Only My Best Is Good Enough For Me

Rowan Class - Year 5

Welcome to Class Rowan


Our teacher is Mr Gordon and we get TA support from Mrs Allinson and Mrs O'connor.


Being in Y5 means we have certain responsibilities and expected to set an amazing example to the younger children. We will always put 100% into every piece of work we do and be excellent role models. We are always very busy in class and are looking forward to a new year at Aughton Town Green. 


Take a look at some of the work we will be completing during our first term: 


English - We read every day. Sometimes we read independently and other times we work in a guided reading group.  We also work on our reading comprehension and grammar skills in small groups. Mr Gordon loves reading to us and he is currently reading 'Kasper the Prince of Cats'.


Maths - We enjoy applying our mathematical knowledge and skills to challenges and investigations. Throughout the year there will be a big emphasis on reasoning and mental arithmetic. 


Science - Our topics for this half term will be 'Living things and their habitats'.


Art- We will be developing our drawing skills and creating paintings inspired by the seaside.


Computing - We will be using our editing skills to create advertisements using iMovies .


PE - We will be creating our own gymnastics routines using varied travelling methods and balances.


Music - We will be learning to perform Happy by Farrell Williams and listening to Short Ride on a Fast Machine from BBC 10 pieces.


RE - We are learning all about Hinduism.


PSHE - We will be thinking about our health and well-being and how adverts can persuade us to act or look a certain way.


Geography - We will be learning about coastal areas and using our mapping skills to identify different lands uses.


History - Our history unit will focus on Local Black History. We will learn about the slave trade and find out about how Lancashire was involved.


Important days to remember:


Homework - Given out on Friday. We will be completing Reading, Maths and spelling tasks. Homework to be completed by the Following Friday. Details about all homework can be found on the class dojo page.


PE - Thursday and Friday. 


We will be continuing our weekly swimming sessions on a Friday afternoon at Park Pool.
