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 starting with 'The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips' by Michael Morpurgo which links to our history topic.
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 'Properties and Changes of Materials'.
Art- Britten's Got Talent?
Computing - We will be creating our own websites linked to our history topic.
PE - We will be working on our orienteering skills with staff from SSP.
Music - We will be composing our own music using 'The Blues' for inspiration.
RE - We are learning all about 'God-Christianity'.
PSHE - Going for Goals
History - We will be learning about 'Britain during WW2'.
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.
