Rowan Class - Year 5
Meet the Teacher 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Class Rowan
Our teacher is Mr Gordon and we get TA support from Mrs Allison.
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 likes reading to us and he has started to read 'Radio Kid' to us. It's a very funny book.
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 topic for this term will be 'Forces' and 'Electricity'.
Art- Viking art
Computing - We will begin this year by developing our own games using Scratch.
PE - Our focus will be Hockey.
Music - We have missed our singing so we will be starting this year learning the song 'Happy' by Pharrell Williams
RE - We are learning all about 'Christianity'.
PSHE - New Beginnings
History - We will be learning about 'Invaders and Settlers'.
