Willow Class (Y5 2021-2022)
Hello and welcome to Willow Class!
There are lots of exciting new topics this year:
English - We will be reading a new book 'Queen of the Falls.'
Science - Changing states: identifying solids, liquids and gases; evaporation and condensation in the water cycle, reversible and irreversible changes.
Humanities - Vicious Vikings. When did the Vikings come to Britain? Why? Which countries did they travel from?
Maths - Building on your previous knowledge of multiplication and division. Looking at inverse calculations, prime numbers, factors, reasoning and problem solving.
Plus, many other interesting lessons and activities to keep your brains active.
As always, we ask that you encourage your child to read as much as possible at home. I will allocate books on 'Epic Books' every week to which the children can access online.
Bug Club and Oxford Owl are also available to use.
P.E. will be every Monday and children must come to school wearing their kits in on this day.
I will send spellings home every week to practise for a spelling test given the following week, sometimes this may be via Google classroom.
There will be a Homework book sent home with a range of activities to complete, which links to work taught in class. The children will also complete their own independent research and work set on Google Classroom.
Miss McKuhen & Miss Ching
If anyone is isolating, I have uploaded work onto Google Classroom to support their learning at home.
Please remind the children to use all the previous sites we used last year to: Mathletics, epic books, spelling frame, Oak Academy etc.
