Welcome to the Year 5 class page!
We are a class of 17 children. Our teachers are Mrs Sanderson and Mrs Dudding and our teaching assistant is Mrs Norman.
This term we will be very busy learning all about where we live and why it is importance to be proud of our community; we will be studying the book Holes by Louis Sachar and looking at North America then we will end the term by studying the rainforests around the world with a key focus on the Amazon Rainforest.
Keep checking back here for updates and pictures of our work!
Vocabulary is a key focus this year. We will be doing lots of searching and investigating new words throughout the year to improve our language skills and understanding and writing skills.
Here we worked as a table group to organise adjectives into positive and negative language and used a dictionary to define any unfamiliar words.
As part of our topic 'The rainforest' we have been trying lots of different fruits that grow in the rainforest. Some of the fruit we were already familiar with but others were new to us including the persimmon fruit. See Earwig for more pictures of this session.
Reading is so important to children as it allows them to develop in so many areas - reading skills; listening skills; social skills; developing an imagination and writing skills to name a few. Please try to encourage your child to read as much as possible. Below are some questions to help you when listening and reading to your child.
