Class 5 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Class 5
Teacher: Miss Palmer
The Way, the Truth and the Life
Our Way, the Truth and the Life topic for this half term is Creation. This is a truly fantastic topic and gives children the opportunity to understand that, for a long time, people have asked questions about Creation. We will look at how Religion and Science do not contradict one another, but instead link together in some ways. We will explore the 7 days of Creation, learn about the story of The Fall and understand how we are all called to be 'Stewards of the Earth'.
During the first Autumn Half Term, Class 5's writing opportunities will be based mainly on the book 'Queen of the Falls' by Chris Van Allsburg. This story tells all about the life of Annie Edson Taylor and her attempts to avoid the poorhouse.
In our Guided Reading lessons, we will be reading extracts from 'Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls', amongst other texts from a range of genres. Our class novel this half term will be Holes by Louis Sachar (a personal favourite of Miss Palmer's!).
Daily reading is a key priority in primary school and we actively encourage children to read as much as possible at home to help further develop their fluency and comprehension skills. Every child will be able to bring home a reading book from school. These can be changed regularly in school. Every child is encouraged to have a 'Reading for Pleasure' book.
Weekly homework will be set on Google Classroom. This will be set every Thursday and is expected to be completed and submitted by the following Monday.
Spellings will be set on a Monday and tested the following Monday. These will also be available on Google Classroom.
I have created every child in Class 5 an account of Read Theory. This is a fantastic reading comprehension site that can be used regularly by the children.
Useful website to support learning whilst at home:
Class 5 are lucky enough to be able to take part in Edsential's violin taster music sessions. These whole class sessions will take place on a Monday morning at 9am. Every child in Class 5 will be given a violin to bring home. This must come back into school every Monday for our lesson.
As well as taking part in the Daily Mile each day, our main P.E. lesson will take place every week on a Thursday. As stated in the letter sent home, children should come to school on a Thursday in their full P.E. kits, which are clearly labelled, this includes appropriate footwear. Jewellery, including earrings, must not be worn during PE days.
I am always happy to discuss any worries, concerns or general queries you may have. Please make contact through the school office and it will be passed onto me ASAP.
Miss C. Palmer
