Year 5 - Chameleon Class
Welcome to Chameleon Class!
Our teacher is Mrs Cole and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Chongbang.
We learnt about Ancient Greece and Space, two really interesting topics. We wrote non-chronolgoical reports about Jupiter and diaries from the perspective of the main character from our reading books. We also completed an oracy week about pirates.
This term we will be continuing to learn about space and also what it is like to live on a volcano. We will look at the islands of Iceland and what life is like to live there.
Please note that our P.E days will remain the same this term: Tuesday afternoon and every other Wednesday morning. Please ensure that your child has the correct P.E kit, clearly labelled with their name and in a bag which can be kept in their locker. This must include a t-shirt in their house colour, black shorts or tracksuit bottoms and trainers/plimsolls.
On a Tuesday, P.E kit should be brought in and we will change after lunch. The children will come home in their P.E kit that day.
On a P.E Wednesday (first one is Wednesday 8th November) the children can come in to school in P.E kit, but must bring uniform to change into before lunch.
Forest School will be every other Wednesday morning (first one is Wednesday 1st November). The children should come to school wearing suitable clothing for forest school and for the weather. Bring uniform in a separate bag to get changed before lunch.
Be prepared to get muddy and bring wellies or old trainers that can get dirty. The children cannot wear their school shoes in forest school.
Homework will be sent home on Fridays and is due in by the following Thursday. A number of homework tasks will be set in Week 1 - the children are to complete any/as many tasks as they would like each week. Extra topic homework can be completed for extra dojos whenever you would like.
We are continuing with our book, 'Who Let The Gods Out?', an exciting story about a boy who meets Virgo, a star constellation, who crashes to Earth. We will follow their adventures and learn about some ancient gods and myths along the way.
