Year 5 - Jaguar Class
Welcome to Jaguar Class!
Our teacher is Mrs Cole and our teaching assistant is Mrs Chongbang
Welcome back! We have an exciting term ahead of us, leading up to Christmas!
In Term 1, we learnt about Ancient Egypt and had fun writing instructions on how to Mummify a human! We also used clay to make cartouches and learnt how the River Nile was important to Ancient Egyptians.
In Term 2, we will be looking in Geography, at how volcanoes affect the lives of people living near to them. Plus, we will continue learning about Earth and Space in Science.
We are continuing our book - Street Child - a wonderful true story about a boy who has a lot of misfortune in his early life but makes some wonderful connections on his remarkable journey. The book gives us the insight to how the amazing charity 'Barnardo's' was founded!
Our P.E days will still be on Tuesday and Friday. We will be learning football and hockey, so please ensure that the children have the correct PE and suitable for outdoor. Spare PE shoes are a must, as it will be muddy.
Our Forest School day will be every other Monday (our first session will be Monday 31st October - please bring suitable clothing for the weather, and wellies or old trainers that can get muddy.
A number of homework tasks relating to space were set in Term 1 - the children can continue working on these. Additionally, the children will be receiving volcano homework tasks every Monday. We will review homework on Fridays.
The Term 2 document below provides an overview of the planning.
