Year 5 - Tiger Class

Welcome to Tiger Class, our teacher is Mr Hillier.

Welcome to Term 5!

This term, we will be learning all about volcanoes! Our learning will take us to the wonderful island of Iceland, where volcanoes are a part of resident's every-day lives. We will be learning how they cope with living alongside one of nature's monsters as well as delving back in time to understand the impact of one particular eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the city of Pompeii. 

As always, we will have a class book. This term, we will be reading The Last Wild by Piers Torday. You can see a picture of the front cover below. What do you think the book might be about?

This term, we will be taking advantage of our wonderful forest school. We will be visiting every other Tuesday morning. Children will need old clothes that they don't mind getting wet and muddy!

PE this term wil be on a Monday and Wednesday. We are lucky to have a boxing coach who will be working with us each Monday afternoon, which will be great fun!

Welcome back to Term 4!

Tiger class will be taking part in PE on Wednesday and Friday afternoons. Wednesday will be indoors and Friday will be on the field, so please ensure children have warm clothes for those cold afternoons! 

It is vitally important that children read every night at home, as well as spend time on TT RockStars and Spelling Shed. Children have their own log-in details for these, but please come and ask if you cannot find them.

We are very lucky to have the help of Miss Redwood in Tiger class. She will be working with us every day, supporting in class and carrying out interventions. We also have Mrs Taylor, who assists across year 5.
