Welcome to Miss Knowles’ class - Year 5
Miss Knowles, Year 5, Spring 1
Our topic this term is based on the book ‘The Lost Thing’ by Shaun Tan
How the curriculum will be covered
In English we will be basing our work on the text The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan. During the term the children will have the opportunity to write different types of text. These include; character descriptions, non-chronological reports, narratives and newspapers We will also be looking at how to include both the year 4 and 5 grammar in our work, such as:
We will be using the Power maths scheme of work in our online and in-school lessons looking at how to develop our reasoning and problem-solving skills. Our topics will include area and perimeter, multiplication and division and fractions. In support of this we will be regularly using times table rock stars to support our understanding of the multiplication and division topic. Additional resources will be sent out to parents where necessary to support their child’s individual needs.
Wider curriculum subjects
Our wider curriculum subjects will be covered on a weekly rota basis, on the week we have a particular subject the children both at home and school will have a range of activities to choose from that are easily accessible to them-set by the subject leader- that provide challenge and promote curiosity within those subjects.
Daily tasks set
Each day in year 5 the children will have a wellbeing activity, maths, grammar, literacy and guided reading task set with an afternoon menu to choose from. The children will have access to times table rock stars and spelling shed to keep practising those skills.
During this time for children at home I will be available on dojo as much as possible whilst teaching the key worker children and be in touch on a weekly basis to see how things are going! If anyone has any questions or needs additional resources I will be happy to help.
Thank you, stay safe
