Ali Baba, Who Dunnit detective stories by Philip Pulman, The Lost Thing by Shaun Tann, range of information, instruction and explanation texts, and assorted poetry anthologies.

This term our topic is Victorians.

Our history and geography focus for this term will be based on various aspects of The Victorians beginning beginning  with a look at sketching Victorian artefacts. Next, we find out about the life of Victorian school children, their families, toys and their homes. The children will make miniature 3D dolls houses based on pictures and models of Victorian homes.

Homework:

Maths will usually be set on a Friday to be handed in the following Thursday. Homework may be computer based (MyMaths) or paper based. Grammar or punctuation will usually be set on a Wednesday to be handed in the following Wednesday. Presentation expectations are the same as those for classwork.
Please encourage your child to read regularly at home both to themselves and to an adult. Children are also encouraged to regularly access ‘Bug Club’ to help improve comprehension skills.
Times Table Rockstar's is valuable in improving speed and accuracy of multiplication facts. Each week a TTRockstar of the week is chosen and celebrated in assembly. Winners are children who show improvement or great skill in time table recall. 

PE:

The Year 5 children will attend swimming lessons on Thursday morning.  Games lessons for year 4 children will be delivered on a Thursday. Outdoor lessons will take place on a Thursday afternoon and the children will learn athletics and rounders. This is dependent upon weekly weather conditions.  It is therefore important that in addition to school PE kit (navy shorts and light blue t-shirt), the children have pumps or trainers and a track suit in school AT ALL TIMES so that they are prepared for an  outdoor lesson.
