Green 5

Here is the information you will need for Summer Term in Year 5.

Our Green 5 team is:
Mrs Adeyemo – Green 5 Teacher
Miss Etem – Y5 HLTA
Mr Jones – Y5 teaching assistant
Mrs Ravagnan – Y5 teaching assistant

Our topic is:

‘Building Bridges’
We will be reading ‘The London Eye Mystery’ by Siobhan Dowd and writing a character description and a police report based on the story. We will be learning about place value, coordinates, angles and multiplication in maths. Our science unit will be Forces. We will be researching into the structure of bridges and creating model bridges in teams. We will be deepening our understanding of how we form friendships and maintain them as well as developing our ability to show resilience and perseverance.

Homework: Children have an independent learning book with a guided list of ideas about our topic. These are just ideas and children are free to explore the topic in other interesting and exciting ways should they choose. Please make sure your children are learning their spellings and times tables each week.

Trips:
Thursday 19th April 2018 – London Eye
TBC – exploring the River Thames and its bridges

P.E. Kits
Green 5 will need their P.E. kits (dark tracksuit bottoms/leggings/shorts, plain white t shirt, trainers/plimsolls) on Tuesdays each week.

Other information: Please try and read with your child each night. Their reading records are checked on a Wednesday, when we expect to see at least 5 entries (completed by yourself or your child).

 

Many thanks,

Mrs Adeyemo
