Welcome to Year 5

Miss Wood

 

Miss Wood's Y5 class

This term our learning challenge question is:

Why is chocolate so moreish?

 

Reading books and planners

Please can your child have their reading book and planner in school every day. Feel free to use it as a means of talking to me or asking any questions. You can also call in to school to see me at any time, I am around everyday after school.

 

PE kits

From November 2020, children are wearing their PE to school. Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. PE kits should consist of plain black shorts or black/dark-coloured bottoms, a plain white t-shirt and good footwear for being active. A school jumper can be worn on top to stay warm, or another plain jumper. 

For P.E., please can you ensure that long hair is tied back, and earrings have been taken out.

 

Homework

 

English

We expect your child to read each evening. Their progress can be recorded in their reading record and if they read three times a week they will earn ten house points.

Children have access to a huge range of books on their iPads through J2e, and logging into the Bug Club app. This is something the children can access at home too. 

Children will be given 10 spellings to learn each week and they will be tested on a Monday. Homework is given out on a Monday and due in on the following Monday.

 

Maths

Please encourage your child to access Doodle Maths, Maths Flex and Rockstar Times Tables at home.

 

 

Topic

Summer 5 Project

Whodunnit?

 

This term we are going to be learning about how members of Crime Scene Investigation teams solve crime using science.

 

For your project, we would like you to make a crime scene shoebox.

 

You can make it a burglary, kidnapping or even a murder.
Think about what evidence has been left at the scene for the CSI team to use:

Fingerprints
Shoeprints
Bite Mark Analysis
Chromatography
DNA Analysis
CCTV

Additional Material:
Wanted Poster, Police Report, Mugshot, Witness Statement.

 

If you need any resources then please let your class teacher know so we can get them for you.

The project is due in on: Monday 24th May

Kind Regards,

 Miss Turner, A Wood
