Year 5 Ash Class
Class Teacher Mrs Suzan Kern - firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello Year 5.
Firstly, may I say a massive ‘welcome back.’ The children have slotted back into school life brilliantly. During our first week we enjoyed attending two online science workshops: one called ‘Odd Ways to Measure things’ and the other ‘Incredible Oceans.’ The children also had an enjoyable morning at Forest School where they were able to really reconnect as a class.
Over the past two weeks, we have been enjoying reading, writing and watching a wide range of fairy tales. This has led to some high-quality in class discussion and writing. In maths we have spent time reviewing the units of work which I set during lockdown. I have been impressed with the progress the children have made.
Looking forward to the next two weeks.
Thank you to everyone who has purchased a copy of the next class reader: ‘Dragon Mountain’. We began reading it this week and are already enjoying it. As always, I would encourage the children to read or enjoy listening to a story every day at home. Please record any reading in your planner.
In Maths we are focussing on learning fractions using the Maths No Problem approach. This video may remind you of the key language relating to fractions: https://corbettmathsprimary.com/2018/07/16/adding-fractions-1-video/
