This term, Year 5’s are all back together in the same classroom. They will mostly be taught as a whole class but during some lessons, they will be separated into smaller differentiated groups. The pupils will follow the Year 5 curriculums in all academic areas. Maths will usually begin with a mastery warm-up for all the children before they move on to their respective differentiated groups focusing on work matched to their abilities. English will be taught as a whole class with children revising previously taught skills and also learning new Year 5 skills.
P.E. lessons will be taught on a Tuesday afternoon by Calvin Moorhead and Wednesday afternoon with Mr. Cayley. Children should come to school dressed in their P.E. kits on both P.E. days. It is advisable to wear kit that will keep them warm throughout the day (e.g. tracksuit bottoms not just shorts). Please can children keep a spare pair of trainers at school to wear during P.E. for when the sessions are held on the muddy field.
Swimming will not take place for a while.
Mrs. Steel will be working with many of the children throughout the term, helping to enhance and extend learning.
On Tuesdays, the class will have a computer session with Mr. Towe.
