Welcome to Class 5, taught by Mr Hutchinson and supported by Mrs Bostock.
During our last week of term we were able to welcome back a small bubble of Class 5 children (Ali Haider, Adil, Subhan Isiam, Hamza and Mahanoor), dubbed the Alligator bubble. It was wonderful to have the children back with us including a new member to our class, Mariyam. They had the opportunity to spend time in the new classroom for class 5 (the old staff room) and to meet the new Class 6 teacher, Mr Harrison. The children were very sensible and showed how they had matured during the lock down, quickly getting used to the new school routines. We had a lot of fun being back together and the children produced some spectacular work that can be seen below.
We look forward to having the rest of Class 5 back with us at Holy Trinity in September, until then enjoy the summer holidays.
Class 5 recently visited the City of York as part of our Viking topic of study in History. We had a fantastic time learning about how the city was once a Viking settlement of the Danelaw known as Jorvik. We had an opportunity to visit the museum, handle ancient artefacts and went on a ride to discover that not all Vikings were vicious.
This half-term we will be:
Things to note:
Spring Term 1
LEARNING: During this half term we shall be reading How to Train your Dragon, writing a character description and instructions. In Mathermatics we will read and interpretate data from graphs and tables whilst also ordering, adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions. In science we shall conduct experiments to further examine the properties of a variety of materials and exploring changes to states of matter. Whilst researching who the Vikings were in history, we will further study their way of life by visiting the Jorvik Centre in York! Finally, we will investigate how we can have a healthy life style by making our own bread.
HOMEWORK: Learning Log tasks are taken home each Friday to be returned the following Thursday. The children have completed some impressive pieces already this year, including their own narratives and monstrous sea creatures. In addition to the learning logs, the children also bring home spellings on a Friday for a test the following Thursday. Home reading books are changed regularly and we ask that the children spend at least 10 minutes reading each night. Your child will also be bringing home a library book to enjoy.
PE KIT: Please ensure that the children have their kit (black shorts, white t-shirt and pumps/trainers) in school each Monday.
It will be an exciting term. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
