Welcome to Beech Class!
Our teacher is Mrs Routh. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Parkinson and Mrs Alam!
Important things to remember:
Please practise weekly spellings, TimesTables and try to read every day.
Indoor PE kit must stay at school, if it is taken home it must be returned the following day. Please note that our PE days have changed and are now Monday and Thursday (outdoor).
Spring 2- Mrs Routh- Year 5. We will be finding out about the features of non-chronological reports along with reading and researching to produce our own reports. We will then be reading 'Goodnight Mister Tom' written by Michelle Magorian, as part of our historical setting unit. We will explore and create setting descriptions along with comparing with different settings.
Please make sure weekly spellings are practised, and spelling books return to school every Friday.
Mrs Routh- In Maths we will be concentrating on embedding place value including negative numbers. Knowledge and understanding of Roman numerals will be recapped and built upon. Children will develop their skills in using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division including the use of formal written methods. We will also move onto measurement including conversion, plotting coordinates and measuring/drawing angles.
Please remember to use Times Table Rock Stars to embed multiplication tables and related division facts. Every Friday we have a times table test based on the table each child is focussing on that week.
In Science, we will be looking at states of matter. We will determine the properties of solids, liquids and gases as well as exploring how water changes states.
In computing, we will be designing and making our own educational games using SCRATCH software. We will evaluate games already online and use positives from these to help us create our own games. Once we have made them, we are hoping to add our games to the school website for everyone to have a go! Watch this space!
