Welcome back to another school year at James Brindley, I hope you have had a lovely and relaxing summer.
Here is our year 5 class webpage where you will find lots of useful information regarding year 5 (please also remember that we do also have a school Twitter account where news and pictures are regularly uploaded).
**Please note that if our class bubble is isolating and the need for home learning to recommence, all work will be accessed from our class page and Purple Mash will resume as a means of communication between myself and the children.
During the Autumn Term our topic will be Geography based, we will be focusing on the question, “Why is the rainforest important to us?”. Children will be able to identify and explain the position of different rainforests on a world map. Examining South America, we will begin to understand the significance of the Amazon River and study endangered wildlife in the region. Children will further explore the Amazon Rainforest through our class novel ‘Journey to the River Sea’, a story set in the heart of the rainforest.
I can't wait to welcome you all back!
Homework and Spellings
Attached below is your 'Pick and Mix' homework which is based on our current topic the Rainforest. This homework task will be your homework up until Christmas. Each week pick one activity to complete as part of your homework. Written tasks can be completed in your homework book. Please note, I DO NOT expect your homework piece to be brought in weekly. Instead, I will ask at half term for your to take pictures of the work you have completed and send it to me through Purple Mash. Every Thursday I will be asking you which task you have completed that week and I will keep a record of this in school. ENJOY!
You will also continue to complete your spellings using Spelling Shed. New spellings will be uploaded on a Thursday to be learnt throughout the week before our spelling test the following Thursday. Use this link to access Spelling Shed https://www.spellingshed.com/en-gb
