Year 5 Beret 2021/22
Welcome to Beret Class - Year 5
Thank you for visiting our class page. We hope that you enjoy looking through our gallery of craziness and find some useful information below by following the links. We have had an incredibly busy year so far and have so much more yet to do!
Mrs Hall is our teacher and Mrs Brampton is our teaching assistant.
We have really enjoyed our topics this year and have learnt about them through a range of interesting activities.
Autumn 1: Off With Your Head! (Tudors)
Autumn 2: Hard Rock and Heavy Metal (Stone Age)
Spring 1: Mayans
Spring 2: Stargazing (Space)
Summer 1: Cry me a River
Summer 2: Mighty Rivers
Our PE days are currently are back to a Tuesday and Wednesday. The children should come to school already in their PE kits of a white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers with a green hoodie if needed. Earrings should either be taped up or removed before the lesson. On a Tuesday we are playing games to improve our accuracy of throwing and developing our tactical thinking. On a Wednesday, we are playing cricket.
Our spelling lists are given out at the start of every half term and are usually stuck into our homework books. We are tested on our spellings every Thursday. It would be wonderful if these were practised at home and also tested throughout the week by putting the word into a sentence as we often find that they are spelt correctly in a test, but not in our writing.
We should be taking our reading books home every single day to continue to develop our skills. Our focus at the moment is on our comprehension, checking that we understand what we have read by asking questions about it. We are also looking at inference which is taking the meaning out of something which is not so obvious. A simple example of this is 'the season is likely to be summer because she's wearing sunglasses.' If you'd like any help or support with this then please ask!
