Year 5 Class - 5E - Autumn - 2019 - 2020

Welcome to Class 5E
Our Teacher is Mr Edwards and our teaching assistant is Mrs Clews.
We're looking forward to a wonderful year!
Things to remember;
Our dance day is Tuesday.
Our PE day is Wednesday.
Please make sure P.E kits stay in school all week. Tracksuits will be needed shortly as the weather starts to get a bit colder!
Homework is given out on Monday and should be returned completed on a Friday. Each week there will be a Maths and an English task connected to the work we will be doing in class that week. 
Spellings can be practised every night using the look, say, cover, write, check method. And times tables can be practised with speed and accuracy sheets.
These skills are very important as we prepare for Year 6! 
Please also try to read every night! Children who read every night and bring their reading records in every day will be rewarded with certificates and book marks as they progress up our reading ladder. 
We appreciate all of your time and help and hope to make lots of progress and have lots of fun this year!
Mr Edwards and Mrs Clews

Map Work
We have been researching where in the world Wales and Argentina are in our new Geography topic. We will be studying what these two countries have in common.
First Dance Lesson
Today we had our first dance lesson of Year 5. It might be early but we think we have a good chance of winning the Dance Competition this year!
Savanah Songs
We started learning 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' in our first Music lesson. It was fun taking on the different parts and getting the chance to sing solo.

Can you only ever call one place your home?
for our discussion.
Place Value
This week in Maths we have been looking at place value and comparing numbers up to 1 000 000.
Fitness in PE
This week in PE we worked on our fitness so that we are ready for a new term.
