Kingfisher

Welcome back to Kingfisher Class!

 

After such a lovely, long easter break, we have returned ready to make the most of the last term of Year 5. We’ve had some gorgeous weather already and it’s so much fun to be able to play on our grassed outdoor areas.

 

We have settled back well into our bubbles and are maintaining government guidelines to stay safe. Our learning is focussed on consolidating existing skills and addressing any gaps from the last 12 months. Maths has started with an Area and Perimeter re-cap. In English, we are learning from Information Texts. Reading remains a whole school priority as this underpins every subject. This involves Book Club every morning and an expectation for children to read independently at home for at least 30 minutes each day. We will be extending our mapping skills in Geography, and in Science we’ll be learning about the properties of materials and how they change. PE this term focuses on Cricket, with many additional summer events in the pipeline!

 

All children are proficient using Google Classroom, which I will continue to use for Homework Tasks. A spelling overview was sent home last term, but this can also be found on Google Classroom. This term there will be an additional timetable of IXL tasks to complete at home to consolidate and extend our in-class learning.  

 

Thank you to all parents and families for their continued help in keeping everyone safe and for supporting children’s learning.
