Class 5


Teachers                              Mr D Bond and Mrs S Haslam

Teaching Assistants     Mrs E Thomas and Mrs S Brain

So far this term we will be learning all about our local area, and will be learning about areas abroad in our topic Home and Away. We have enjoyed learning lots about the area we live in and are looking forward to learning about places on the other side of the world!

In literacy we will firstly be writing instructions on how to cross the road safely. Thanks to road safety week we are now experts at crossing the road safely and would like to prove this by writing instructions for other children so that they know how to cross the road safely too. We will also be writing stories in familiar settings and will take a particular focus on the settings around us in Hoylandswaine. We will be going on a walk around Hoylandswaine describing the setting we are in and will link this closely to our topic work. We will also be conveying an image through poetry - maybe on our walk in and around Hoylandswaine. We will be inspired to convey the image of beautiful, wild flowers in our local area through poetry! Amongst all this literacy, we will also be learning lots of SPaG that will help us become very technical writers!

In maths we will be continuing our work on fractions, as well as looking at properties of shape and statistics, along with our work on financial education. Maybe we could present data on how many species of flowers we see on our walk around the village?

As well as our work with Mr Bond and Mrs Haslam, we will be working with Miss Lockwood our Sports Coach in PE and other specialist teachers in RE, Computing, Music and French during the week. To find out more about what we will be learning, please feel free to download our Curriculum Letter below and take a look.

We would just like to remind you of a few things…
