Welcome to Class 10S - Year 5

Our Class Team:

Class Teacher - Mrs Shaw

Classroom Support - Mrs Clare

A Very Warm Welcome to Class Ten S!

We are a Y5 class who always strive to be the best we can be. We are proud of the progress we make in lessons, and as we grow and learn, we are proud to be becoming good people.

WE ARE LEARNING TO LEARN, LEARNING TO LIVE AND LEARNING TO LOVE.

Here are some clues as to how we do it:

Equipment: we always have our planners, reading books and homework books in school every day; our PE kits are in school on Tuesday and our games kits are in school on Fridays; we bring money in a named envelope. Class 10S have flute lessons on Wednesday afternoons and we ensure we are prepared by having our flutes in school.

Swimming lessons currently take place on a Tuesday afternoon and will replace indoor P.E. for those children.

HAVING THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT HELPS US LEARN TO LIVE

Homework: we do spelling and handwriting homework every weekday; at weekends we do other English and Maths tasks - these can be great fun, especially when we have to find things out for ourselves.

DOING HOMEWORK HELPS US LEARN TO LEARN

Friendship: we always respect each others’ points of view; we listen to each other and respond politely; we treat others as we would like to be treated ourselves. Prayer times, charity work and worship help us to feel close friends with God.

BEING FRIENDLY HELPS US LEARN TO LOVE

READING AWARDS: Reading awards assemblies are held at the end of each half term. To earn a bronze certificate children need to read a minimum of five times each week. Platinums are awarded to children who go above and beyond and even read in the holidays! Help class 10S to win the trophy and read lots at home.

 

Our new Author of the Term is Malorie Blackman. We are thoroughly enjoying reading her story 'Operation Gadgetman' in class.

This Term in School...

Our theme this term is 'How might we storm a castle?'

In Science we are learning all about forces and have discussed the difference between weight and mass, looked at how to measure the effect of gravity and how forces can be balanced and unbalanced.

English - we have written non-chronological reports on castle defences and are now enjoying reading suspense stories and identifying the features used by authors to create tension and suspense..

In P.E. we have been developing our skills in invasion games and have been improving our skills in football.

We have also discussed tolerance in class and how, as part of our core British Values, we are a country tolerant and non-judgemental of all manner of people.

In R.E. we have been looking at the Bible and had an interesting and divisive class discussion on whether God was male, female or other. The children had to use quotes from the Bible to support their ideas.

Meet the Teacher

A huge 'Thank You' to all parents who attended 'Meet the Teacher' For those of you who couldn't attend, or would just like a recap of the information shared with you, the powerpoint from the afternoon will soon be attached.

Reading Plus Online

Do continue to encourage the use of this at home. It is designed to improve reading fluency and comprehension as well as developing inference skills (which are vital skills for the SATs). Children can access this at home using their own log-in and it will contribute towards a reading award as long as it is signed by an adult in school planners.

Children can access this at home using their own log-in and can earn certificates each week. The maths class with the most points in a week also recieves the Mathletics Trophy.
