Welcome to Year 5. Croeso!
Staff in Year 5: Mrs S. Reece & Miss M. Gale
I am absolutely thrilled to have you all in my class this year! I intend to continue to work as hard as I can, to ensure I can help you become the best that you can be. Miss Gale and I are both excited to see lots of your smiles as we learn new and exciting things together.
It has been a very strange year and things are somewhat different but to have you back full time in class is something we are looking forward to so much. We can't wait to help you learn and are excited to learn new things from you. Learning is a two way process and it is important we help each other along our journeys. There will be many things that are different to last year, and that is good because change can be exciting! Let's embrace it safely together and have lots of fun learning. We can't wait!
2020 -2021 topics
AUTUMN TERM THEME:
Vile Victorians. You have already stated what they would like to learn during this term in our EPIC (Everyone Planning In Class) sessions. Please see the flowchart and the newsletter sent for this term.
PE Days: In Key Stage 2, we have two sessions of PE a week. Please make sure you are wearing suitable outdoor clothing and trainers for these sessions. We have our sessions on a Thursday and a Friday. There may be times where the nature reserve may be utilised also, and it may be a little muddy in the Autumn months. Please help us by reminding Mums and Dads to work with us and make sure you understand that sometimes, footwear may be a little muddy at times.
Reading At Casllwchwr, we do many forms of reading:
Guided reading in groups and whole class (same text for whole group- decided by the teacher with lots of talk involved teaching objectives)
Shared (paired ,group and whole class)
Independent (own choice)
Please make sure you have access to your reading books into school every day Keep your Reading Eggs password safe! I understand it may be hard for Mums and Dads to hear you read every night, so be independent and read to yourself when they can’t hear you. Try to alternate it as much as possible and try to read a range of books.
Mondays: Homework given out on a Monday and to be completed by the Friday. Check our class blog weekly for the set tasks. This can be found by going to the tree on the left hand side of the school website and clicking 'Class Blogs' and then you search for the Y5 blog.
Reading every night for 20 minutes
Oracy Projects: 1 in the Autumn linked to topic and 1 in the Summer, linked to topic. These need to be something that you are interested in.
I am really excited for us to learn together!
Mrs Reece will endeavour to reply as soon as possible.
