Raven Class (Year 5)

Welcome to Ravens Class
Class Teacher: Mrs J. Sydney
Teaching Assistant: Miss A. McLeod, 1:1 support Mrs L. Taylor, Student Teacher Miss A. Johnston
Welcome to Class 5.  Here, we strive to ensure that every member of our class develops the confidence and resilience to be willing to take risks and challenge themselves in their learning. It is important to us that children are not afraid to ‘have a go’, make choices for themselves and sometimes make mistakes. We want children to learn to value the mistakes they make and see them as part of their journey to success.
Our aim is for everyone to have fun and try their best with the help and support
of one another.

Miss McLeod, Mrs Taylor, Miss Johnston and I are delighted to welcome you all to Raven Class.

Autumn Term 2018

Our current topic is ‘Shakespeare’, which will take us up to the Christmas break.  This will be mostly history-based.  Our intended curriculum coverage for this half term is available here: Medium-Term-Planning-Raven-Class-autumn-2-2017

The text for our current ‘Talk for Writing’ (Problem/Resolution stories) is included here: Should Daleks be allowed to live on Earth This is a ‘Discussion Text’, rather than a Problem/Resolution story.
This is our current timetable: Year-5-timetable-autumn-2-2018
More information regarding this half term’s learning is contained in the October class newsletter: Raven-Class-Newsletter-October-2018
Please make sure that your child has a water bottle and a coat now that we are experiencing some colder and damper days.  Can we please also gently remind you that your child’s PE kit should be in everyday.  Forest School will take place on a Thursday afternoon until Christmas.
If you have yet to return photo permissions for your child, could we please have them as soon as  is convenient.

Please help your child to meet their reading target by recording their reading in their diaries and encouraging them to read a broad range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry.  Reading diaries need to be brought in every day in order that we can check them.  In addition, please ensure your child practises the key maths facts daily from the sheet which they brought home at the start of this half term.  By supporting your child in these areas, you will be greatly helping them with their learning in school.
