Welcome to 5CC!
Teacher: Mrs Clutterbuck
Welcome to our class page for the second half of the spring term 2022.
This half term we will be writing newspaper reports on the dreadful deeds of Dr Hammer in 'Spy Fox', and also learning and performing famous 'The Jabberwocky' poem. In maths we will be learning about shape and developing our knowledge of fractions, decimals and percentages. Geography will take us on an exciting journey to the Grand Canyon and in RE we will find out all about Christianity/Salvation. PE is taught on a Monday and Tuesday, and the children come to school in their PE kit.
Below is some key information that you may find useful.
Once every term, children sit a Star Reader assessment which helps in identifying an appropriate book level for them. Every day, the children are given time to read a book of their choice (based on their suggested book level). Once the children have read their books, they can sit an AR quiz which, if they get above 80%, means they can go up a book level. We ask that they spend some time reading at home - whether that’s their AR book, or in the form of a comic, magazine or a non-fiction book on cars (anything that sparks their interest in reading).
We ask that you ensure you record any reading that takes place at home with a simple comment inside your child’s Reading Record. If the children read certain books from our reading recommendation list, they earn a sticker and 5 Dojo points.
Spellings are handed out and tested each fortnight. Please make sure your child is practising their spellings regularly. Children can practise their spellings in any way they like. Below you can see a selection of suggested techniques to help in learning spellings.
Rapid recall of times table facts is an essential skill in maths. At the start of each maths lesson, we spend three minutes on a times table quiz. Linked below are recommended websites for children to use to help in learning their times tables.
