Year 5

Hello and welcome to Class Biram's website page! 
 
As well as posting on our twitter account (@BiramClass) we will be posting updates on this page regarding our learning. So keep posted to find out what we have been doing this half term.
 
 
 Reading:
 
We encourage children to read at home every night where possible. This can be a combination of independent reading or reading to an adult. These can both be recorded in the children's reading records. Reading records must be brought into school everyday and are all checked on a Friday to ensure the children are reading at home. 
 
In school we have read 'The Twits' (one of my Miss Upton's favourites!) and we are now reading 'The 13 Storey Tree House'. Ask your children about these books to see what they enjoy about them. 
 
PE!
 
This year our PE lesson will be held on a Friday afternoon. Please can you ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit. They will wear their kit all day and leave in it at the end of the day. This is so we can minimise risks in the current COVID pandemic. I would recommend checking the weather the day before to ensure they are wearing appropriate PE kit.
 
The children will participate in an outdoor PE lesson unless the weather becomes too extreme to complete outdoors. It would be recommended that pupils have a T-shirt and shorts in case they become wet during the lesson.
 
Required PE kit:
A blue team Elsecar PE T-shirt;
A pair of black shorts, PE skirt or Skort;
A pair of tracksuit bottoms and a top for outdoor use;
A pair of trainers suitable for the playground and field.
 
Spellings:
 
Your children will be sent home with 10 spellings on a Monday. Each day they will complete spelling activities to help them embed the recall of these spellings and understand their meaning. It is vital that these spellings are also practiced at home, ready for the spelling test on Friday afternoon.
 
 Autumn 1 topic: 
 
"Who were the Pioneers of Pop Art?"
 
We are off to a great start with our new Art topic this half term and we are really enjoying learning about the different famous Pop Artists. We have been looking at the work of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein to see whose work we prefer and the different techniques they use in their work. We all have a favourite Pop Artist, who is yours? 

 
 
Times Table Rock Stars!
 
Please encourage your child to play on Rock stars, it really does make a difference! Ideally 10 minutes a day but whenever they have a spare 5 minutes. Their log in details can be found in their reading records. More information about Rock stars can be found on the school website under the tab Times Table Rock Stars.
 
There is also a Rock stars Twitter page which is @ElsecarTT
 
Common exception words: 
Below you will find documents containing the year 3/4 common exception words an the year 5/6 common exception words. At the minute every Monday we are recapping the 3/4 ones before we move onto the 5/6 ones.
