Tolethorpe (Yr 5)

Our Spring Term Learning 

SEE BELOW FOR HOME LEARNING PACKS FOR WEEK 1 and 2 - MATHS/ENGLISH&READING/TOPIC. WE WILL ALSO BE USING SEESAW TO SET LEARNING ON AND SHARE WORK, AS WELL AS TT ROCKSTARS AND ACCELERATED READER. 

Tolethorpe Class (Year 5) is taught by Miss Kime and supported by Mrs Evans from Monday to Thursdays.

This term we will continue our theme of I'M A YEAR 5, GET ME OUT OF HEEEEEERE!!!

In topic we will be covering everything from rainforest climates, biomes, vegetation belts, creatures in the rainforest (MORE DAVID ATTENBOROUGH), Rainforest clearing and deforestation all the way to Latitude, longitude, Equator, Hemispheres, Arctic/Antarctic and time zones! Our trip this term to Grimsthorpe Estate, will allow us to compare what we know about the conditions of a rainforest and compare that with forests within this country, linking our knowledge all together. This will  also link in with our topic within Science. Living things and their habitats. Exploring adaptations animals and plants make to survive within their habitats, the process they go through and their cycles all the way up until they die. Exploring Sir David Attenbourough's work within this field to help us with  our understanding these processes. 

In English we will be looking at writing to entertain, developing our abilities to create amazing descriptions, fiction and non-fiction narrative writing, and creating a Non chronological report writing based The Sneaglegator! We will also continue reading our class reader The Explorer, and continue following Fred, Con, Max and Lila as they make their way deeper in the depths of the never-ending Amazon Rainforest. We will get to find out if they ever make it out, or if their future is still undecided. 

In PE (Tuesdays, and Thursdays), they will be doing Quick Sticks Hockey with Mr Moutrey, and Circuit Training with me (striving to get a PB over the 6 weeks). Although they are only down to do PE on a Tuesday and Thursday, we do the Daily Mile most days of the week, so their PE kit needs to be present all week to ensure they can partake in this also! 

In Art this term, year 5 will be creating Dioramas of the Rainforest, as well as creating Rainmakers, and Rainforest traditional masks. We will be able to showcase some of this at our Class Assembly on the 25th March 2020! 

As always, there will be lots of exciting enrichment opportunities this term for your child and we greatly appreciate your help and support. If you have any special skill you would like to share (particularly linked with our term's topic), or would just like to come in and give a helping hand you are always welcome! Let us know!
