Miss Howson's Class
Miss Howson’s Year 5 class page!
Miss Howson teaches Mondays to Thursdays, Mrs Radmall teaches every Friday.
In Year 5, we strive to work really hard whilst also having fun – this is the way, we hope to achieve fantastic learning and progress!
All the children have their own personal learning targets for reading, writing and maths, which identify their next steps in learning, as well as personal targets for the year which they set themselves in discussion with the teacher.
These targets are regularly reviewed and updated so that all children can track how brilliantly they are learning and identify what they need to do to get even better!
Our mission statement is: 'It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities'.
Our class target this term is: Everyone will be reading fluently and be much more confident with their times tables by Christmas.
We will set homework each Monday to be completed by the following Monday.
This will include:
One doodle maths added extra task. (Children can still access the Doodle 7 a day as many times a week as they would like if they wish to.)
Two Reading Plus 'reading assignment' sessions of 30mins each per week.
Spellings on the school website for children to practise. Week 1 is set A spellings which was 14-09-20, week 2 is set B spellings which is 21-09-20 etc. They will be set on Monday and tested the following Friday.
We strongly recommend that children also practise Timestables Rock Stars – as regularly as possible please.
The children are responsible for taking their reading books home and bringing them to school every day. The children are more than welcome to bring in a book from home to read in school. It would be very helpful if you could hear your child read out loud and listen for fluency, intonation and expression, as often as possible.
Our PE day is Friday (however the children should have their trainers with them each day of the week in a draw-string bag).
Autumn term Topic
During this term, the children will be transported back in time to the Anglo-Saxon and Viking era. They wll learn about the struggle for power and find out details of some of the famous battles that occurred. By the end of the term, the children will know what life was like for Anglo Saxons and Vikings and how this era has impacted upon their lives today.
