Ash Teacher: Mrs M Haigh TA: Mrs L Reddy/ Mrs S Raza
Welcome to Ash Class!
We’re very excited this year to base our learning on some extremely interesting topics including our current one: The Achievements of the Early Islamic Civilisation. As we move through the year, we can look forward to learning about Water, Interesting Things in Politics since 1066 and the Industrial Revolution. We aim to capture the children’s imaginations and have already got our Science learning underway through investigating like a scientist – planning, setting up and recording experiments. Ash Class aim to fly high with books, and an emphasis will be on reading across all subjects, with more focussed reading skills developed within English and Reading lessons. We will be reading both fiction and non-fiction texts across a range of genres, text types and narratives. In Maths, we will recap and build on learning blocks from the year four curriculum as well as introducing new and more complex concepts and objectives throughout the year. The children will have the opportunity to develop their Maths’ skills across the curriculum too, especially when it comes to recording and presenting data.
Alongside academic skills, we will also be taking time to develop your children’s social and emotional skills at this unprecedented time. Their well-being is at the top of our priorities and central to effective learning. Collective Worship, PSHE, varied classroom activities and outdoor learning opportunities when possible and appropriate will be designed to contribute to their well-being.
We’re all looking forward to a brilliant year 5!
