As the summer holidays are coming to an end for another year, myself and the adults from Larch Class are extremely excited to welcome you all back to school!
In order to keep everyone safe when we come back, some of us will be starting school on different days but don't worry because we will all be together very soon! For those of you who will be returning to school at a later date, there will be a home learning menu for you to access on this class page as well as a range of activities to complete on Purple Mash. To access the Purple Mash activities, you will need to use your personal Purple Mash log in details.
As a whole school, we will be looking at two books when we return; The Rainbow Fish and Here We Are. These books explore the world that we live in and we will be having many debates and discussions about them! We are also hoping to produce some super art work and writing around these books.
Another thing to remember is that you will not need to bring any P.E kit into school until told otherwise. This is another way in which we are making sure that you are safe within school and this doesn't mean that you will be missing out on any P.E lessons!
On a personal note, I am so excited to see the whole of Larch Class again and to hear about how amazing your summer holidays have been. See you soon!
Welcome to Larch Class!
Larch is a Year 5 class. On this page you will find key information about our class: important timetable information, members of staff and information about what we are learning in class.
The teacher in Larch is Mr Hunt. Mr Clifford, Mrs Kuzmich and Mrs Wallett are LSAs in class.
We recognise the importance of children reading regularly. We encourage children to read three times at home to an adult, three times at home to themselves and three times at school to themselves. Children are rewarded for meeting their reading targets.
P.E and Other Activities
P.E is timetabled for Wednesday mornings. Sometimes there may be opportunities to do P.E at other times of the week. It is, therefore, important that P.E kits remain in school throughout the week. On Thursday afternoons, children in our class attend a variety of exciting activities across school: gardening, sewing, art/craft, baking and ICT etc. Some of these activities may require children to bring in additional clothing/footwear and other items into school. Children who have been selected to attend such activities will be given a letter detailing what they will need to bring in to school.
Our topic during the Autumn term was the Greeks. We focused our literacy work upon our class book: Who Let the Gods Out, as well as looking at a selection of Greek Myths. During science lessons, we concentrated on the work of Archimedes and even tried out some of his clever inventions! More details of our learning throughout this year is available to see on our parent forecast.
During this half term, our topic is 'The States of Matter'. This science based topic will consist of the children being able to carry out a number of investigations and experiments to find answers to their burning questions/hypotheses. The new homework menu (that can also be found on this class page) will also require the children to carry out further, scientific research!
