Home Learning 2021
Hi Larch Class, I hope you are all keeping safe and well! It is extremely sad that we cannot be together during these coming weeks but we will not let this get in the way of our thirst for learning! It is absolutely essential that you consistently access the online, remote learning that will take place on a daily basis. As a class, we will be meeting every day through Microsoft Teams. There will be online lessons to attend, watch and take part in, activities to complete and challenges to be met all through the Microsoft teams website. Daily, there will also be a variety of different activities to complete on Purple Mash and TT Rockstars. You will also be set some reading to do on the Oxford Owl Reading Website (Details on how to access this are below on this class page). All of the above will be checked and monitored on a regular basis by Mr Hunt, Mr Clifford and Miss Hendry so I can only again insist how important it is that you access the online learning and resources every day! If you have any worries, concerns or questions then please contact me through Microsoft Teams or Purple Mash.
Reading is a fundamental skill and it is incredibly important to continue to read a wide variety of books at home. Whether you are learning from home or in school, it is important to read as much as possible to improve your reading stamina, develop your word knowledge and ultimately enjoy immersing yourself in the wonderful world of story telling.
On the website, there is now a dedicated folder to 'Reading'. It is under 'Parents' and then 'Reading'. This page explains about the Oxford Reading Scheme and gives yourself and your adults useful tips on how to support reading at home. It has some fantastic suggestions of questions to ask when reading at home and offers guidance for parents to feedback to teachers about their child's reading.
Below this post, you will find a range of useful documents to support you with your reading at home.

Home Learning - Science 2021 Spring 1
Hi Larch Class, this half term we will be exploring a new science topic - Light! To support your learning with this, please visit the link below:
Once you are onto the Explorify home page, please then have a look at the section/activities based around 'Light'. You will need to look at the age appropriate activities (age 9-11) and see what you can find out! Adults, please support your children with this and make any notes or take any pictures of the activities that you complete so that you can send me them through email on Purple Mash! I will also be setting a range of Science activities and lessons through Microsoft Teams - including some exciting experiments that we can do even though we aren't together in class!
I'm looking forward to seeing, reading and hearing about all the scientific learning that you do!
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 and Miss Hendry are the LSA's in Larch.
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
At the moment, under the current guidelines we must follow in school, your child is not required to bring a P.E kit with them into school. All P.E lessons will be carried out in a safe way that adheres to all of the guidelines that we must follow. Our P.E lessons will occur weekly on a timetable and will consist of a range of learning that will take place both indoor and outdoor!
Our topic during the Autumn term is Ancient Egypt. We will focus our literacy work upon our class book: The Red Pyramid, as well as looking at a selection of texts relevant to the topic. At the beginning of the term, we will also be exploring the book 'Here We are', focusing upon the key messages within it and producing a piece of creative writing linked to the book itself.
In Maths we will be looking at Place Value, before moving on to Addition and Subtraction. We will be working with numbers all the way up to a million and adding/subtracting 4-digit numbers. As always witin our learning in year 5, we will be using our mathematical skills and applying them to problem solving and reasoning questions!
More details of our learning throughout this year is available to see on our parent forecast.
