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. Miss Stockwell, Miss Booth and Miss Evans 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
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! P.E kits must be brought into school on a Monday and this will need to stay in school all week.
Our topic during the Autumn term is the Shang Dynasty. We will focus our literacy work upon our class book: Holes, as well as looking at a selection of texts relevant to our topic. At the beginning of the term, we will also be exploring the book 'Shine', 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 within 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.
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.
