Well class 5, here we go again! But please do not worry, whether in school or not I am here to support you with anything you need. Today, teachers will be busily working to sort remote learning out for you, so parents, PLEASE regularly check your emails for any important updates that come through. In the mean time, please access work below. If you finish all this and want to do some more, please use busy things!
Do not complete more than day 1 as these will then be used in the coming days.
Any questions, please direct them to the class email: email@example.com
It is now statutory that if a child is not in school due to COVID-19, that they access work remotely. All children in their reading diaries have their own individual login for the app, Teams.
This can be accessed through our school learning hub (see link below).
They have been shown in school how to use this and a tutorial will be shared with you.
We have chosen to use this platform as it means we can do live teaching/videos as well as have all the work files in one place for you to access. We are still in the process of finalising this, so below we also have uploaded work should you have any issues accessing Teams.
All work must be shown to your class teacher, either by the class email or bringing in work upon return to school. There may also be opportunities to upload work via Teams, however, if we require this, we will inform you.
It is also vital that if you do not have access to the internet or a device to access online learning, you must inform me ASAP!
Link for Remote Learning - DO NOT USE YET! SEE WORK BELOW

For your reading, please see the link and watch 1 video from the Read Write Inc Website.
After that, please see the comprehension for that day.
Along side the above, please access Busy Things using your login where you will find assigned work to complete. This is under the 'My Assignments' section. (Link below)

Advent Term Curriculum Letter
This is a one page profile for class 5. There are pictures and key information for any children who would like it to support them settling into Class 5.
Reading and Writing
Read Write Inc will be continuing now children are back in school. Children will have daily sound lessons which will support basic reading as well as comprehension. Please continue to read with your child at home at least 4-5 times per week. In our Talk for Writing lessons this term, we will be focusing on spelling, punctuation, grammar and basic skills which will support children as we move into our first unit of work; Jack and the Beanstalk.
In maths, as a school we use the Big Maths programme which breaks the teaching into steps and requires children to complete one step before moving on to the next. Our display has our progress drives on, so children can see what step they are currently on and what they must do in order to achieve the next step. We love the programme, particularly using the different characters to support our learning. We have all progressed through lots of steps already this year and as a Class, our maths has improved immensly. We love challenges within maths that push us, and we look forward to pushing ourselves further so we can be even better Mathematicians.
In RE, we use the 'Come and See' programme to teach the children about not only the Catholic Church, but also other Religions around the world, e.g, Islam and Judaism. So far, we have learnt all about, Beginnings, Signs and Symbols, Preparations, Books and Thanksgiving. We are able to recognise, retell and describe many different stories from the Bible and we really enjoy learning about the different religions and deepening our understanding within the Catholic Church.
In Science, we are developing our Scientific skills such as observing, predicting, investigating and proving through a range of areas of Science. Looking at our Learning Journey, we have learnt lots about plants and trees using good vocabulary such as deciduous and evergreen. We have learnt all about materials, light, animal groups and also how to make a basic electrical circuit. We love our Science lessons, particularly when we can predict and complete an experiment.
History and Geography
In History and Geography, we are following our new scheme of work where we look at a range of Geographical places and Historic events. In History, we have loved learning about Rosa Parks and Martin Luther-King where we have discussed their impact on society. We have created a timeline of WW1 and thought about the main events that occurred during the war.
In Geography, we have learnt all about the oceans, continents, Uk countries, including their capitals, London and Derbyshire. We have thought about the physical features as you can see on our learning journey.
Core Learning Skills
Our DRAGON is a fundamental part of our school day and beyond. We have been recently discussing different scenarios that of which encourage us to become more independent. As well as this, we have complete Learning Forums, where we sit and discuss as a class what we have done well and something we think may be improved. Consequently, 2 main targets are set for both Mr Annable and the children of Class 5. We all try our ultimate best to achieve these goals. Currently, we are focusing on our presentation and the use of our Driver words by challenging ourselves in our RE lessons.
