Welcome to Wheal Dream Class - Year 5!
 
 With a fantastic half of the academic year under our belt, Wheal Dream are excited to continue learning about the Romans, whilst warmly inviting our new topic of Properties & Changes of Materials. We are extremely excited to have Michael Morpurgo's famous novel of 'Kensuke's Kingdom' as our inspiration for writing this term.

 Please be aware that P.E slots may be subject to change and we would appreciate it if P.E kits are kept in school all week. 
 
 
Homework
 
At St Uny Church of England Academy, we believe homework is anything children do outside of the normal school day that contributes to their learning, in response to guidance from the school. Homework encompasses a whole variety of activities instigated by teachers and parents/carers to support the children's learning. Please see the 'Chilli Challenge' homework grid attached to this page. The homework grid has a variety of exciting tasks and activities linked to our topic.
 
 
Reading

Reading should be enjoyed daily - please ensure that your child reads either independently or with somebody at home and that their reading is recorded in their reading record. The children are thoroughly enjoying working towards their next 'Reading Karate' bands, so please keep up with the fantastic support and excitement!
 
If you would like more information about why reading at home is so important please follow the link below or read the attached DFE study.
 
Please view the pdf at the bottom of this page for sentence stems to verbally discuss with your child to ensure constructive feedback is given.
 
 
 
Building Learning Power

Our learning power this half-term is 'Questioning'. We will be learning the importance of questioning and looking at how we can multiply our learning opportunities by asking many questions throughout our learning journeys. 
 
 
If you have any questions or queries, please always feel free to catch Mr Smith, Ms Stockle or Mrs Tonkin at the end of the day or arrange an appointment via the school's office.
