Welcome to Wheal Dream Class - Year 5!
 
Year 5 have a very exciting year ahead of them. The children will be learning how to become more independent individuals and using the school's values to drive their learning.
 
 
Topic
 
Our topic this half-term is 'The Great Plague'. We will be learning about how the plague started, what affect it had on the people of London and the many truths and myths linked to the outbreak.
 
Please check the website for updates with photographs and information relevant to Wheal Dream Class.
 
For more information about the exciting things we will be learning this half-term please have a look at the medium term plan that is attached to this page.
 
Throughout the year, we strive to make regular cross-curricular links to ensure the children have a wholesome experience of learning.
 
 
PE
 
On ??? we take part in P.E lessons where we learn to move in different ways, follow instructions and use our own space and equipment safely and effectively. 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 The Great Plague.
 
 
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.
 
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 'Noticing'. We will be learning the importance of noticing and looking at how we can apply this in our day-to-day lives.
 
 
 
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.
