Archbishop Cranmer CofE Primary Academy Striving for life in all its fullness. John 10: 10

Mrs Rogers - Year 5 - Class 4 / 5

Welcome to Class 4/5

 

This page has useful information about the day to day running of Class 4/5 and about what we get up to in our busy, exciting classroom. 

 

In Year 4/5, Mrs Rogers teaches English and maths in the mornings and a mixed Y4/5 class in the afternoons. 

In Year 4, Mrs Davis teaches English and maths each morning. 

We both work alongside our teaching partner, Miss Wilkinson.

 

Our spring term topic is 'Earth and Space'. During our topic lessons, we will explore many aspects of Earth and Space:

  • describe the movement of the Earth, and other planets, relative to the Sun in the solar system

  • describe the movement of the Moon relative to the Earth

  • describe the Sun, Earth and Moon as approximately spherical bodies

  • use the idea of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night and the apparent movement of the sun across the sky.

Our class book will be Cosmic by Frank Cotterell-Boyce. We will study this during our English lessons where we will write a diary entry in the role of Liam Digby being lost in Space, compose an informal letter to his Mum and Dad back on earth and write a fictional narrative from the moment he realises he’s in space. We will explore the book in detail through our reading comprehensions, reciprocal reading lessons and enjoyment for reading throughout the day. 

 

Useful information:

  • Our PE lessons are on Monday afternoons. Please make sure PE kits are in school all week in case of extra opportunities. You may wish to include some warmer clothing for our outdoor sessions, particularly when the weather is colder. PE kits should include socks, a pair of trainers for outdoor games and plimsolls for indoor games. Please make sure that all items of clothing are named.

  • Spellings will be tested every Friday. 10 new spellings will be sent home every Friday to be learned for the following Friday. Children should know how to spell the words and be able to use them in a sentence. This is very important and will also be tested. 

  • Times tables will be tested every Friday. Children will be given 6 minutes to complete the multiplication and division facts up to 12x. This forms part of a tracker as children work through awards. Each week they will focus on a different times table individualised to their learning up to 12x12. If children achieve all times tables up to 12, they will begin mixed.  

  • The Year 5 Reading Challenge challenges children to read at least 3 times or more to an adult outside of school each week. Reading records are collected in every Friday. If children have read enough, they give themselves a tick on our class reading chart. If they have read at least 3 times a week, every week, all half-term, they will receive a special reward. 

  • Creative Homework should be completed once every term. This will always be themed around our current learning topic. Look out for the creative homework leaflet where you will find a range of ideas for  projects your child could complete! Parents and carers are invited to our classroom to celebrate the children's wonderful homework once every term. 

  • The cloakroom noticeboard is full of useful information including the week's spellings, timetables, dinner menus and up-to-date letters. 

Please follow us on Twitter @AslocktonSchool to see us in action on our incredible learning journey in Class 4/5.

How to compete the times table homework

Still image for this video
Remember to follow the grid horizontally. Basic multiplication is commutative which means the arrangement doesn't matter - show me this:
5x 4= 20 so 4 x 5 = 20.
We then move to the corresponding division facts. Start with the bigger number otherwise we won't end up with whole numbers as our answers! Division isn't commutative so we can't just swap the numbers.
20 ÷ 5 = 4 therefore 20 ÷ 4 = 5.
