Welcome to Griffin Class 2019-2020
I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and I want to wish you all a Very Happy New Year.
It seems ridiculous saying we are in half term 3 already, I can’t believe how fast the first term went. We have another busy half term ahead of us, a breakdown of the children’s learning can be found on the next page or the school website.
As we move into 2020, if any of you have any spare time and would like to come and read with the children we would welcome you with open arms. If this is of interest just to you just pop in and see me or send a message on Dojo.
This terms topic is ……..
Our topic is called The Romans and has two foci, one being history and the other being science. Over the half term our learning objectives will be:
In History we will:
Talk for writing – Is a quest story called The Fire Python.
Maths – long multiplication and division solve problems involving multiplication and division, including using their knowledge of factors and multiples, squares and cubed numbers. Fractions, equivalent fractions, mixed numbers etc.

Spellings in Year 5 ….

Times Tables – we will practice times tables every day but on Fridays there will be additional multiplication and division challenges and your times tables quick recall will be tested.
Reading in Year 5...
My passion is reading, reading opens a wealth of imagination and ideas for writing. If there is one thing you can do for your child its read with them, to them, let them see you reading, give them a shopping a list and ask them to find the products. Read newspapers, magazines, books, things on the internet, anything, just read.
