Welcome all Parents, Families and Students to the Year 5 2020 Blog. Our class this year is called the Mātātā Class.
We have had a wonderful start to the year. The class have settled back into school life incredibly well. This term we welcome Sabine and Jude into the class. They have settled in nicely and had a very warm welcome from the rest of the class.
In Maths, we have started the term by looking at rather large numbers. We have been playing place value games and comparing numbers.
In Science, the students are learning all about ‘The Life Cycle of a Flowering plant’. We have discussed what plants we know and how we think plants grow. We are excited to continue or learning in this area.
In English we are reading Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We have looked at the cover page and blurb and have started to read the text. The whole class are very excited and are already enjoying the beginning of this fabulous adventure story. We can’t wait to find out the journey it takes us on.
I look forward to meeting you at the ILP meetings next week, where your child will receive targets based on our beginning of year assessments.
