Year 5 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 5SB - Mrs Salter and Mrs Bowle's class.
We have another busy and exciting term ahead which will culminate in our residential, three days at the end of March spent in Menai. We will taking part in exciting outside activities designed to push us slightly out of our comfort zones which work on developing our team-building skills
We will be basing our English work initially on the book 'Shadow' by Michael Morpurgo. This book tells the story of a fictional refugee, Aman, from Afghanistan who comes to Britain seeking asylum.
We will be writing persuasive letters, writing character and setting descriptions and completing reading comprehension work all based on the book.
We will also be continuing to develop our Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar skills (SPAG). We will have lessons on SPAG weekly.
Your child will be bringing home their list of Year 5 spelling words to be learnt by the end of the year soon. (Also attached here in files) Please take time to help your child learn these words.
