Teaching assistant: Mrs Cowele

Welcome to 5A. We are a amazing group of respectful and hardworking children. Our lessons are full of challenges that we overcome with a posivitve attitude and a strong resilience. Our class Teacher is Miss Archer and our Teaching assistant is Mrs Cowele. They are always there to offer support and help with our learning. We are constantly striving to be the best that we can and we are dedicated to achieving our MAPLE values.

What We Are Learning

We are currently reading ‘The Invention of Hugo Cabret’ by Brian Selznick, a magical adventure set in a Paris train station in the 1930’s. The children are enjoying the text already and will be creating some magnificent work based on Hugo’s adventures as he tries to fix the mechanical man.

We have some brilliant topics that we are so enthusiastic about. Starting the year exploring the farming industry in the UK and across the globe in ‘Sow, Grow and Farm’ We will then  learn about the key historical era of Ancient Egyptians in ‘The Nile’ before exploring Word War 2 in our ‘A Child’s War’ Topic.

Alongside this we will be developing our drawing and painting skills in Art and our sporting skills in PE. We will also be completing exciting scientific enquires and investigations on a range of topics from Materials to Space.

Homework will be sent home each Monday, to be returned on a Friday and the spellings will be tested the following Monday. We also have the fantastic Bug Club reading programme, which children are encouraged to read on at least once a week at home alongside their reading book; children are required to read at least three times a week, with a challenge set for five times.

Our PE day is Tuesday. Please ensure children wear their PE kit to school on that day.
