Form V Spring Term 2018
The children usually begin the new term with renewed vigour and enthusiasm. This page will give you some information about the work that Form V is involved in this term.
This term we will be studying units on Monsters and Myths, Daring Adventures and Tales in Verse. The work involves a lot of reading of texts and discussion in pairs, groups and as a class and then builds up to the children producing their own writing on the theme while covering the relevant grammar and punctuation. I hope this is going to be a real inspiration for the children.
A continued emphasis is placed on the importance of reading in the spring term. The children are again challenged to read a number of books (novels, poetry or fact books) before Easter. Each time they complete a book their reading record book has to be completed. There will be certificates for everyone who completes the challenge. Encouragement from home is invaluable!
This term the children will be learning about Time: analogue and digital time; the 24 hour clock and using timetables. They will then move onto shape, space perimeter and area and after half-term start work on decimals and fractions.
History and Geography
Rivers and Seas
Our assembly this term will be on Friday 9th February and we look forward to seeing you then.
Poetry and Singing Competition
This will take place on Monday 19th March and all the children will be taking part.
I hope this term will prove to be an enjoyable and worthwhile one for the children. I know the homework can seem a burden but this year is of great importance and I am sure you are all aware of that! If we all work together then I am certain that we will achieve success.
