Welcome to 5JM!
Welcome back to school after the summer holiday. I hope you all had lots of fun and mad many magical memories.!
My name is Mrs Masterson and I will be teaching 5JM from Monday to Thursday each week. On A Friday Mrs Keighley will be teaching. I am sure we are going to have an exciting and fun filled year and learn lots!! I have been so impressed by the brilliant start this class has made so far, with the excellent presentation of their work and a fantastic attitude to their learning! Keep it up 5JM!
This term we will be learning all about The Ancient Egyptians – a fantastic topic to start our Year 5 journey!
We have already started reading ‘Secrets Of A Sun King’ which is a brand new book written by Emma Carroll and will be completing many cross-curricular activities based around this exciting story. We will also be taking part in a day long Egyptian workshop on 30th October run by Mr Egypt!!! I am really looking forward to the Egyptian breakfast we will be having along with the many other activities he has planned for us.
In Science we will be learning about and investigating Electricity. We will be having a fun filled Science day where we will be able to complete many different activities and enjoy investigating circuits.
In Maths we will be focussing on the four rules of number and completing lots of reasoning activities. Please do not worry if you find Maths difficult! In 5JM we help each other, we persevere and we rise to the challenge! We learn that Maths can be fun, interesting and exciting!!!
