Chestnut 2022 - 2023
Hello Chestnut Class and welcome back after our half term break!
Myself and Mrs Reeves have had such a fabulous time working with you so far in Year 5, and are really looking forward to the learning and creativity that we are going to share in the coming months!
In Literacy we will be studying 'The Lost Happy Endings' by Carol Ann Duffy and using this text to write some descriptive and perhaps a little scary fairy tales. We will be exploring the purpose of our writing and the audience it will be aimed at.
In Maths, I have competiton this year as Mrs Reeves absolutely loves the subject also. Now we've covered place value (the value of digits and simple manipulations of them), and the properties of numbers we are looking to further develop our written methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
We have a new scheme in place this year for our History and Geography, and have really got involved in our Geography topic looking at our local environment. We've especially enjoyed linking with people within our community: a talk by a local archivist, a visit from the General Manager from Delamere Forest Holidays and a tour of their cabins and a visit from a local construction company. This next half term, we are going to be studying history and whether the Anglo-Saxon period was really known as 'The Dark Ages'.
PE will be on Tuesdays and Fridays but please make sure you have your kit, along with your outdoor learning gear, every day.
We also have our big trip later in the year to look forward to. Using the Conway centre as our base again, which was so good last year, we will be upping the challenges this year with you as we go on river scrambles, high ropes courses and some paddle boarding or individual kayaking.
We are so looking forward to this busy Christmas term with all the additional exciting events that we will also be involved in.
Mr Latham and Mrs Reeves
