Well done for all your wonderful work on animation. I very much enjoyed hearing about your narratives and characters and even seeing a few stop motion animations too. I hope you enjoyed it and that will be enthusiastic about the next area of learning.

 

The children's learning will be based around Superheroes for the next two weeks. You will find a PDF explaining what you will need to do each day for English and Art for the next two weeks. 

 

Please can you also keep your times table knowledge up together by practising daily on times table rockstars:  https://ttrockstars.com/  You will find your log in details in your reading records.

 

There is also still time to complete the Wincanton Book Challenge 2020 to try to earn a bronze, silver or gold certificate! I have been impressed with the entries so far. Please email them to: asteroid.sch418@educ.somerset.gov.uk.

 

Stay safe and take care.

Welcome to Asteroid Class!

 

The adults that work in Asteroid Class are Miss Clark and Miss Chapman.

 

 

Welcome to year 5.  This term our PE day will be every Thursday morning and also alternating Tuesday/Wednesdays.  On these days, please ensure that:

  • Children have all of the correct kit in school.
  • Long hair is tied back.
  • (If possible) bring both trainers and daps so they have the appropriate footwear for both indoor and outdoor PE.
  • Earrings are removed or taped over.

 

Maths homework will be given out on Fridays and due in the following Thursday. The spellings will also be given on the Friday and be tested on the following Friday. Your child should be able to complete this work independently as it will be based on work they have already done in class. Please do not hesitate to speak to us if you have any concerns.

 

Times table recall remains a focus this year and children will be tested weekly through ‘Times Table Olympics’ to ensure that their recall is quick and accurate. Times Table Rockstars is a great resource to support this and it can be accessed on laptops and tablets at home, as well as at school.

 

We are also encouraging all children to read at home; this needs to be recorded in the children's reading records. It is very important for the children to read regularly and understand their reading so that they can take the Accelerated Reader quizzes within school. When your child gets 85% or above in these quizzes, they are rewarded with a star which is put onto a class chart. We are aiming for 100 stars so that we can have a class treat!

 

Photos, news and pieces of work will also be added regularly to this page so make sure to watch this space.

Thanks for visiting.

  • Help them to learn their weekly spellings and ensure they understand their meaning.
  • Encourage children to complete their maths homework with as much independence as possible.
