Dosbarth 5

Autumn term 2018 Mid term planner

Welcome to Dosbarth 5!

 Welcome back, I hope everyone had a wonderful summer holiday.

The children this term are studying the topic:




They have decided that they want to split the topic into two halves. The first half of the term the class would like to learn about and experience activities linked to the Amazon Rainforest. 


The children have asked to create Batik pieces of art work, make clay animals from the Amazon, design a home for a tribe who live in the rainforest and hold a charity event. Watch this space for further details about the event. 


The children are also reading the David Walliams novel 'The Awful Auntie'. They will be writing stories from different cultures, a non-chronological report and creating emotive poetry.


PE is on a Monday.


Reading books and Homework will be given to the children on a Thursday and must be returned to school on the following Monday.


Once the reading books have been checked in class, the children are free to take them home should you wish to listen to them read through the week.


Spelling lists will be given to children on a Thursday and the class are tested on the following Friday.
