Welcome to Rossetti Class (Year 5)
Chatham Docks visit - October 2018
Welcome to Rossetti class
One of our main responsibilities in Year 5 is to run the ‘Tasty Tuck’ shop which the school council established. We sell Tasty Tuck every Tuesday break time for 50p. We are in charge of the money and keeping track of the stock. This gives us the opportunity to practise our numeracy skills as well as gaining experience of what it might be like to run a business. The rest of the school enjoy it too!!
As year 5 pupils, we also have the opportunity to spend time with our Class 1 buddies. We share stories with them, play games where we have to read the instructions and do art and craft activities encouraging them to develop their reading and speaking and listening skills. This also gives us the chance to improve our reading across a variety of texts and to share books with different audiences.
In Year 5 we are often called upon for extra roles and responsibilities in school, being in upper KS2, especially when Year 6 isn’t around!
Learning at home
In class 5, you can support your child’s learning by:
- Practising daily reading and comprehension skills; this could be discussing the text, looking at the layout and features relating to that particular genre or just sharing a good book.
- Keeping on top of the times tables, once the facts are mastered, can they be recalled in any order and at speed?
Homework can be accessed above.
Thank you for your continued support.
