Year 5: Mr Almeida - JK Rowling

Don't forget your ambience...



Hello one and all and welcome to year 5! 


My name is Mr Almeida and here you will find all sorts of information about our class and the various things we will be getting up to throughout the year.


In our class we are extremely lucky to have the support of two wonderful TA's Miss Haywood and Miss Gunnell. As well as every other week we will have the fabulous Miss Vaughn who will be teaching the class on Fridays. 


If there is ever any issues please do not hesitate to message me on class dojo.


Welcome to Summer Term 1! Where is this school year going?! We are now looking at our Local community and what makes Long Eaton great! Hopefully the children will be able to say more than just McDonalds and KFC (They had already mentioned this!)


In Literacy we will be looking at some back to school skills (comprehension, editing and spelling). From this we will move onto writing brochures about our local community focusing on persuasive writing! The children's extended writing is coming on fantastically, lets keep it up!


In Maths we will be looking at decimals and percentages and then move onto the properties of different shapes and position and direction. 




PE will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays. We will have Outdoor sessions on Wednesday and swimming on Fridays. 

Homework will be set on a weekly basis. It usually alternates between a mathematics activity, mymaths for example, and an English activity, for example. Sometimes we may set a paper based activity, which we will give plenty of notice for. If you need a computer based activity printing out, please let me know via dojo and I can do that for you.


We expect ALL children, EVERY week to learn their spellings in preparation for their weekly test. Times tables MUST be learnt and time spent on TT rock stars is a must. 


Finally, we encourage children to read as much as possible at home, both to themselves and to their parents. Reading at home is vital to compliment and reinforce what we are doing in school.
