Mrs Dyde's Class 2017 - 2018

Mrs Dyde


Welcome to the Summer Term .


Class Read - We will be reading Wonder this term by R.J. Palacio. In English we will be studying excerpts from the book, and without giving anything away, the quote, "You can't blend in when you were born to stand out," is something we will be exploring. Please do read the book if you want to enjoy it yourselves, but please do not watch the film beforehand.



Maths - We will continue to focus on the objectives taken from within the Year 5 curriculum as outlined on our curriculum web. There will be daily arithmetic starter activities within the Maths lessons along with a continued focus on time tables.


Science - this term we will be exploring Living things and their habitats and animals around us, including humans.


The Mayan Civilisation : We are going to continue studying our Mayan Civilisation topic, exploring their religion and the Gods; their number system; their cities; their writing, food, religious and cultural differences.


PE - This term PE will involve a range of strking and fielding games as well as athletics. Please can you make sure that appropriate PE kit is in school every day of the week.To remind you this includes trainers, black tracksuit bottoms (with the school logo) or black shorts, yellow school t-shirt and a black jumper. In some cases a waterproof, or windproof coat may be beneficial.


PPA - our PPA activities are now mixed, and therefore it is important that the children have the appropriate clothing with them each week for whichever activity they are involved in - this includes clothing for Forest School, (a complete change of clothes, preferably old, incuding jumpers, wellies, extra socks and a waterproof coat) and their usual PE kit.


Homework - this will be sent home every week on a Friday and is expected to be returned by the following Thursday. It will consist of Spellings to learn (for a test the following Thursday); Maths (set online using Mymaths) and Grammar skills - to be completed in the book sent home. We have also begun to include a short comprehension for your child to answer. If your child completes their homework sooner than the date expected, please do return it to school as soon as it is done.


Water bottles - please ensure your child brings their water bottle to school every day and that it is clearly identifiable.

If you have any questions relating to any aspect of school life please do not hesitate in contacting me or coming to see me. Please feel free to come in at the beginning of the school day, (where possible before 8;45am to allow time for class preparation) or preferably at the end of the school day.
