Panthers Y5

Welcome to Panthers Class!
"Let's go Panthers, let's go!"


We are the Positive Panthers and we are a year 5 class.  Our teacher is Mr Matthews and the teaching assistant who will work with us in some of our learning will be Mrs Metcalfe.

We are looking forward to an exciting Summer Term 2018! 


Our Topic Question for the Summer Term is...

A World Inside A World - Do We Need To Save The Rainforest?



In English, we will read and use the text 'Cogheart' for our class text and the non-fiction text '30 Million insects in the Rainforest' for our focus text.





We are looking forward to narrative, biography, report and persuasive writing  based on the texts we are reading and other inspirational topic work.


We will also be continuing to develop our 'Rainbow Grammar' knowledge and practise our handwriting.



In Maths, we will have skills lessons every week, using and applying our skills lessons and an arithmetic lesson!



Our Science topics will be 'Circle of Life' and 'Changing World'


- two closely linked topics to extend our knowledge about plants and animals and their place in our world.



Through our topic work we will be aiming to answer our topic question...


A World Inside A World - Do We Need To Save The Rainforest?



Our learning will focus around the Rainforest environments in South America where we will learn about the different climate zones, vegetation belts and biomes. We will study the economy of the and the natural resources produced in the rainforest. Finally we will learn about deforestation and the effects it has on the environment.





Art and D.T


In art, we are focusing on the work of the famous artist,

Henri Rousseau. We will be sketching and using different media such as felt tip, chalk and pastel.



Our D.T. will have a textile focus. We will be learning to cross stitch; creating a rainforest bookmark as a gift!




Our Computing work will, as always, involves work around E-Safety and knowing how to stay safe online. We will also develop our emailing skills and continue our class 'blog'. Our skills in using and creating spreadsheets will be developed this term!


We will be using ICT in lots of other lessons to help our research and presentation of work.


Music and R.E

Alongside all of this topic work we will be continuing with our French and Music.

Remember to read every night and get your diary signed - you will earn a star stamp each time!

We read everyday in school so you will need your reading book and reading diary with you every day.

Also, have a go at reading a book using your BUG CLUB account on the activelearn website.




Every Friday Panthers will have homework to complete. They are expected to complete their homework for the following Friday. Please do your best to support and encourage your child with their schoolwork.


Please make sure you have your reading diary with you for the spelling test on Friday.



If you would like to have a chat or pass on any information please feel free to come into class, I will be more than happy to see you. For a lengthier chat please arrange an after school appointment.
