Year 5 Autumn 2nd Half Term
Please use the below link to access DB Primary we will be using this platform to set weekly homework.
This half term we will be covering the topic The Victorians. We will be finding out about the Victorian classrooms and the daily routine at school. We will also compare our own home lives to those who worked in the workhouse. We are going to be exploring the Victorian maps and investigating how the landscape has changed. We will particularly be looking at the Victorian house and how they are furnished, which will be displayed in our own miniature dolls house.
The children need to complete a learning log task for this topic which will be around the idea of Victorian schools. Children need to investigate things like what children wore, the punishments, daily routine/timetable and who attended.
This should be completed and handed in at the latest by Monday 30th November.
Homework will be set each Friday and needs to be returned for the following Wednesday. Your child will be given a homework folder and all work should be placed in this. Homework is an essential part of the curriculum and your support is appreciated. Children who do not complete homework tasks will need to complete it in THEIR TIME in school. Spellings will also be sent home every Friday and children will tested every following Friday.
Reading books will be sent home every night. Children need to read at least 3 times a week and their reading record signed at least 3 times a week by an adult.
Initially, children will just need a change of footwear to take part in our P.E. sessions. This will be until further notice and you will be updated if/when this changes.
