Welcome to Eagle Class!
I am very excited about teaching the first Year 5 class at Aylesford. We will have so many wonderful learning opportunities throughout the year.
Mrs Perrier will be with Eagle Class on a Monday, and our learning will also be supported by Ms Burnett and Miss Hill.
During the Autumn term, our topic is Ancient Egyptians. It's going to be fascinating learning about the people of Ancient Egypt, Pharaohs, pyramids and the River Nile. We will compare daily life with our own. We will explore our theme across the curriculum, through Literacy, History, Art, DT and Science. Our class text is 'Secrets of a Sun King' by Emma Carroll, which complements our topic.
Our learning in maths will begin with Place Value and Number, and we will progress onto mastering formal written methods for addition and subtraction. There will be plenty of challenging problem solving and investigations throughout the term too!
Remember to wear your PE kit to school every Thursday - jogging bottoms and a warm top will be essential as the weather becomes cooler.
Library books and reading books will be changed on a Friday. Please ensure your reading record is in school so that it can be checked.
Homework will be set every Wednesday on Purple Mash. This will include your weekly spellings.
I am looking forward to the coming year!
