Amethyst class


Welcome to Amethyst class! There are 30 of us. Our class teacher is Miss Rosier and our wonderful TA is Homa.

Our current topic question is, ‘Can I persuade you?’ This topic has a D&T focus, closely linked to our literacy. The children are looking at persuasion in the context of advertisements, letter writing and market research. They will also design their own product and create packaging for it using Computer Aided Design software. At the end of the term, children will plan and run their own fundraising event.

By the end of the topic, children will have an understanding of how brands set their product apart from others and how they use marketing to pitch that to the target audience. Children will be modelling these skills in their own work.

We do outdoor PE on a Monday, and indoor PE on a Wednesday. The expectation is that everybody has their PE kit at school every day just in case we have a timetable change.

Homework in Year 5 will be given as a selection of tasks at the start of the half term, one of which needs to have been completed in time for every Wednesday and brought in to school. Books will be brought home again on Friday. We encourage everyone to become as independent as possible when it comes to completing and returning homework.
