Welcome to 5J!
Welcome to Class 5J's website pages where we will endeavour to post all the exciting activities and learning adventures we experience over the next year!
I'm Mrs Jones, and our TAs are Mrs Tuer and Mrs Crozier.
At Torrisholme, we are continuously striving to develop ways to encourage our children to read for pleasure. We have created a ‘HOT BOOKS’ list of 30 up-to-date, age-appropriate texts, compiled from a range of suggested reading lists. This is not an exhaustive list of fabulous year group appropriate books but is more a fun challenge list for our children to explore texts written in a wide range of styles by a selection of current and popular children’s authors.
How many can your child read?
On your marks…
Ukulele - Smoke on the Water
Our first performance after three lessons- in four parts!
This half term, our topic is Australia. We have been designing leaflets to encourage people to visit this magnificent country. We have been researching the best places to visit in the country. The children have been participating in small adverts, trying to persuade the teachers to fly to Australia, using language to entice the listener.
In our new, large classroom, we are able to keep indoor plants! We enjoyed growing flowers last year and they are a welcome addition to our room. Each table has one or two plants to cultivate. We've named them and they are doing really well, despite over-enthusiastic watering in the first week!
