Welcome to Year 5 - Ruby Class
My name is Mr Latham and I have the pleasure of teaching Ruby class. This is my 4th year teaching at Dunsville and I love it. We are very lucky to be joined by Mrs Brown in our class.
This page will keep you up to date with what we are doing in school.
Please find below important information. The long term plan will give you an insight about what your child will be covering over the year and the Autumn forecast will give you more information about what we are leaning about in the Autumn term. The home learning document has already been sent out for this half term but can be found at the bottom of the page should you need another copy.
National Coal Mining Museum
We braved the cold weather and headed to the museum for our first trip in year 5. We had a great day exploring the depths of the mines and were stunned by how narrow the tunnels were. Going down the mines was a truly epic adventure and such a great way to kick start our mining topic.
Talk for Writing
We are currently learning about diaries in year 5 and are using our topic of mining to help us do this. After reading and retelling the diary using our Talk for Writing actions, we spent time planning and inventing our own diaries. We focused on trying to capture the harsh conditions of working in a pit!
Autumn home learning
Parent Forecast. This contains lots of useful information about the upcoming term!
A Visit from Ice hockey players...
We really enjoyed our recent visit from two hockey players. They play for Hull Kingston Jets.
We got the opportunity to ask lots of questions about a new sport and even got to try out their fascinating equipment!
