Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuh.
I am Ustaadhah AbdulMunim, the Year 5 teacher. I have been teaching at Assunnah since 2011 and I have loved and have been grateful for every single day of it. Assunnah Primary School is a unique place to be!
I have worked with children of all ages for many years and my philosophy for learning is that each child is unique, and each child learns in a different way. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help your child discover his or her individuality and work alongside with them to maximise it. I believe in hands-on experiences and learning creatively. It is my goal to create a community of learners who are committed to working hard and at the same time have fun doing it. I want students to leave my classroom feeling confident that they can apply what they’ve learned in school to real-life situations.
|Topics||Our theme for this term is on Dinosaurs. We will be learning about the dinosaurs species of the Mesozoic Era with very practical and engaging activities.|
This year,the whole of Key Stage Two, will be following the Ruth Miskin Literacy and Language Programme, I am very excited to get started as it’s a very comprehensive programme, and also very popular. In the Autumn half term we will be studying the following topics:
-Fiction – children will learn about the concept of dilemma, and engage with the dilemma. They will make links between their own experience and stories they have read. They will explore how a character’s choices change the way they behave towards other characters.
-Poetry – Children will read a range of poems about the city and make connections with their own experiences and other poems they have read. Children will explore how poets use language for effect, consolidate their understanding of poetic terms. They will perform a poem using expression to show understanding.
SEAL and Citizenships.
This will offer children the opportunity to see themselves as valued individuals within their community and to contribute to shaping a welcoming, safe and fair learning community for all. Throughout the theme, children explore feelings of happiness and excitement, sadness, anxiety and fearfulness, and learn shared models for ‘calming down’ and ‘problem solving’.
|Trips||As part of our Topic on World War Two, I am very excited on planning to , ins has-Allah, take year 5 to the Imperial War Museum. The children will explore the causes, course and consequences of war at Imperial War Museum.
Skills That They Will Gain:
The Activities That They Will Do:
|P.E.||We, at Assunnah, are committed to provide physical education programs in line with national Curriculum, which ensures that each child stays active, as our bodies are an Amanah that we should be looking after! In-sha-Allah, my aim is to establish and instill in the children the importance of staying active and healthy. You can help you child stay committed by making sure they eat healthily and enrol in sports clubs and programs outside school.
This autumn term, year 5 P.E lessons will be divided into the following two sessions inshaa-Allah:
The week that your child will not be attending swimming lesson he/she will attend a P.E. lesson at Tottenham Sports Centre. This term we will be covering the topic of ‘Athletics’. The children will be taught to perform actions and skills with more consistent control and quality. They will take part in and design challenges and competitions that call for precision, speed, power and stamina.
|Homework||Homework is a link between school and home and helps consolidate with the children have been learning in class. It is important that children take responsibility for their homework and hand it in on time.
Homework will be given on Monday and should be returned on Friday. If, for any reason the homework is not handed it on time, a text message will be sent out to parents.
