We are looking forward to an INCREDIBLE year...
This term, all classes will be looking at 'Our Incredible Planet', with each year group looking at a different part of our wonderful world. In Year 5, our focus is 'Blue Planet' as we explore the seas and oceans that we share with diverse creatures and how we can help to preserve these vast environments.
Games lessons will be on a Wednesday afternoon and the children will require kit suitable for all weather conditions, as they will take place outside whenever possible. P.E. is swimming on Friday mornings (until Easter 2020).
Spelling tests will be weekly on a Friday and all homework will be set via Mathletics and Reading Eggspress.
It is important for children in Year 5 to read every night. Please remember to record any reading your child does in their reading diary. These will be checked every week so please make sure they are in school every day.
Class teachers are available on the playground every day if you have any questions.

Talk for Writing
We are using 'story maps' to help us learn, understand and write challenging text.
In the autumn term we have rehearsed our first non-fiction text map - 'How is aluminium recycled?' Ask the children to retell this text.
