Year 5

A New Half Term Begins! 

A warm welcome back to all of Year 5 after your short break. We are now looking ahead to the next seven weeks of term and the challenges and opportunities that are just begging to be tackled! Our class topic of 'Food Glorious Food' is being complimented throughout the curriculum, with traditional Victorian dancing being investigated in PE, writing stories that use a historical setting and of course in our role play area, which has been transformed into Scrooge's office from

'A Christmas Carol'. 


I am looking forward to exploring new and interesting experiments in our science work, building on our knowledge of reversible and irreversible changes, as well as challenging ourselves to learn more about the different Biomes that exist in different areas of the globe. I am excited to announce that we will have the opportunity to recreate our own versions of some of these diverse habitats.


Interested in knowing more? Please click on the 'Autumn 2' curriculum plan below to see what we have planned for all curriculum areas being covered this half term. 



As always, PE kit, including outdoor kit, will need to be in school at all times during the week unless specified. 

Can I also ask that swimming kit is clearly labelled and in school on a Tuesday for our session on Tuesday afternoon.

Spellings will be sent home on a Wednesday for testing the following Wednesday. Home readers and diaries should be in school every day for checking. Children should be writing at least three comments a week about the book they are reading, could I please ask for parents to also check and sign the diary to confirm children are reading at home. Many thanks for your support in this.   


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to me or another member of the class team.
