Year 5

Welcome back to Year 5!


We hope the children have a well-earned break and are looking forward to their last term in Year 5. 


In English, we will be studying the beautiful poetry book "The Lost Spells" by Robert Macfarlane and will be taking our learning outside so that the children can be inspired by nature. Reading continues to be a key focus for all children and your support at home with this will be greatly appreciated.


In maths, we will be focusing on shape, statistics as well as problem solving involving the four operations: adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. A secure knowledge of times tables is essential for this so please support your child by practising at home whenever you can.


Our topic this term is It's A Revolution as our learning will revolve around the Victorian era.


In geography we will be studying Athens as a follow-up to our Ancient Greek topic from History and our DT this term will involve programming. 


Finally, in science, we are exploring living things and their habitats and animals including humans.


Please remember, we have an open-door policy so if you have any concerns, please speak to us, email us via the admin email account or contact the office to arrange a convenient time to speak on the phone.
