Welcome to Year 5!
We hope that you and the children have a wonderful summer and we are looking forward to seeing you all in September.
In English, we will be studying a beautifully illustrated book called "Small in the City". This will be studied by all year groups (1 to 6) and will give the children an opportunity to recap on the basics of sentence structure and punctuation before continuing with their English units. 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 on place value, rounding and 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.
In geography we will be studying volcanoes and earthquakes.
Finally, in science, we are studying forces.
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.
To mark Green Week, in art, we linked our learning about typography and the children looked carefully at plants to create and sketch letters.
As part of our unit on how Hindus show commitment to their faith, we created a shrine in our classroom and Mrs Bharadia gave us all a fascinating talk about the ceremonial worship of puja.
