Welcome back to Year 5!
We are so pleased to welcome the children back to school and are looking forward to some exciting learning in the next few weeks.
In English, we will be reading "Coming to England" by Floella Benjamin and doing some writing relating to that text. The children will have the opportunity to practise their sentence structure and punctuation by writing about their own homes and about changing and adapting to new experiences. They will also be writing a persuasive letter to Mrs Gage!
In maths, we will be focusing on multiplication and division and applying those skills to solve real-life word problems. A secure knowledge of times tables is essential for this so please support your child by practising at home whenever you can.
In history we will be studying Ancient Greeks and our art this term will also be based on that time period.
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.
