Welcome to Year 5
We will be learning some interesting and exciting topics this year (please see the curriculum outline for further information on each half term topic).
Each half term children will have a home learning project. Children can share work by emailing in photos, posters or PowerPoint presentations.
Our topic this half term (Spring 1) is Water. Children can design a 3D model of a water cycle at home, this will be due before the half term holidays.
If you and your child do venture out (safely and within the guidelines), you could visit streams, ponds or lakes and draw the different landscapes.
In RE we will focus on 'What do Sikhs believe?'.
Reading at Home:
Our class reading book for Spring 1 is 'Floodland' by Marcus Sedgwick.
Children are expected to read everyday. Use the suggested book to read at home together and ask questions and find answers about the text.
This is an excellent resource to support your child's reading and develop comprehension skills. Please use everyday and make sure children are logging on and using Reading Buddies with Google Chrome and not Internet Explorer!
Daily Mathletics is a fantastic way to boost learning in maths. Activities are linked to the maths curriculum and when children play regularly it is really noticeable in lessons. Please encourage your child to use Mathletics and practice their times tables each day.
If you have any questions or would like advice on how best to support your child with their learning at home please don't hesitate to contact the office to make an appointment. Thank you,
