A warm welcome to Year 5, your children are in for a real treat this year!
I hope you have all had a great half-term. I was so pleased with how hard the children worked over the last few weeks.. This half term we have an abundance of exciting learning opportunities to look forward to. In English, we will be studying The Highway Man by Alfred Noyes. This is a fantastic classic narrative poem and encourages some detailed discussions and usually results in fabulous writing from the children. They will continue to develop their maths skills following Power Maths, with a focus on multiplication and division. In science, they will examine different forces and conduct some scientific investigations. We will have great fun learning about Salvador Dali, our class artist and we will even follow his style of surrealism to produce some of our own paintings. They will also be designing and creating their own market stalls in our weekly DT lessons. Later on in the term, the children will be able to share with you some wonderful Christmas Carols .
PE will continue to take place every Friday. The children will need to have a full kit in school and will get changed into this on the day. Homework will be set each Friday and needs to be returned by the following Friday. Spellings will be given out on Mondays and the children will be tested Friday mornings. Your child will also bring home a school reading book with a reading record, this should come into school with them every day. Please encourage your child to read at home, even if it is just a few pages each night and sign and date their record. Our class author is Frank Cottrell-Boyce. We will be reading lots of his books for pleasure throughout the year.
I am really looking forward to another fantastic half-term with your wonderful children. If you have any queries then please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Thank you for your continued support,
