A warm welcome to Year 5, your children are in for a real treat this year!
I hope you have all had a great summer. I was so pleased to welcome the children back to school and see them looking so smart in their uniforms. This half term we have an abundance of exciting learning opportunities to look forward to. In English, we will be studying The Journey by Francesca Sanna. This encourages some detailed discussions and usually results in fabulous writing from the children. They will continue to develop their maths skills following Power Maths. In science, they will examine the different properties of materials and conduct some scientific investigations. We had great fun last week learning about Salvador Dali, our class artist, they even followed his style of Surrealism to produce some of their own paintings. They will also be examining Architecture in our weekly art lessons. Later on in the term, the children will hopefully be able to share with you their Harvest celebrations.
PE will take place every Friday. The children will need to have a full kit in school and will now 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 a fantastic year ahead with your wonderful children. If you have any queries then please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Thank you for your continued support,
