Year 5 2020-21

Welcome back, Year 5! We hope you have had a fantastic Christmas break and are keen to return to school to learn about our exciting, new topic, 'Mission X.'  We will gain an overview of the Earth and its place within the Solar System, using key scientific vocabulary to explain day and night, how the moon orbits the Earth and the planets.  
In Literacy, we will consolidate and add to our reading and writing skills, using short films and a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts linked to the topic of Space. 

In Maths, we will continue to practise and improve our arithmetic, fluency and reasoning skills in the key areas of multiplication and division and fractions.

 

Our P.E days continue to be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please continue to come dressed in warm P.E kits on these days. 

 

Many Thanks,

The Year 5 Team

We've had a great day at our WW2 Day. The children enjoyed making blitzed buildings, dancing The Lambeth Walk and making their party teas!
