Welcome to Year 5's page.
Welcome to the Spring term! We are very excited about the wonderful things happening this term such as a trip to Alton Castle! The children will be working very hard and we know that their families will support them in reading and homework tasks. We can't wait to get started. From all Year 5 staff we hope you have a lovely Spring term.
Year 5 Staff.
Our Spring term topic is Save Our Planet
The children will be studying matters surrounding Climate change and how to help our planet. They will study about recycling, pollution and deforestation. They will learn key geography skills such as map reading, ocean knowledge and human geography. They will be making presentations about environmental issues and will come up with ways they can improve the world.
Children need to read at least 20 minutes every night. Children can read independently, to an adult, or to a sibling. Please ensure reading diaries are signed daily.
Maths and English homework will be given out on Thursdays; maths will be given out every 2 weeks. Children also need to be practising times tables daily at home.
Children will be given spellings every Monday for a spelling test on Friday. We work on our spellings every day in school but practice at home makes perfect!!!
