Welcome to Year 5's page.
Welcome to the start of a brand new term and school year! We are very excited about the wonderful things happening this term such as a trip to Birmingham and Potteries Museums! 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 Autumn Term.
Year 5 Staff.
Our Autumn term topic is Ancient Greece.
The children will be studying the climate, geography and landscape of Ancient Greece. The children will be studying the culture, belief systems and art of the Greeks. The children will go on several trips to deepen their understanding of the Greeks and the influence they have had on our world today. They will learn a great deal about the geography and history of Ancient Greece.
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!!!
