Year 5

Welcome to Year 5. I hope you have all have a lovely summer and are ready for the year ahead!


In Guided Reading this half term will be reading the book The Portal by Andrew Norriss. In English the children will be writing non-chronological reports and learning about poetry. Our topic this half term is called Earthlings and we will be exploring Space. If the children have any of their own books or articles about Space then please send them in.


This half-term our RE topic is 'Creation'. We will be looking at how the world was created, how we are all part of God's world and how we can look after each other. Y5's class collective act of worship will be this term and you are very welcome to attend, further information and dates will be given out in due course.


Please note that PE will be on a Wednesday and a Friday. Swimming will not be until the last half term of the year. 


Children will be given spellings every 2 weeks. The spellings will be given out on a Monday and tested on a Friday at the end of the 2 week period. It is important that the children have their spelling journals in school every day.however as with last year the test will not be until the following Tuesday as we spend two weeks on each new spelling rule to give more time for the children to embed their new knowledge and apply spellings in their writing. Can I please ask if parents could check that their children are bringing their green spelling journals into school everyday. I will upload the spellings onto the website incase any have been lost and I will update this fortnightly.
