Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely summer holiday and have come back ready to start the Autumn term. We have been really impressed with how well and how quickly all the children have settled into Year 5. We have seen a first class positive attitude towards learning and we are sure this will continue for the rest of the year.
In English, we are currently looking at the story of 'The canal' which is a warning tale. The children will be focusing on their ability to create suspense and creating a setting.
In maths, our focus for the first part of the half term is on place value and understanding number. We will then be moving on to explore fractions and how they are used in real life.
Our topic for the first half term is science and we will be investigating properties of materials and changes of state. For the second half of term we will be moving on to the exciting times of the Romans!
5W's PE days are Thursday and Friday.
5K's PE days are Monday and Thursday.
5S's PE days are Tuesday and Thursday.
Please make sure you have your PE kits in school on your class' PE days and that your Home School Contact Book is in school every day.
Please feel free to come and speak to any of the Year 5 team or put a note in the Home School Contact Book.
