Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Christmas is almost here! Here's sneak peak of what's in store in January:

 

Spring Term Topics

Vikings! Focusing on elements of history and geography, we will take a look at this amazing time period. We will also learn about the Northern Saints.

 

 

 

 

In science, our topic is "Forces". We'll be testing parachutes, watching dancing raisins and checking out how pulleys work. 

 

Reading

We expect all our children to read every evening and at weekends. In Year 5, 20 minutes should be a minimum but, if your child can't put their book down because they are so engrossed, that's the magic of reading.  Please ensure you sign the reading log to confirm this reading is taking place.
