Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

The half-term holiday is almost upon us - it's a good chance to catch our breath before we hit the ground running in Spring 2! Well done for all the effort you have put this year so far; let's continue working hard on our spellings, times tables and reading next term.

 

Spring Term Topics

In history, we are investigating a range of sources to consider the differences between the lives of the rich and poor in Tudor times. We will look at the architecture of different homes and research the purpose of the inventory in that period.

In science, we will study materials, building on the work the children completed in Year 4 on solids, liquids and gases. We are already super excited to carry out the Coke and Mentos experiment, to investigate reversible and irreversible reactions.

 

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.
