Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Happy New Year! We've got a busy and exciting Spring Term ahead!

 

Spring Term Topics

 

This term, our history and geography topic is "Achievements and Legacies". We will begin by looking at our own achievements, then considering some of the things we view to be achievements in modern life (such as advances in medicine, the internet and other new technology). Then we'll take a look at Tudor and Stuart explorers.

 

In science we will follow-on from our study of the Solar System by learning about forces, including gravity.

 

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.

 

We will be continuing with our fantastic Rainbow Reading scheme - children will receive a certificate in assembly each time they complete a bookmark.

Our class novel this term is "The Firework Maker's Daughter" by Philip Pullman
