Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Happy half-term holiday!

Please remember to complete your book review this week; the best examples will be displayed in the library and may even be uploaded onto this page! You also have the mapping activity: label all the major cities, then choose one to write a paragraph about. Mr Vallance will decide who wins the atlas when you return to school.

Don't forget to keep practising the spelling lists from last half-term and your times tables!

 

Autumn Term Topics

Continuing on from our island-themed topic before the holidays, our geography and history study this half term will be centred on volcanoes. What's beneath our feet? How are volcanoes formed? What do they look like inside? Where can they be found? All will be revealed!

 

 

 

 

 

In science we will study the Solar System, learning about how the planets

move relative to eachother as well as considering the history of developments

in this topic.

 

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.
