Year 5

Welcome back Year 5!


We hope you had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to the term ahead.


We have got another busy term ahead. Our topic this term is Artists of the World which has a focus on Art and Geography. We will be learning about different sculptors and their work from all over the world. We are going to making our own sculptures from different materials and techniques which we will learn about.


In Guided Reading we will be continuing to share the text Cogheart by Peter Bunzl, and then we will be reading Holes by Louis Sachar. Why not see if you can borrow a copy from the local library to read along with? In English lessons we will be covering a range of genres including persuasive and explanation texts.


In Maths we will be continuing to learn about multiplication and division as well as fractions. We will be continuing to have an arithmetic test each week to see how you are improving.


Your homework continues to be the same as last term; reading at least three times a week, practising your times tables via the Times Tables Rock Stars website and learning weekly spellings.


PE will take place on the following days:


Emerald (Mrs Hastings): Thursday and Friday

Teal (Mr Goater): Tuesday and Thursday

Emerald (Miss Gaitely): Thursday and Friday


We hope that you are looking forward to this term.


Mrs Hastings, Mr Goater and Miss Gaitely
