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 sharing the texts Holes by Louis Sachar and Kick by Mitch Johnson. 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 Rockstars website and learning weekly spellings.
PE will continue to take place on Wednesdays and Fridays. We suggest that you have your PE kit in school all week.
We hope that you are looking forward to this term.
