Welcome to the Year 5 class page. Here, you will be able to see what we've been learning in school and share our adventures.
During this second spring half term, we will continue to explore rivers and mountains in our topic time. Our 4th science topic is Changes of Materials. Children will revise properties of the states of matter and learn about reversible and irreversible changes. They will plan and conduct fair tests in order to answer scientific questions.
We are still reading Fablehaven by Brandon Mull, and the children all listen avidly as the story unfolds.
Homework and new reading books are given out each Friday afternoon.
Homework needs to be returned on Tuesdays.
Spellings are given out each Monday and are tested on the following Monday.
Books need to be returned in folder (with signed homework diary) when completed.
In Year 5, children should be reading every day. A child reading the higher stage Oxford Reading Tree books could read a chapter each day and would then be changing their book fortnightly.
We recommend that children bring their P.E. kit in on a Monday and keep it in school until Friday.
