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.
Our History topic this term centres upon The Anglo Saxons - Who were the Anglo Saxons? Where did they come from? Why did they come to England? What do we know about Anglo Saxon life?
Our first Science topic of the term is 'Earth and Space'. We will discover why we have day and night, reasons for the seasons and explore what we know about the Earth and other planets in our solar system.
Our P.E. sessions will take place on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Our first focus of the term is 'Fitness'.
We recommend that children bring their P.E. kit into school on a Monday, and leave in school until Friday.
Homework and new reading books are given out each Friday afternoon.
Homework needs to be returned on Tuesdays.
Spellings are given out each Tuesday and are tested on the following Tuesday.
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.
