Year 5

Welcome back to the final term of the year - The Summer Term. 

Lots of fun things planned this term:

  • Science - looking at habitats, life cycles and the changes that occur to the human body.
  • Humanities - Greece and Ancient Greece. What would you like to know? What do you already know?
  • English - Yet another fantastic book to read ' Percy and The Lightning Thief.'

Plus many other interesting lessons and activities to keep your brains working hard.

Remember to keep reading your books at home. Who is left to achieve their reading certificate? 

Swimming will continue every Friday, so remember to bring in your swimming kits. 

Seeing as the weather is heating up remember to bring in a water bottle to keep you hydrated.

Welcome back to the Spring Term. Hope you have had a well, deserved break and are now ready to get your learning caps on.

This term we will be super scientists. Learning all about The Solar System, The Moon, The Earth, and the relationship that they have with each other in regards to the The Sun.

Do you know anything about the following Scientists and the impact that they have had?

  • Aristotle (384BC - 322BC)
  • Alhazan ( 1038 AD)
  • Nicolaus Copernicus (1473AD - 1543AD)
  • Johannes Kepler (1571AD - 1630 AD)
  • Galileo (1564AD - 1642AD)

Throughout our Geography topic, we will find out how the Earth is structured, the journey of a river and of course learning those vital map skills.

We will be reading a fantastic book, ‘Holes’ by Louis Sacher. I am sure you are all going to be hooked.

It is important that you keep practising the Year 5/6 spellings at home, as well as the weekly spellings.

Reading at home is also extremely important. Let us see if we can get all of Year 5 a reading certificate by the end of the Summer Term.

 

Things to Remember:

Monday = Spelling Test

Tuesday = Homework due in

Friday = Swimming Kits

Hello and welcome to the first term of Year 5!

This term we will be learning all about the Vikings, from farming to food. We will be producing our very own Viking menu to prepare, cook and adapt to suit our own taste buds. 

An amazing trip is booked to Liverpool University, which I am particulary looking forward to.

Within our English lessons we will read 'Beowulf' using this a basis to produce some fantastic pieces of writing. 

It is really important that you practise the Year 5/6 spellings at home, aswell as the weekly spellings. 

Reading at home is also extremely important. Let's see if we can get all of Year 5 a reading certificate by the end of the Summer Term.

Don't forget about practising your times tables.

Some of you will also continue to play the guitar. you never know maybe you will be the next Ed Sheeran.  

There will be lots of other exciting things happening this term so make sure you are in school. You don't want to miss anything.

 

Thanks 

Miss McKuhen
