Year 5!

Welcome back! 

This half term’s topic is Stargazers, and we will be exploring Earth and Space as well as making our own space rockets.

In English, we will be writing newspaper reports all about the discovery of a parallel universe. This will link to our class text, Northern Lights by Philip Pullman. We will then move onto writing a setting description of an unusual planet! 

In Maths, we will start by looking at the place value of digits up to 1,000,000. We will then learn to order and compare and round numbers using our knowledge of place value. 

As our topic is Stargazers, we will be learning all about the Solar System, including: the planets, the Earth, Sun and Moon, how night and day occur and the difference in time zones across the world. We will also look at famous individuals (Isaac Newton and Galileo) who have contributed to this field of Science. 

Spellings will continue to be given out every Friday and will be tested on a Friday morning.

Homework is project-based. Please check the curriculum overview for details for tasks and due dates.

Children need to have their PE kit in school every Tuesday (5S and 5F) and every Thursday (5K).   

Can we please remind everyone of the need for correct uniform to be worn - especially black shoes!  Please check the school's uniform policy or speak to a member of staff if you are unsure.

 Every child has been given a reading book and book bag.  Please can you ensure that this is brought to school every day.
