Welcome to the Autumn Term, we hope you had a relaxing summer break and that you are ready for the start of the new term. We have many new and exciting things to learn this term and we hope that everyone is ready and raring to go!
In geography we will be studying mountains our history topic is the Maya civilisation . Our science topics will be (1) forces and (2) Earth and space.
Our PE days are a Tuesday and Friday, although please could you please make sure your child has their PE kit in school every day as timetables are subject to change and some impromptu sport will take place at lunchtimes. Please ensure that all PE kit items are clearly labelled with your child's name.
All children will be given a spelling sheet each Friday which we ask they use to practice their spellings. The spellings are also listed in the home/school communication diaries. The children will be tested on their spellings the following Friday. As Year 5 children, they are expected to take responsibility for learning their spellings (and later in the year doing set homework) independently and we encourage them to do this without having to be reminded at home.
Reading Renaissance continues in school daily but please ensure your child is reading each night at home. The children know the expectation of reading each night and bringing their reading renaissance book to and from school each day.
Mrs Wills will be supporting many of the children in their learning throughout the year. Finally, if you have any questions, please do ask and we will do our best to reply as soon as possible.
Mr Burke and Mr Stein
