This term, Year 5 will be studying the Science based topic, ‘Is anybody out there?’
We will be learning all about the Earth and other planets. During the topic, we will be making our own orreries, training to be astronauts and designing space helmets. In literacy, we will look at the ingredients of a good story and try to create our own. We hope you will enjoy reading them! We will be looking at Tim Peake’s life and achievements and writing his biography as well as our own autobiographies.
In numeracy, we will build on our arithmetic skills learnt in year 4. Please continue practising your times tables on TT Rockstars.
We will also be working on achieving our reading bands. The reading grids are in the back of your child’s reading diary. Everybody is expected to achieve their bronze reading band by Christmas.
Swimming will start on Tuesdays.
