Hi all! smiley

We have a busy summer term ahead of us... lots to look forward to!

On our return to school, in Literacy we are looking at biographies and autobiographies, as well as The Dragon Slayer story. It links well to our History topic of the Shang Dynasty too where we will be travelling back to China in the 1500BC to learn about how the Shang Dynasty began and ended. 

Our Science topic will be animals and living things. 

Our Geography topic will have a focus on mountains. 

In RE we will be looking at Christianity and Judaism. 

We will also be continuing with our Maths No Problem lessons which will be followed by some different types of questions to help us develop our mathematical skills. 

PE will be on a Monday and a Friday and children can come into school in their PE kits on these days. We are looking at athletics and outdoor adventurous activities. 

Spellings will be sent out on a Monday for a test the following Monday. Homework will also be set on a Monday and due in the following Monday. It will be on the Google Classroom but if your child requires a paper copy, please let me know. 

In Year 5, we use lots of websites to help to support our learning including:

Times Tables Rockstars




SPAG Monsters

Children should have their log ins for all of these websites but if they don't, please let me know and I can sort that out. 

Lots of information about our school day and what went well is sent out on Marvellous Me, so make sure you have the app downloaded to keep in touch with us during the day! We will also try to keep you up-to-date with all that is going on in our class on Twitter, so keep an eye out for us there too.
