Welcome to Year 5!

You will find our curriculum information further down the page!
What are we learning this term?
During the Spring term, our theme is 'To Infinity and Beyond', where we will be immersing ourselves in all things outer space! This will include learning about how aspects such as the rotation of the Earth impact on our daily life, hosting debates about the moon landing, a trip to the Space Centre as well as some surprises along the way!

Over the last week year 5 have been trying out a programme called Timestable Rock Stars and we are really starting to see a difference in their timestable knowledge. In our year group we have Breakthrough Acts all the way to Rock Star Legends, and many children are now down to answering questions in less than 3 seconds. We thought we would share a few stats with you - if you aren't named here maybe you can appear next week !

J Miner - 1.67 secs
Will Flowers- 2.14 secs

Helping at Home
In Year 5, the children are set weekly spellings on a Monday which are tested on a Friday; on Thursday we also set an additional piece of home learning which is due on a Tuesday- this term we will be focusing particularly on our timestables.
In addition to this, please continue to support your child with their reading by regularly reading to them, listening to them read and asking them questions about their reading.
Although many children read fluently and independently at this age, in order to build higher level comprehension skills it is important that children are given the opportunity to discuss what they have read.
