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!
Antibullying Week Twinning

Last week was antibullying week and in Year 5 we learned about empathy and being a good friend. We read the story ‘Leave Me Alone’ by Kes Gray, which was about friends sticking together, being empathetic and standing up for each other. Year 5 then innovated this story by adding unexpected vocabulary and ensuring they were using their speech toolkit to punctuate dialogue correctly. 5 Dali decided this would be a great opportunity to meet with their twinned class R Klee in the learning zone and teach the younger children what they had learned. Miss Brimble read both classes the story and then the children from 5 Dali read their innovated versions to their new friends in Early Years. Both classes discussed how to be a good friend and the Year 5 children also taught the younger ones what empathy means. It was a lovely afternoon that all the children enjoyed.

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.
