Welcome to Year 5

 

It is fantastic to have you all back at school after a crazy year.  I'm sure you have all missed your friends and learning at school.  This term our topic is 'Time Travellers' which is based around the Groovy Greeks.  To see all the links to our topic have a look at the grid below.

Spellings

Children will need to learn their spellings for a weekly test which will be on Mondays.  

 

Reading

In year 5 my aim is for every child to read at least 3 times a week.  This can be their school book, library book or own book.  Reading must be recorded in the reading record which will be checked every Friday.  Children who read regularly will be rewarded!

Look at the top 100 books to read for year 5/6!

Children will have outdoor PE on Thursday and indoor on Friday.  They will need a pair of trainers for outdoor PE.

School PE kit is a white t-shirt and dark shorts.  A dark coloured track suit may be worn for outdoor PE.
