Welcome to Year 5
We hope that you enjoyed the summer holidays. Welcome back to a brand new school year. We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning in this academic year. The children will be starting new topics shortly with a fun and creative starter day or activity.
Year 5 pupils will study Ancient Greece this term with a close focus on the geography, culture and customs. We have already began our research and found out many amazing facts about the Greeks.
We would like to remind you that the children need to have their reading books, alongside their reading logs in school every day. Please ensure that your child reads everyday for at least 30 – 40 minutes. The reading logs also need to be signed by parents daily to acknowledge that your child has read. Please encourage your child to complete a variety of reading activities based on the books they have read.
Homework is given weekly, on a Friday, to be returned on the following Wednesday. Our classrooms are going to have an engaging classroom library which will enable children to enjoy a wider variety of books and develop their knowledge of authors.
Please remember that if you have any questions or concerns about your child, you are always welcome to speak to the class teacher after school at pick up time or alternatively, make an appointment if you think you need a longer discussion.
