Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year Five!

We are looking forward to the year ahead as we have a lot of exciting topics to learn about. These include a history focus, where we will explore what life was like during Ancient Greek times. We will learn about life in Ancient Greece and use Greek Mythology to write our own narrative. One of our geography focuses will be Earthquakes where children will consider the impact that earthquakes have on land and civilisation. Later in the year, we will learn about crime and punishment and find out how this has changed over time.

Children will still be expected to read five times a week and record these in their Reading Records, these should be signed by an adult. It is important that children read a range of different text types and continue to discuss what they are reading with an adult at home. As well as reading, children are expected to regularly practise their spellings and times tables. Homework will be set fortnightly and can be found on Purple Mash, if you require a hard copy, please ask.

We look forward to working with you all over the coming year.
