Welcome to Year 5!
We hope you have had a lovely time over the summer holidays and are ready to work hard in Year 5.
We have a jam packed, fun filled term ahead of us that we know you are going to enjoy.
Our Science topic this term will be Earth and Space, so we will be conducting exciting experiments and learning about the planets and how they move through space. We will be travelling back to the Shang Dynasty of ancient China in History. We will learn all about daily life for people back then, find out who the infamous Fu Hao is and create ancient Chinese artefacts.
In R.E. children will investigate different religious and non-religious groups and find out about their belief in God, enquiring into the key question ‘Why do some people believe God exists?’ raising questions about the nature and existence of God, focusing on Christian ideas about God. They will consider why people do or don’t believe in God and the impact that it might have on the way they live their everyday life
Our PE kit consists of:
- White T-shirt
- Sweatshirt or tracksuit top
- Navy shorts or tracksuit bottoms
- Sports socks
- Trainers or pumps
Please make sure your child has the appropriate kit in school every day.
We feel that school uniform gives a sense of belonging and by dressing correctly, pupils can demonstrate their pride in their school.
Our school uniform is:
Trousers – black, grey or navy
Polo/cotton shirt – white or pale blue, with or without school logo
Skirt/pinafore – grey, black or navy
Sweatshirt/jumper – plain navy, with or without school logo
Cardigan – plain navy, with or without school logo
Fleece – plain navy, with or without school logo
We also ask that children have suitable shoes for school and not trainers.
All equipment is provided by school and we would prefer it if children did not bring their own pencils and pencil cases, however, a water bottle would be very useful to your child in order for them to access a drink throughout the school day.
Homework will be given out to the children on Wednesday and should be completed by the following Monday. It is important that the children bring their homework book, their reading record and their reading book to school every day.
Seesaw & Class Dojo
We use both apps in Year 5, they will give you an insight into your child’s day at school and inform you when your child receives a reward.
We look forward to meeting you all,
Mrs Fernández, Mrs Whitehead, Mrs Lynch and Mrs Dote
