Welcome to Year 5!
We hope you have had a lovely time off over the Christmas holidays and are raring to go for this term!
We have a jam packed, fun filled term ahead of us where our Geography topic will be Brazil and the Amazon Rainforest where we will be learning all about:
- Layers of the Rainforest
- Life in the Amazon Rainforest
- Animals and food chains
- Life in Brazil
As always, we have some exciting books that we will be focusing on this term and children will have the opportunity to use their digital skills to create videos and perform their work.
Please see the Termly Overview below to view our core subjects in more detail.
This term PE lessons will be every Tuesday and Wednesday. Children must remember to bring their swimming kit and P.E kit weekly, this includes:
. Sweatshirt or tracksuit top
. Navy shorts or tracksuit bottoms
. Sports socks
. Trainers or pumps
Please make sure your child has the appropriate kit for these days.
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 upload their work to Seesaw and bring their reading record and their reading book to school every day.
We look forward to our next term together,
Mrs Fernández, Miss Whitehead, Mrs Lynch & Mrs Dote
