This year we have planned so many fascinating topics for Year 5. This year, the children will take on more responsibility than ever, driving forward their own learning and consolidating all of the skills that they’ve been working so hard on lower down the school. In the autumn term, our focus in English and Science will be intergalactic so we will visit the Greenwich Observatory to cast our eyes far further than we might ever have done before. Our maths work will continue to deepen the knowledge of number, shape and measure which has been taught previously. Our other topics will be gradually revealed as we move through the year – it’s a great idea to be having ongoing conversations with your children about the work they’re doing at school.
This term Willow will continue to have PE twice a week. We will be following our REAL PE program to develop children’s basic core balance and agility skills. All children need to have full P.E. kit to participate. Our P.E. uniform is white t-shirt, navy/black shorts and trainers or plimsolls.
Homework is set every Thursday and should come back the following Tuesday at the latest. It will include spellings grammar activities and some Maths challenges. It continues to be of paramount importance that the children read at home every day for 20 minutes. Your child’s understanding of the world around them, as well as their present and future academic attainment, relies heavily on them completing this essential daily task.
