Welcome to Year 5! In year 5 Mr Podmore will teach the class but 1 day a week, Mrs Bouckley will cover. 

What we are learning this term
We will start the year focusing on our concept driven project ‘Do we need to protect everything that is at risk?' Key concepts/ vocabulary we will discuss and use to drive this project are protect, loss, sustainability and community.
In the Spring term, we will think about 'Is power always a good thing?' The driver of this topic will be learning about the Anglo-Saxons and Scots and the children will create through DT and Art.
In the Summer term, childen will consider 'Can everyone be wise?'. This topic will be explored throug P4C sessions. During the term, children will study other elements of the curriculum such as space in Science and the Mayans in History.

PE  and swimming
Pease check the school newsletter for when our PE days. Children should come to school wearing their PE kit on this day.  Our school PE kit is a white polo shirt and black shorts with trainers or pumps. As the weather gets colder, the children are welcome to wear black jogging bottoms and a black jumper/their red school jumper.

Homework will be set on Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday. Ideally, we would love children to read everyday and be read to as often as possible to build up their vocabulary and understanding of texts. Spellings will be set and from time-to-time appropriate maths or further literacy set. 
If you have any questions then please get in touch via email or class dojo.
