Welcome to Year 5. I trust you have all had a wonderful Summer holiday and are feeling refreshed and ready to start a new school year. I look forward to getting to know all of you better!
Our main topic this term will be Space. We will be exploring Earth and Space both through Science and History and much of our creative writing will link in with this topic. I hope to also arrange a Space related school trip later in this term which will be very exciting!
Shortly I will be inviting parents to a Year 5 meeting where I will inform you of the Year 5 Curriculum and expectations. For now though, just to let you know that Year 5 will have PE on Fridays and swimming will take place each Thursday afternoon throughout Year 5. Once the children have had their swimming induction in class, I will let you know of the start date. Year 5 will be able to come to school on a Thursday and Friday wearing their full PE kit - please make sure that your child also brings their PE shorts on a Friday and that these, including jumpers, are named to avoid confusion.
