Welcome to Year 5 

Our topic this term is

'The World' 

Our class mascot is called 'Disco' and will be going on weekend adventures with everyone in our class! Disco will be handed out on Friday and needs to be returned to school on Monday.

We will also be having a weekly Maths Rucksack and Reading Rucksack which will be handed out to children at the end of the week to practice Maths and read a range of books at home. This will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned on Monday.

In PE we have been looking at Hockey and Dances from around the world! We are currently learning the 'Haka'

At school we are focussing on being positive. In Year 5 we drew around our hands and wrote 5 strengths about ourselves.

For homework this term the children will be given weekly Maths homework a long with spellings homework. The spellings in their homework folders are there to be practiced all year round to boost their spelling knowledge. They also have a termly piece of homework- where they need to research a different country each week. In total the children should have research 6 different countries by October half term!
