Welcome to our class page

Mrs Spain and Miss Stewart

Thank you to all of the parents who made it to the Curriculum Meeting last week! We hope we were able to answer any questions you may have had. For any parents who were unable to attend, we have copies of handouts that you can request, we are also available after school to answer any of your questions. The slides from the meeting are saved on the class page.

This term we will be studying lots of fantastic topics including Space in our Science lessons and The Victorians in History including a trip to Preston Manor!

Week begining 25/09/17

This week we are focusing on words with the suffic 'tious and cious' in our spelling. We are going to continue reading our Victorian text 'Street Child' in our English lessons and using this to write a description of the workhouse from one characters perspective. 

In Maths we will be studying rounding numbers (up to 7 digit) up and down based on place value.

In RE we are begining the topic 'Ourselves' thinking about what makes us important and special, we are also thinking about how we can be peacemakers.

The Year 5 PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays so please make sure your child has their PE kit in school on these days.

We will be learning Spanish on a Thursday morning and Violins and Cellos will be on a Tuesday morning.
