Welcome to Year 5
Around the World in 80 Days - Summer 1 Topic
This half term, our topic will focus on geographical skills. We will be presenting this under the heading 'Around the World in 80 Days'. As you all know already, we will start by watching the film but will also be reading the book and use this as a stimulus to our learning. We hope that the children will enjoy this topic and learn lots about the world around them!
Please ensure that you have looked at your child's home school project as it is a practical one so may need some adult support with this. Many thanks for your continued support.
Literacy/ Spellings/ Maths - all given out on a Thursday and expected in on a Tuesday. Children will complete all homework in their new homework book, including practicing their spellings.
Reading - the children are expected to read at least five times every week. School organisers will be checked every Monday to ensure they have been reading. Remember, every time your child reads, they will also earn a 'body' for their book bug.
Topic - we will check the progress of projects every week on a Tuesday. If the project is art/sculpture based (i.e. too big/impractical to bring into school every week) then please write a note updating us on the progress of the project in the school organiser or homework book.
Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school every Friday afternoon. They will have both indoor and outdoor PE so will need kit appropriate for both (extra layers for outdoors if needed)
