Welcome to 2018 and our Spring term. We hope that everybody had a fantastic Christmas break and that the children are raring to go for another brilliant term. The children worked incredibly hard during the Autumn term and we are looking forward to seeing them continue to develop their knowledge and understanding of the year 5 curriculum.
This term we have lots of exciting things planned for the children, including our trip to the Harry Potter Studios as part of our English unit, we are also looking at Africa in History, PE and Art and will study the poem The Highwayman. In the second part of the Spring term, we will be learning about Mountains and will continue our Science work on forces including some very exciting investigations.
A reminder about the structure and expectations in year 5.
In class, the children will be expected to have the following items in their pencil case:
