Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Welcome to Year 5! I hope that everyone had wonderful Christmas holiday and that you are all raring to go this term. We have already made flying start to 2020 and we won't be slowing down; this term is a busy one!

 

Our topic this term will be a study of the Maya civilisation. This is an area of history that the children don't have much prior knowledge of, so each lesson is an exciting opportunity to learn about this fascinating group of people. There are some surprises in store for sure!

During the spring term, we will be going swimming on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure that you have your swimming kit on this day.

Homework will continue to be sent home on a Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Reading books should be read, signed and returned to school as often as possible. Remember to check our Class Dojo story to keep up to date with what has been going on in our classroom.

 

If you have any other questions or anything you would like to talk about, just ask.
