Welcome to Year 5!
Year 5 is in an important year in your child's education, as it prepares them for Year 6 and their future SATs tests. They continue to develop skills learnt in Lower Key Stage 2, across a broad and balanced curriculum, in which the following topics will be explored. It is essential that pupils continue to read daily and practise their times table fact and number bonds.
Our autumn topics consist of 'Stargazers' - where we learn all about space, and 'Pharaohs', where we learn about Ancient Egypt.
In the spring term, we study 'Off with her Head', which is all about The Tudors.
In the summer term, our topics are Time Traveller, in which we encounter important people from the past, and Allotments, where we learn to grow our own fruit and vegetables.
Your child will have the opportunity to participate in a number of school trips, including Selly Manor, and welcome visitors who are experts in their field such as staff from Think Tank museum and an Egyptologist. There will also be the chance to go on a five day residential to Kingswood.
Welcome to Year 5, from Mrs Desai, Mrs Best, Mrs Meiring, Mr Hunt and Miss English!
