Welcome to Year 5
In Year 5, we embrace the school values - REACH.
We strive to be the best we can be, enjoy making the most of a variety of learning opportunities and have fun during our time together at school.

We will continue to develop our skills in historical enquiry through - studying the fascinating topic of Ancient Greece, whilst also widening our geographical knowledge of the world and developing mapping skills.
In Science we will undertake a number of investigations through our unit on electricity - including designing a burglar alarm and an electonic game!
We also look forward to our trip to Ascot Racecourse on the 6th May where the children will develop their understanding of how maths is used in a variety of contexts in a fun and engaging way.
Our lessons on PSHE will focus on 'Being my Best' and 'Growing and Changing'. Look out on Seesaw for a video on the latter about what we will cover so you can continue these discussions at home.
Our PE days during the Summer Term will be on Monday and Wednesday - children should come into school in their PE kit on those days. In addition we will be swimming on Tuesday.
- Learning, and then practising applying times tables (Mathshed)
- Regular reading (both independently and with an adult) - see reading tips file for useful questions to prompt discussion and develop comprehension skills.
