Year 5

Welcome back to 2019!

We hope you had a fantastic Christmas and a super New Year.


We are excited about going to watch The Snow Queen at the Brewhouse on Thursday 17th January.


We have an action-packed term ahead of us, starting with a new topic finding out about where we live in the world and why. Finding out about the great lakes and how they are formed. We shall also study rocks and fossils and how lakes are used by humans.

 In our Physical Geography, we shall find out how hills were formed around Wellington and why there is so much farmland. Finally, we will study the Development of Fox Brothers - the cloth industry in Wellington and the use of the mill ponds now and the decline in industry.

Our English will be woven into our topic and the children will be writing Explanation texts, Persuasive texts and reading Native American Myths and writing their own.

In Maths we shall practise and learn about Multiplication, Division, Percentages, Decimals and Fractions.

Our RE topic will be finding out about the question: How do people express their beliefs and identity? 

PE will be on the same days as last term: Galadriel -  Thursday and Friday 

Thorin -  Wednesday and Thursday.

Reminders:  Homework is given on a Friday and expected to be given back the following Friday and Spellings are tested each Friday.

As ever, if you have any questions or worries, please either see one of us in the playground at 8:45am or after school. If this isn't convenient please email/phone the school to make an appointment.


Thank you for your continued support
