Classes: Otters and Panthers

This term in Year 5 our geography topic is Extreme Earth. We will be looking at different types of extreme weather and natural disasters, with a particular focus on volcanoes.

Our science work is all about living things and their habitats. There will be a focus on how plants and animals reproduce, and how they are suited towards their habitats.

Year 5 have an exciting trip to look forward to this year. We will be heading to Robin Hood’s Bay at the beginning of July. Here we will take part in activities such as rock pooling and landscape sketching. In addition to this, we will be walking and taking part in beach activities. During this trip, our aim is to compare contrasting villages, challenge ourselves and of course to have fun!

Reading is something we love to do and we really hope you can share this experience with your child. We ask you to listen to your child read daily and write a note in their diary to let the teacher know how they got on.

In Year 5, P.E is done every week. It is very important that each child brings their own P.E kit (shorts, t-shirt and plimsoles) and keeps this in school each half term.

The Year 5 team are always available and happy to discuss any queries you may have.

Please note, if you would like more details about the Key Stage 2 Curriculum please contact Mrs Emily Preece.
