Welcome to the second half of the Autumn Term! You all seem to have settled into Year 5 really well and we hope you are looking forward to lots more exciting learning. This half term we have got lots of interesting topics and lessons planned such as looking at the Ancient Greeks in Project and learning about Life Cycles in Science. English sessions will focus on another fantastic Power of Reading book, The Adventures of Odysseus, and there will be plenty more investigations to get your teeth into in Maths. We also have some exciting trips planned... Hopefully it'll be another fantastic half term.
If you have a question please do not hesitate to contact the class teacher, and thanks for your continued support.

We expect Year 5 children to change their own reading books as often as possible, bringing their reading records in to school frequently to be checked by the class teacher.  We encourage you to read as much as you can- at least 20 minutes every day!
