Well done on a fantastic performance! 



Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn Term - we hope you are ready for lots more exciting learning opportunities . This half term in English we will be following the Power of Reading and looking at 'The Adventures of Odysseus.' In maths we will be working on multiplication and division. Science will focus on life cycles and the similarities and differences between different types of animals, and in Project we are travelling back in time to Ancient Greece.
Please check our webpage regularly for any updates and come and speak to us before or after school if you have any questions. 
We are hoping to take Year Five on various trips to support their learning through the academic year. We will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible and greatly appreciate volunteers who are able to come with us and make these trips possible - please see letters section below for dates.
