Welcome to Year 5 2020/2021
Hello Year 5! 
Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn Term and we hope you had a restful break. We were super impressed by how well Year 5 adjusted to being back at school and some fantastic learning has taken place. This half term we are looking forward to reading The Adventures of Odyssues with you in English and finding out about the Ancient Greeks in History. We will be taking off in Science and finding out all about Space... For more information, please have a look at the curriculum newsletter attached below. 
We hope you and your families are keeping well. If you have any question please do not hesitate to contact us. 
Ms Douglas and Ms Harman

 Autumn Two Spelling Overview 


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!
