Dear Parents and Guardians

The children have now settled into the routine of Year 5. They are working hard and now need to continue to read at least once a week, learn their weekly spellings and ensure they know their times tables for our daily times table rock stars.

In Science this half term, we will be learning about the planets in the solar system and how day and night times vary around the world. We have linked this to our English work, where we will be learning about the first moon landing and writing newspaper articles linked to this historic event.

We will also be learning the names of the planets in French and writing simple sentences to describe them. In mathematics, we will be concentrating on multiplication and division.

In History, we will continue to learn about the Ancient Greeks, concentrating on famous Greeks who are still well known today, such as Hippocrates and Pythagoras and their legacy to modern times.

Just to remind you that homework is given out on Friday and should be returned by Wednesday.

Thank you for your continued support.


Mrs Coyne – Class Teacher 5C
