Welcome to Year 5

Autumn Term 1


A massive welcome back following the Summer holidays, and an even bigger welcome to Year 5! I am looking forward to this new year, and I am sure that the children are too!  


We will begin the Autumn term with a Topic based on Harry Potter. Children will explore lots of exciting activities based around the original first book i the series, 'The Philosopher's Stone' and using clips from the films to inspire their writing. 

Children will enjoy many activities from cooking, to building cricuits and exploring our area within school. 


The children have been given a home/school reading diary that must be brought into school every day.  It has space to record reading times whether that is in school or at home.  We ask that you encourage your child to read at least 10 minutes every day and record this in the diary.  We ask that you as a parent sign this book at least three times every week.  We will sign it every time your child reads with an adult.

The children will be given a book to read at home and in school.  Some children may have books at home that enjoy reading - this is absolutely fine and should be encouraged.  



Homework every week will be spellings given out every Monday with times tables to accompany them. This will then be tested each Friday. In addition, children will be expected to read every night, botjh a book or online on Bug Club.
