Class Curriculum

Welcome to Year 5!

We are really looking forward to settling back into our school routines and learning with you all.

A lot of you may be feeling anxious and a little apprehensive about returning as it has been so long since we were all together but please do not worry as it will be so good to see you all!

We have worked hard to make sure we will be safe in our class ‘bubbles’ and we have planned a thrilling curriculum to keep you excited and engaged during this first half term back at school.

We will be starting our new Cornerstones project, ‘Off with Her Head!’ where we will learn all about the Tudor kings and queens and their gruesome methods of dealing with people they don’t like!

Our class novel this half term is Artemis Fowl, the tale of the criminal genius 12 year old who decides to take on the fairy world.

Please ensure your reading book and record are in school every day.  We are looking forward to sharing regular Book Buzzes with you all!

As writers we will be developing our settings in stories, especially warning tales as we will be studying the story The Canal.

As mathematicians we will consolidate our place value knowledge, ordering and comparing numbers and thinking about our reasoning skills.

Remember to have your outdoor PE kit in school every week and check the Home Learning section every Friday to practise your spellings and maths facts for your tests the following week.

Please contact us at l.hill@southill.dorset.sch.uk or t.butler@southill.dorset.sch.uk at anytime if you have any queries or anything to share or celebrate with us, it is always great to hear from you all!

We are looking forward to a fantastic first term in Year 5 with you all,

Mrs Hill and Mrs Butler.
