Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome back to the last half of the Summer Term, our last few weeks together in Year 5!

We hope you have had a fabulous Half Term break and are feeling rested and refreshed.  We are really excited about the projects and lessons we have planned for the next few weeks.  This term continues to be so important in showing what we know and learning all we can, academically and socially, ready for Year 6.  Let’s work together to make this last half term before the end of the school year really special!

We will be starting our new Cornerstones project, ‘Pharoahs’ where we will travel back 5000 years to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt! We will cruise along the Nile, entering a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings, powerful Pharoah and grandiose Gods!

We will finish our class novel Beetle Boy, then begin reading Secrets of the Sun King, entering a world of Egyptian pharaohs and ancient curses.

Please remember to read regularly at home and bring your reading book and record to school every day.

As writers we will be completing our discussion texts in our non-fiction unit, looking at all sides to form a balanced argument.  Then we will create some Information texts and hybrid stories, bringing together two styles of story – in one!

As mathematicians we will continue our learning of shape, space and measures, moving onto geometry and angles.

Remember to have your outdoor PE kit in school every week and check the Home Learning section every Friday to practice 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 anytime if you have any queries or anything to share or celebrate with us, it is always great to hear from you all!
