Class Curriculum

Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome back Year 5 after your well deserved rest over half term.

We are really looking forward to the new projects and exciting learning we have planned for you all this term in the run up to Christmas.

We will be starting our new Cornerstones project, ‘Stargazers’ where we will learn all about space, the planets, gravity and if there could be life other than us in the Universe…?!  Keep an eye out for further information about our upcoming Stargazing evening on 12th November.

Our class novel this half term is Floodland, the tale of a young girl in search of her parents after she is left on the island of Norwich after the world has flooded.

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

As writers we will be developing our suspense in stories, especially defeating the monster tales as we will be studying the story Hansel and Gretel.

As mathematicians we will consolidate our place value knowledge and use it to help us solve multiplication and division problems.

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!

Mrs Hill and Mrs Butler.
