Jesus said, "I have come in order that you may have life - life in all its fullness."
Hello and welcome to the summer term in Year 5 DF!
I hope you have had a wonderful Easter holiday and are looking forward to our new term together. We have lots of exciting activities planned as we are beginning our new topic 'Ancient Greeks'. I am really looking forward to a successful and enjoyable summer with the children.
Our focus for this half term is Respect. We will be adding to our Values tab how we are exploring how that looks in our school and how we can live it out in our lives, as Jesus taught us to.
Our RE enriches all of our learning. This half term, we are looking at the question...
'How and why should religious communities do more to care for the earth?'

Things to remember in Year 5
- School planners and reading books should be in school every day.
- Children need to have their own water bottle in school every day.
- Toast is served each morning. This can be paid for online and is £10 per term.
Homework will be set for each topic - please do try to complete as many of the activities as possible to earn points that will earn a special prize at the end of each topic for those children who have reached their target. Be creative and really show that love of learning at home as well as in school
Children will be expected to complete their reading, weekly spellings and times tables on TT Rockstars. This will support their progress throughout the year in literacy and numeracy.
Please note: Our PE sessions are on Monday and Thursday afternoons.
The children will now bring in their school PE kit (including a plain sweatshirt) and leave it in their lockers. Please send them in long joggers when the weather begins to turn and a waterproof in the event of rain. We will try to access PE outside whenever we can.
Children will have their own reading books to take home. We look forward to seeing your progress on our reading chart.
We will be reading a class book each half term - some will be linked to our topic, others simply because they are awesome stories and great examples for us to magpie from in our own writing!
We have a well resourced school library where the children are allowed to select a book and there is also a reading corner in the classroom which we will encourage the children to use regularly to really build that love of reading.
This term's topic is a history and geography focus:
