A warm welcome to our Year 5 page! If your child is in Year 5 then please familiarise yourself with this page as it will let you know the various activities the class are currently involved in.
I hope you have all had a lovely and relaxing Easter break. As we return to school on Monday 12th April, we will start our new geography topic. We will be focusing on the enquiry question 'What is the Difference Between Surviving and Living?' for this topic we will dive into a refugee's life, reading the book Parvana's Journey by Deborah Ellis, taking this forward in our reading and English lessons creating setting descriptions, character studies, letters and diary entries. It's a very exciting topic that will create many opportunities to think, research and compare our lives in Edlington to those of children all around the world! For more information on our lessons in Y5, please explore the links below as well as looking at our class newsletter for new vocabulary on our topic too!
We also start swimming this term - we will be going swimming on a Tuesday afternoon, so please try your best to remember the correct kit. PE remains on a Wednesday with Mr O'Neill, it's very important that our children dress appropriately following our school dress code for PE. As the weather gets warmer (fingers crossed) all children must bring a bottle of water to school with their name on it, to stay hydrated during the school day.
Thank you Y5 for all your hard work and effort,
Miss McHale and Mrs Lee
Spellings for the week will go out with the children on Monday and we will do a spelling test on Friday. Please encourage your child to practice their spellings at home as there will be DOJO points available to children that have worked hard!
Children will be given Reading homework on a Wednesday and it will be due back in on the following Monday - DOJO points will be awarded to children that give their homework in on time!
