Year 5 - The Sea Dragons
Welcome to our Year 5 Sea Dragon Page!
It might be the end of term but we've been working hard in computing and learning about spreadsheets!

This half term we will be studying rivers and then the sea. We shall be going on a local river walk and conducting some investigations - perhaps a picnic lunch if the weather lets up. And our English will be based on poetry inspired by rivers for the first 3 weeks. Then our final 3 weeks shall be an adventure story set at the coast, perhaps a mystery involving smugglers? Or a brave rescue? A shipwreck?
In Maths we will be pulling together all the Y5 learning so far this year and trying to fill in gaps in knowledge and especially trying to re-cover all things fractions.
Book Bags - Thank you for: filling your child's reading record in each Tuesday, wherever they are up to in the book, and sending in each Wednesday in the book bag along with Homework books which are signed. A conscientious home learning routine not only helps ahead of Y6 and Secondary, but also helps celebrate your child taking responsibility for their learning - and maybe help gain an extra playtime!
Homework - Each week please help your child: learn spellings; check back through their marked Maths weekly skills sheet and help practise a few of the concepts; and TH - talk homework - is to chat about upcoming English or theme work ahead of Monday's lessons to gain a head start.
PPA - Mrs Wilkinson will be teaching Year 5 on Wednesday afternoons. This term she will be teaching French and IT.
PE - PE will be cricket, athletics and bowls over the Summer term on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Music - This term we will be learning steel drums on Thursday afternoons. There will be a performance for parents after about 10 weeks. I will confirm a date and time as soon and Mrs Salt (the music teacher) is ready.
