Weekly Update – 13.09.2019

We’ve had a great first full week in Year 5 and the children have begun their new topics enthusiastically! Routines have been established and the children are enjoying the extra responsibilities and differences that are associated with being in UKS2.

Next week in French we will be revising the vocabulary of asking about brothers and sisters. Indoor PE will be dance based on Victorian inventions (Mondays) and outdoor PE (Thursdays) will cover netball and basketball skills. Please ensure that your children have full PE kits in school on a Monday and leave them all week, several children had no kits last week.

Our History topic on Victorians has begun with an overview of this interesting era.  Children will have a History lesson one week and a Science lesson the following week and then alternate throughout the term. In Science we looked at the evidence which shows that the sun, moon and earth are roughly spherical.

In Computing we are focussing on e-safety and will be considering password safety. PSHE will involve looking at British values. Our Art lessons will also have a focus on Victorian inventions and will be based on a book called R is for Railway. Our RE lessons will be looking at the Hindu concept of yoga pathways.

Children have been issued with a brass instrument which will remain in school until approximately half term. Please return any paperwork relating to this if you have not already done so.

A reminder that homework is due in on Wednesdays – one piece per week. Thank you.

Have a great weekend,

Year 5 Teaching team.
