This Term

'Can we survive out of this world?'


Our topic this term is  'Can we survive out of this world?' 

We are having fun learning about the Earth and other planets on our solar system. Click on the picture to learn more about space.

Lots of our Literacy and topic work is based on our class read  "Cosmic" by Frank Cottrell Boyce.

We are larning how to write journalistic reports, space  poems and  how to write persuasively.

We prepare questions to interview people and make notes when searching the internet for a specific information for our topic work so we can write reports,newspaper articles and fictional stories.

 In Science we are learning how to conduct investigations on movements of planets, forces and gravity.

Maths is a very exciting subject and we are mastering our skills in applying four rules of mathematics into  whole numbers, fractions and decimals.

Year 5 children just love solving word problems and making their own.
We can even juggle large numbers up to 1,000,000 - adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing and sequencing!

How cool is that?

In DT we are  researching various spacecrafts and will be designing and making our own space rockets.


This term we are planning to take the children to the Science Museum.

Click on this cosmic passage and it will transport you into the Science Museum in nanoseconds.


Homework is given out on a Friday and should be returned the following Tuesday.

It is important that children complete their homework as this helps to consolidate the learning they do in school. Developing good routines for completing homework will also support the children's independent learning skills.

Spellings will be given out every Friday and will be tested the following Friday.

We expect every child to read everday at home. Reading practice is most effective when done with a parent or other adult who can help their child by checking what they have understood from their reading.
