Welcome to Year 5.
We hope you have had a lovely break over the Easter holidays. Some of you may have celebrated festivals such as Easter and Vaisakhi and some of you may have begun Ramadan- I’m sure many of us have celebrated being able to visit friends and family in outdoor spaces. We can’t wait to hear what you have been up to!
It is a great time to be back in school- the sun is shining, the days are longer and we are jumping into an ‘out of this world’ module!
Break out the non-fiction! For this Science based module, we will be using newspaper articles, non-fiction texts and informative websites such as Encyclopedia Britannica, to research something much bigger than just our world. We will also be creating mnemonics to help us remember important information. The first letters of the words within the phrase are: M, V, E, M, J, S, U, N. Can you guess what this phrase and our Module could be about?
We will also be using mints, pasta pieces, lasagne sheets and spaghetti sticks to create a vehicle with a very specific role. Remember, just like the professionals, we will have to create with precision and in-depth planning.
This module links closely with our Core Skills of Lifelong Learning.
This half term we will be reading ‘My Life as a Cat’ by Carlie Sorosiak, as well as a variety of poetry.
Please remember to label your child's uniform, water bottle and PE kit. PE kits will be sent home each week to be washed and returned on Monday. Year 5 should arrive at school between 08.50 and 09.00.
