Welcome back Year 5!

Welcome back to our last term together! I cannot believe we are now two thirds of the way through Year 5. This year is flying by too quickly I hope you will find the learning adventure that awaits you this term fun, exciting and packed full of interesting facts.  This term we will be learning all about the Amazon Rainforest. We will be journeying there with Fred, Con, Max and Lila in our new book 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell. This will be our class story and it is one of our '5 Favourite Books'. Our other favourite books. This term are:

  • My Name Is River by Emma Rae
  • Secrets of the Rainforest by Carren Brown
  • Amazon Adventure by Lonely Planet Kids
  • There's a Rang-Tan in My Bedroom by James Sellick

Young Voices
Young Voices is will be taking place this term on May 26th.

Homework will continue to be set each Friday. You will either have a SPaG.com or a Maths.co.uk piece of homework to complete. If you find that you've got a busy week on and you can't quite get your homework done, don't worry because I will run homework clubs during the week (some lunchtimes) to help you out. Therefore, please be sure to use them whenever you need to. Homework will be checked and re-visited each week. The expectations for reading also remain the same. We ask that you read out loud to an adult 3 times a week to boost your reading fluency and help develop your skills.

Please keep up to date with what is going on in our Year 5 classroom by following our posts on Facebook and Twitter.

I am looking forward to where our next learning adventure takes us and I hope you are too,

Your teacher,

Miss Pennance
