I will continue to post tasks, ideas and websites on a regular basis linked to the subjects and topics that were planned for this year.

Religious Education

This term we will be focusing on the following topics: memorial Sacrifice - Eucharist as the living memorial of Christ’s sacrifice

and during Lent/ Easter our topic is sacrifice - Lent: a time of aligning with the sacrifice made by Jesus. 



Our class reader this term is Wonder. In the Autumn Term we were lucky enough to see the film at the cinema in Hexham. Children are explicitly taught the skills of reading outlined in the KS2 test domains through the use of 'VIPERS' which was created by Rob Smith (The Literacy Shed). 

Our English lessons for the next few weeks are based on the film 'Little Freak' which is also from the Literacy Shed. 



We will be covering measurement: converting units, measurement: perimeter, area and volume and statistics. We will be following the White Rose Maths Scheme of learning (small steps). 



Our topic in science this term is Electricity. 



In geography this term we will be learning all about America (North and South America). 



This term, PE will take place on a Monday and Thursday afternoon. Year 5 will be swimming on a Monday afternoon. All children must remember to bring in their swimming kits every Monday. 



The children will be given a different spelling rule to learn each week. Children are expected to learn their set of spellings during the week ready for a spelling test every Friday. 


Times tables

It is important that children continue to practice their times tables. Children have times table practice in school through Times Table Rock Stars. It is important that children access this at home. 


Reading Books

Children have reading books and diaries that are sent home with them everyday. Children are encouraged to read for at least 20 minutes per evening and to record their reading in their diaries. Children can also access Read Theory and record the quizzes they've take in their diaries too. Parents/Carers are asked to sign their child's diary once a week. 



Children have a homework grid which is in their homework book. Children are asked to choose at least one activity each week to complete and bring into school. Please help to support your child when completing their homework which is due into school every Wednesday
