Welcome to Year 5!
The Final Frontier
This term we are learnind about the Earth and Space. Year 5 pupils have all become space cadets and their challenge is to find a planet which can support life.
To help us we visited the National Space Centre on Thursday 24th October.
Space Cadets recounts of the day will be coming to this site very shortly.

Visits to Malcolm Sargent School
All the children in Year 5 will have the opportunity to visit children at
Malcolm Sargent School on Stamford and to spend the day lwarning along side them.
Visits will take place on Monday 11th November and Monday 25th November.
More details to follow shortly.
This term children will consider their networks of people who are special to them, and how they are changing and developing as they get older and prepare to move on to secondary school. They will continue to develop their skills in making new friendships, and in maintaining and coping with challenges in existing friendships and other relationships. They will also consider the value of diversity within friendships, and understand that there is a wide range of different family situations in which people live. The role of groups in friendship will be considered, including both the benefits and pressures that can bring. They will explore why and how to seek support from people they trust, and how they themselves can and do support others.
In Year 5, we use Education City for our home learning, as well as the occasional printed activity. Any children who don't have the internet at home, are invited to join our Home Learning ICT club. All children in Year 5 have their own log-in details - if you forget, see a teacher to remind you.
We encourage children to drink plenty of water during the day, as it helps with concentration. Please bring a transparent bottle with a sports-style pull-up lid.
Remember to read every night!
Remember to complete your homelearning!
Remember to learn your times tables!
On Tuesday 19th February and Wednesday 20th February 2013, 16 children from Year 5 visited London. Below are photographs of the children enjoying the sunshine at Hampton Court Palace, a night flight on the London Eye and a very cold boat trip on the River Thames.
These children are now in Year 6 but we have the opportunity to take part in this visit again.
The dates are: Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th February 2014.
If you would like your child to attend, please complete the slip on the letter that children in Year 5
brought home last week.
