Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 - Mrs Garland's Class






Spring Term


This term our topic is Oceans. Using Mantle of the Expert, a dramatic inquiry based approach, the class have been able to explore different aspects of underwater life. 


Since half term we have been focusing on climate change and the devastating effect it is having on our oceans. Please take the time to talk about this at home with your children. Wider reading is always encouraged, it's lovely when the children bring in work they have done at home. 






Please can P.E. kit be in school at all times. PE times may change according to the weather or availability of the hall. 


Children are asked to complete twice weekly sessions on Bug Club and RMeasimaths. Login information was sent home at the start of term. We are currently reviewing our homework policy and welcome any thoughts on the matter.  


In Year 5 we try to encourage children to stand on their own two feet. Year 6 is fast approaching and we want children to have the skills they need for their transition to high school. As such, they are no longer accompanied to the gate after school each day. We also encourage children to do small things like pack their own bag for school each day and sort their own P.E. kit etc. Please support your child in building their independence by encouraging this at home.
