Year 5 - Owls and Foxes
Summer Term 2021
Welcome back! We hope you had a restful Easter Break and are ready to start what hopes to be an exciting term! Please note the following information needed to make this term as successful as possible:
This half term our topic is our Year 5 Presentation! We consolidate our Arts, Drama & History skills and will be putting on a show. We have chosen a musical called ‘We’ll Meet Again’ which links into our History topic earlier in the year relating to the Second World War. This funny yet touching story portrays the evacuation of children to the countryside during World War II. Year 5 children will sing, act (possibly dance) in what we hope will be a great way to let their creative juices flow. More information will follow as the term progresses.
We are very happy that we also get to cover a very interesting topic in Science this half term – Space! Children will adopt their scientific (and astronaut) minds to discover what happens beyond our humble planet.
Year 5 P.E. days are on Mondays & Tuesdays. Your child must come to school in their P.E. kit on these days. Failure to have it is likely to result in them not being able to participate in the lesson. In addition, children will not be able to participate if they do not have the correct P.E. kit. Please see the school website for more information on the P.E. kit requirements. If your child has their ears pierced, they will be required to either take out the earrings or cover them with tape for the lesson. Please remember Cooks Spinney only allows small stud earrings in school.
As you may be aware, Cooks Spinney has adopted an online homework policy. Your child’s Mathletics homework will be set weekly along with EdShed spellings. We do encourage children to read with an adult at least 3 times per week to build up their vocabulary and comprehension skills. Children will be given a reading book from our class library.
Any queries please do not hesitate to ask one of the Year 5 team.
