Welcome to Year Five !
Our Class Teacher is Miss Taylor and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Smith.
Your teacher's email address is: email@example.com
This term our topic is “Earth Matters” This topic will cover a range of thoughtful activities. We will explore the link between physical and mental health. In addition, we will think about how we can contribute to our local community, in particular, how we can support recycling with school. This link to community will also allow us to think more broadly about our wider world and reflect on what more we can do for our Planet.
In Science we will be exploring how living things are classified and the relationship between humans and animals. We will look at our key figure - Charles Darwin- and explore evolution and inheritance. Finally, we will explore how habitats are changing due to Climate Change.
Our whole class reading book is Holes by Louis Sachar. This fictional novel follows the young life of Stanley Yelnats, who is serving time in a juvenile detention facility: Camp Green Lake. The main themes of the novel are trust, forgiveness, determination and loyalty.
Outdoor learning every Friday
Every week we will be taking some of our lessons outside of the classroom, to embrace our superb outdoor facilities. This will take place every Friday afternoon. Please provide your children with suitable footwear (wellies) and waterproofs to enable us to go out in all weathers.
PE every Tuesday
We will be incorporating gymnastics and dance into our our bespoke routines. These routines will focus on different levels, pathways and moves. We will design our routines to a 4-beat song which will compliment and enhance the routines.

Year 5 Book Recommendations
We are book worms in year 5 and are always deeply absorbed in the stories, so much so we can't bare to put the book down at the end of a session.
Often, we recommend books to eachother, sharing them, saving them for one another. So we wanted to create a reading list of our own, here on the website that each of us can look at if we are stuck for what to read next. Here are some that have recently been recommended:
