Term 1

Route 66

This term, we are learning about North American mountains, rivers and cultures. In particular, we are going to have some fun with food! The children will get a chance to produce a three-course meal, which will be thoroughly enjoyed by all in Y5! Keep looking at our class page for photos of our learning!

40 book challenge!


Are you ready for the reading challenge this year? We have got a fantastic selection of books - from the Harry Potter collection to Michael Morpurgo! Children can choose the book they would like and read as part of their daily reading at home and in school. Once they have completed the book, the teacher will record this. The child who has collected the most amount of points will receive a prize at the end of the year! Below is a link to our 40 book challenge. So come on! Let's get reading!
