This term we will be learning all about the solar system.
How big is our solar system?
Is Pluto a planet?
What was the first mission to space?
Who was the first person to go to space?
How fast is the speed of light?
Is there life on Mars?
This is a very exciting topic with many questions that you will all thoroughly enjoy. We are also hoping to visit the National Space Centre in Leicester this term. This is a fantastic trip to widen their knowledge of our solar system and see some spectacular real-life space equipment.
We are reading 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell-Boyce as part of our class story. This is an exciting adventure about a boy called Liam, who is an ordinary but a VERY tall twelve-year old boy. Some people even think that he's a grown-up. This is an incredible story of how Liam told some fibs, won a trip to a theme park, made some new friends and sort of, by accident, ended up in space...
Keep checking this page regularly and we will update this page with lots of pictures and videos!
As a reminder to parents, children will be given maths and English homework each Friday. This is to be handed in by the following Friday. However, the reading homework will need to be completed for Monday in preparation for our reading lesson.
Additionally, children are expected to read daily for 15-20 minutes and/or practice spellings.
If you have any issues or concerns, please come and speak to us.
Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school each week.
5S have their PE sessions on Wednesdays.
5B have their PE sessions on Thursdays.
However, occasionally we may have extra PE during the week. Hence, it is best to leave their PE kits in for the whole week and only take it home over the weekend if needed.
