Year 5 'Class Pledge'


In year 5 we respect our environment and each other to create a space where we can thrive. We work together as a class to be the best versions of ourselves and we persevere to tell the truth be honest with all that we do. We endeavour to keep a positive attitude with all of our hearts and promise to care for one another at all times.


Term 1

It is lovely to finally be up and running in year 5 and we have an exciting term ahead of us. Having had time to settle back in to school life after what has been a very unusual period of time, we have begun to make a start on our learning. In English, we will be focusing our attention towards the book 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers. We will be exploring what it is to exist in the world that we live in and using a range of techniques such as poetry and narrative to explore our thoughts and feelings on this matter. Furthermore, in maths we will be looking at place value and the value that a digit has in a number as well as decimal and negative numbers. This will be a perfect opportunity to the children to refine and rediscover their love of number, setting them up with a solid foundation for the year ahead.

​​​​​​Our world can be a bewildering place, especially if you've only just got here. Your head will be filled with questions, so this text allows the children to explore what makes our planet and how we live on it.
