Welcome to Year 5!

Good afternoon!

I hope you have all had lovely summers.  Welcome to Year 5!  I have really enjoyed getting to know the children this week.  We have been reviewing place value in Maths and grammar in Literacy.  The children have had fun creating a rainforest tree for our Rainforest topic and creating rainforest musical compositions.

We will start our Talk4Writing unit on Monday, which will be adventure stories.  The children will be using Michael Morpurgo’s ‘Running Wild’ as their class book.  To link to this, they will be also be exploring artwork by Henri Rousseau.

Homework packs have been sent out this evening (also available on the website), along with the first week’s spellings which will be tested next Friday.  Please note that the Homework pack refers to TT Rockstars, however, TT Rockstars will be replaced with Mathletics this year – further details of this will be sent out in due course.

I hope you have a good weekend!
Warmest wishes,
Mrs Hunter
