Dear Year 5
Welcome back I hope you have had a relaxing summer break. I am looking forward to teaching you this year – we have lots of fun ahead (including a trip to Robin Wood)!
Our first topic will be Conservation and we will be reading The Great Kapok Tree and Running Wild. We will be exploring Rainforests around the world and what is happening to them, as well as building on our Geographical skills as we go.
We will also be looking at animals and their environments in Science to coincide with our topic. We will begin with place value, addition and subtraction in Maths. Please ensure you have been practising your times tables over the summer!
Homework will be set on Friday and due in the following Friday, this will consist of weekly spellings, Maths, Literacy, and topic-based activities.
I hope that you enjoyed the reading challenge over summer I am keen to see if anyone has managed to complete it. I have given it a go and look forward to sharing my summer reading with you.
