WELCOME TO Year 5'S PAGE
The children have had a fabulous start to the year and have settled in really well.
We won't be doing weekly spelling tests in Year 5, but spelling 'sounds' will be sent home after we have learned them in school (this won't always be weekly). There is more information about spelling below.
Children have been given a log in to 'EdShed' in the first few weeks as well as their TTRS/Numbots log in and they should use these platforms regularly at home. These can be found in their reading diaries
Check this page regularly to see photos of our learning and for the latest homework and curriculum information.
Our P.E. days this half term are Mondays and Thursdays. We will need outdoor kits for Thursday's sessions. Monday's sessions will be gymnastics this half term and Thursday's sessions will be with Colchester United. Make sure your P.E. kits are in school on these days. It would be best for earrings to be taken out at home to minimise the risk of them getting lost, but please make sure the children can take their own earrings out if this can't be done at home.

Science - How do we know the Earth is not flat? 31st Oct 2021 - 12 images
Year 5 learned about why, throughout history, some people believed the Earth was flat and some people believed it was curved. We learned about Aristotle observing how ships disappear over the horizon. We tried this out for ourselves using a toy car moving on a flat table and compared this to it moving around a ball.
