Welcome to Year 5!

Year 5 Autumn 1 – Connections Topic Overview

What an amazing first week! The children have absolutely blown us away with their enthusiasm and hard work this week and we are so very excited to spend this academic year working with them all. 

Tomorrow, the children will be bringing home a paper copy of our Knowledge Organiser and Topic Web for this half term but we have attached a copy on the above link for you too. We are learning all about… SPACE! You can read about this half term’s learning for each subject and also practise some of the Space facts with your child using this document. Can the children already remember the order of the planets in our solar system? Why not have a competition to see whether you or your child can learn them the quickest?

We also have an exciting trip coming up – to the Winchester Science Centre! Please let your child’s class teacher know if you may be able to help on the day of the trip – Thursday 21st October. We will need a small handful of DBS cleared adults and so will select names at random should lots of adults put their name forward. 

Here’s to a fantastic half term and a brilliant year!
