Welcome to Year 5 with Mr C Mahy
Welcome to Year 5 in the Spring term with myself, Mr Mahy and our HLTA, Mrs McKinnon. We have some exciting things coming up which I know the children will enjoy. Our topic is all about the history of flight including flight's role in the Battle of Britain. To bring this to life we are going to visit RAF Cosford and investigate the Battle of Britain and possibly sit in the cockpit of a Jaguar Jet. In science we will be researching the planets in our solar system and how light travel from these to us. In ICT we will be looking at how to stay safe using social media and we will be starting to program using scratch.
As a reminder all children are responsible for getting their homework done. Spelling homework will be given out by Mrs McKinnon on a Thursday morning after explaining the rule that they follow. They must be learnt and the activity completed and handed in by the following Thursday when the children will be tested on them. Maths homework, which will usually be a recap of the weeks learning will be on Education City and will be published on a Thursday, to be completed by the following Monday.
Correctly labelled PE kit is needed for Tuesday afternoons and Friday mornings. It may be worth leaving it in school for the week incase we get an opportunity to do some extra outdoor activities.
Year 5 is an excellent year as long as everyone in it tries their hardest.
