Welcome back everybody and welcome to Year 5! What an incredible start to the new academic year we have had. It’s great to have everybody back in and the atmosphere around school is electric. We do hope you managed to have a brilliant break over the summer and managed to recharge your batteries. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to Year 5! The classes have made a fantastic start to the year and have settled into our classroom routines brilliantly. We have really enjoyed getting to know the children so far, and together we know we can make this year an exciting and successful one. We are really looking forward to the year we have ahead of us, and we can’t wait to begin exploring the topics we have lined up for the year with the class.
Our teaching assistants, Mrs Hurst and Mrs Turner will work alongside us in the classroom on a daily basis supporting your child’s learning. The children we will be working very closely across the classes throughout the year, coming together in the afternoon, at times, for some subjects. Mrs Turner and Mrs Fothergill will teach Year 5 on a Thursday afternoon and will deliver RE, Music and French.
The curriculum letter, which can be seen below, will inform you of what we will be covering in class during the first half of the Autumn Term. Our topic this half-term is ‘What was so revolutionary about the Industrial Revolution?’ and much of our work throughout the different subjects will relate to this. Below is also a copy of our curriculum map for the academic year 2023-2024.
If you have any queries, concerns, or simply a question, please don't hesitate to call or email us or any member of the senior leadership team. We will be more than happy to help! You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
