In Dali, the Class Teacher is Miss Brimble with the support of Mrs Bradford-Parnell. 5 Gaudi's Class Teacher is Miss Conroy with the support of Mrs Rose. During the course of Year 5 we will continue to build on the children's independence and resilience skills and also move their learning forward by using our growth mindsets.
You will find our curriculum information further down the page!
What are we learning this term?
During the Spring term, our theme is 'To Infinity and Beyond', where we will be immersing ourselves in all things outer space! This will include learning about how aspects such as the rotation of the Earth impact on our daily life, hosting debates about the moon landing, a trip to the Space Centre as well as some surprises along the way!
World Book Day

On Thursday, it was world book day.
The children brought in their favourite books and we had quite a range - from Harry Potter, to non-fiction books about animals, to Jacqueline Wilson books. During the day, we met with our twinned classes to share our favourite books and read with some younger children. This was a lovely experience!
In the afternoon, we learnt that the way to get the most enjoyment out of reading is by discussing the books which we read. We had the chance to sit together in groups and share new books together. Some of us were surprised to find that we enjoyed reading texts we wouldn't usually choose, such as poetry.

Helping at Home
In Year 5, the children are set weekly spellings on a Monday which are tested on a Friday; on Thursday we also set an additional piece of home learning which is due on a Tuesday- this term we will be focusing particularly on our timestables.
In addition to this, please continue to support your child with their reading by regularly reading to them, listening to them read and asking them questions about their reading.
Although many children read fluently and independently at this age, in order to build higher level comprehension skills it is important that children are given the opportunity to discuss what they have read.
