Autumn is looking like a fantastic term. We have so much exciting learning ready for the children. 
 
In reading, we will be focusing on the childrens' fluency skills with our class book, The Firework Makers Daughter, which is an exciting, funny story of an adventure into the heart of a volcano! At home, please continue to ask your childre to read aloud, this really helps with their understanding as well as their fluency. 
 
In maths we will be building on the children’s number skills be practicing place value and all of the essential addition, subtraction, multiplication and division methods
 
We will be learning all about mountains and volcanoes in Geography and loving things in science. 
 
As well as all this, the children will also learn to compose their own symphony, program a volcano warning system and lots of other fun and exciting projects! 
 
PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays for Y5W and Thursday and Fridays for Y5L. If children can come to school in active clothing on these days. 
 
Bikeability will take place between September 20th - 30th - get on Squid to sign your child up!
 
We are encouraging the children to read as much as they can at home and we will be running competitions on Times Table Rockstars all term. If you need your log in please let your teacher know.
 
We cannot wait to have the children back!
