Spring learning

We have an exciting term ahead for us in our Units of Learning! This half term our units will be Rumble in the Rainforest where we will learn all about the layers of the rainforest and the threats to rainforests. In Science we are going to be learning about living things and how they reproduce. 


Year 5 will also be doing Bikeablity (Richards - 18th and 19th March,  Barber - 29th and

30th March) so make sure you have a bike and helmet (or one you can borrow).



 We are focussing on number skills, reading fluency and writing so it is essential that you keep your homework going to support your school learning! Use the app links above (particularly Lexia as it is new for a lot of us) and keep reading three times a week and update your home-learning diary. Remember, it can be as colourful and as unique as you like! Please remember to complete your CGP homework books weekly and remember to bring them back into school on Thursday. Keep practising your spellings each week ready for Friday.
