Year 5: Eagles

Welcome back.  I hope you had an enjoyable Christmas and are looking forward to the Spring Term.  We have so many exciting things planned for this term and our topic is called May The Force Be With You!  It is a science based topic, however we are interweaving English and Art too!  We will be using a film narrative of E.T to stimulate our writing, learning how to create atmosphere and tension.   Linking with our work in Science, we will create explanation texts about the Solar System, exploring and learning about how we get day and night and describe the movement of the moon relative to the earth.  We will also look at Forces, in particular how gravity affects us and identify the effect of drag forces on objects.


If you have any questions or queries regarding school issues then please do not hesitate to contact me. Many thanks for your continued support.

P.E days:

Monday - Gymnastics

Friday - Swimming


To promote healthy eating and to ensure your child stays alert, we recommend that they eat a piece of fresh fruit at break time and a suitable water bottle (clear) is available to use throughout the school day.  Please note that children should only be drinking water.


Please make sure your child brings their P.E kits into school on a Monday and they will bring it home to be washed on a Friday. If your child has earrings please remember that they must be removed. Long hair should also be tied back. Games lessons will take place outside whenever possible. Please provide suitable clothing for this lesson, i.e. trainers, tracksuit bottoms (or equivalent), spare socks and a warm top. We will be taking part in the Daily Mile and we will be running for 15 minutes 3x a week—it is important that your child has a spare pair of socks!
