Important Information

PE days

5A and 5B- Thursday and Friday*

Please ensure your child comes to school in their P.E. kit. 

*Swimming will take place in the Spring and Summer Term 



Children will bring their spellings and x tables home, on a piece of paper. We ask that the spelling homework sheet is returned, but not the x table sheet. 

- Times Tables: Children will have a personal times tables test each Wednesday based on an in-class assessment

- Spelling: Each Thursday, the children will have a spelling test based on the words from the Year 5 spelling curriculum. An additional word from the Year 3-4 spelling list will also be included each week.

- Reading: Children will be expected to read regularly at home. We ask that you support your child's reading by listening to them read at least 3 times a week. All children will be given a reading book and reading diary from our school scheme. Children will bring in their reading diary every Monday, with entries written in. Reading books can be changed on a Monday or when completed.

Year 5 celebrated British Science Week on Friday by linking our knowledge of space and designing creatures with adaptations that would allow them to thrive on the harsh world of Mars. 

January 2022- To see if they had what it took to become an astronaut, for the learning launch of our Spring Term 1 Project, To Infinity and Beyond, the Year 5 children participated in space training.

December 2021- As part of our Design Technology work, the children took part in a bridge building workshop. The children were then able to use the skills and knowledge they had learnt, in the classroom, to create their own smaller version.

November 2021- The Year 5 children created their own poppy to commemorate those that have fought and lost their lives in war. The children decorated their poppies with words linked to Remembrance Day.

October- As part of our project work, the children were visited by Will, from the Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project. He taught the children information about chalk streams and then, using a classification key, the children identified a number of creatures that live in them.

October- As part of Lincolnshire Day and our Rivers Project, the Year 5 children went on a walk around Louth to follow the journey of the River Lud.

September 2021- For the learning launch of our project, 'Go With The Flow' the children worked in teams to design and create their own boat. The children then tested their boats in a paddling pool and winners were announced in 3 categories: most stable, most aesthetically pleasing and fastest boat! The children had a great time!
