Welcome to Year 5
The penultimate year at Dines Green Community Academy takes children on an exciting journey. As well as English and Maths following the National Curriculum, the children will cover many exciting and new topics. Our topic in Autumn is 'Past' which will have a History focus. In Spring, the topic is 'Present', looking at Geography and the world around us. In Summer, we will be looking at 'Future' which is Science led and the children will also be looking at the impact we have on our environment and how it will impact their future.
We have lots of amazing learning opportunities to look forward to and all of us our looking forward to seeing what we can achieve this year.
All of us are here for your child and if you need to contact us please don't hesitate to message us on Class Dojo, catch up with us after school or email the office.
Autumn - Past
We will start History by focusing on the Ancient Greeks, followed by a local history study before half term.
PE: PE is on Tuesdays. Please can children wear their PE kit to school on these days. As the weather turns cooler, children can wear black tracksuit bottoms or plain black leggings.
Homework: Given out on Friday and due in on the following Wednesday. The focus will be on spelling and times tables. There is also a weekly spelling assignment on Spelling Shed and children are encouraged to use TTRockstars. The children have their log in details in their homework books.
Reading: Reading is extremely important and helps the children in all areas of their learning. We encourage the children to read everyday and their reading records will be checked regularly.
