WELCOME TO YEAR 5!
To all parents, carers and children in Year 5
We hope you enjoyed the summer holidays and are ready for Term 1. We are certainly very excited about the new term and that you are ready to work hard.
This year the children will learn a number of new skills across the Year 5 curriculum. To support their learning in class keep these skills fresh by visiting Mathletics, practising times tables and practising writing by keeping a diary, writing shopping lists or short stories (we would love to read these!)
We have a very busy term ahead; here is just some of what we will be up to. In Maths we will be covering place value. In English, we will be celebrating Roald Dahl for the week commencing 11th September by reading some extracts of his work and writing in the style of Roald Dahl. We will be learning about HTMLs and writing our own web pages in Computing. This term in Science we will be exploring Earth and Space. Why not see if you can spot the Moon each day or night. What do you notice?
Children should start back at school in full school uniform and have their PE kit in school at all times. Please also remember that any girls wearing tights need to bring in a spare pair of socks to change into for PE. This is in line with the school handbook.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Mrs Mobbs and Miss Howling.

Week Beginning 11th September
Wow! What a great full first week.
This week we watched the Roald Dahl event live, where we learnt how to draw like Quentin Blake and heard an extract from Roald Dahl's new book Billy and the Minpins. We have continued learning about place value in maths and in our E-Safety lesson we learnt what makes a good password. Click on the link above to see if your password is secure.
Have a wonderful weekend and keep reading!
First Week Back
We have had a great start to Year 5. It is wonderful to see that the children are all so enthusiastic and ready to learn.
In maths, children have been using discs to help them solve place value problems. In Science, we have had a discussion about whether there is life somewhere else in space. The children have some fantastic ideas, which I am sure they would love to share.
Next week is Roald Dahl week.
What will we be looking at in Year 5 this year?
The jigsaw below clearly shows the areas we will be covering in Year 5 at Kingsnorth CEP School this year! Please take a look at this- particularly for Literacy and Maths, any support you could give your child in these areas would be greatly appreciated!
