Miss Hartford is the teacher in Year 5. 

There are many exciting, engaging and awe inspiring lessons in Year 5 this term. Our English will be based around the texts, Way Home and The adventures of Odysseus; we will be writing in a range of styles and aiming to improve our language selections and punctuation. We will be expressing our writing through: diaries, letters, speeches, play scripts and incorporating drama in to the lessons. 

We have made a great start on our Humanities topic based around the Indus Valley. Did you know that they date back to the Egyptian era, but they were only recently discovered in 1920? Many facts about this civilisation is not known, for example, we do not know what language they spoke. Why not research more and find out facts about the Indus Valley Civilisation. 

Our science has covered life cycles (Autumn 1) and we are now taking a journey in to outer space and learning about the planets, sun and moon phases.  

There are some fantastic homework ideas to do each half term too based around all curriculum areas. Take a picture and send it to the Year5 email, then we can share your great work as a class.
