Year 5 - Mrs Rossiter

Welcome to Year 5!

We're really looking forward to the Spring term, where we will be embarking on a journey to outer space - "To Infinity and Beyond!". We will be exploring the history of space travel, important people and the development of technology and safety equipment. As well as learning important information and statistics about the planets, we will be considering the science of space and how it effects many things such as our seasons, the night sky and gravity. As the weird and wonderful aspects of space has inspired many, we will also be using our learning as a stimulus to create pieces of artwork, music and dance. Please see the Curriculum tab below for further information and the Homework tab to view this term's Topic Takeaway homework.

Important information 

For this half term, PE will be on a Thursday and Friday though please try to have PE kits in school everyday. Mrs McCurdy will be teaching the class each Thursday morning.


Homework is distributed on a Friday and is to be returned by the following Wednesday. If your child needs another homework sheet for any reason, spares can be found in the homework tray in the classroom. 

We will have weekly spelling and times tables tests, so please keep practising. Accelerated reader quizzes will be checked on a Friday morning and we expect that the children should have read at least 3 times a week.

After we learned about the first landing on the moon, we wrote news scripts and used iMovie to record us presenting them over the top of a video clip. Click the videos below to listen!

To celebrate Safer Internet Day, we decided to make a video to parents to teach them the importance of online safety. We spent a whole week researching various aspects of eSafety and writing a balanced argument before selecting parts of each other's work to transform into the video. We will be entering our video into the LitFilmFest competition.

Year 5 Masters of the Digiverse!
