Autumn term 1 homework grid
WELCOME TO 5HM!
I am super excited to start another year off with such a jam packed term!
We dive straight into swimming with our first session being on Tues 10th September, so we will need swimming kits in school on this day. We have 10 weeks of lessons so there is lots of opportunities to improve skills and build confidence.
Our PE day is Friday but it is always good to have kits in school at all times in case spontaneity strikes.
We begin our Linked Learning topic of Tomb Raiders, focusing on the Ancient Egyptians which is a fantastic opportunity for the children to explore the history and geography of Egypt, as well as the lifestyles of the people living there at the time. We combine Art and Design into the unit by creating sarcophagus and cam mechanism mummies.
Our first Science unit is Living Things, where the children explore the life cycles of plants and consolidate the build on the learning which they have had in Year 3 and 4. We then move onto Space in Term 2 which sees the children looking into the night’s skies and creating their own versions of that very famous mnemonic.
We shall keep you up to date with important dates throughout the term, but if you need anything then please do not hesitate to get in touch with either myself of Mrs Hobbs on the playground at the end of the school day.
Here’s to another great year!
