Please find below some links to recommended texts. We have a wide variety of texts in our classroom library and our whole school library, which the children are able to borrow and enjoy at school and home.

We are learning all about properties and changes of materials in Science.
We have carried out a range of different experiments to show that we can make predictions and take measurements with increasing accuracy. We are developing our knowledge about changes of state and dissolving.
Here’s a photo of our most recent Science investigation, where we explored reversible changes:
Please find below a document with interesting facts all about the ancient Maya. There are also some suggested activities for the children to complete to enhance their learning. There will be opportunities for the children to share their research and project work in class.
Ancient Maya Overview Home Learning
The children have been busy over the half-term completing Space related research tasks.
Thank you to the girls for sharing their creative creations with their classmates!
Thanks to Melissa for her cupcake creations. This was a lovely surprise for her classmates. They were out of this world!
The children are full of enthusiasm about their Space related Topic work this term. There have been lots of books shared and posters created at home so far. I look forward to sharing the children’s class learning with families this summer term and seeing the independent research and tasks completed at home.

Y5CG look forward to next week’s Sport session!
Y5CG worked together and showed great teamwork to solve a number of Maths puzzles. It was great fun and reminded the children of just how important perseverance and resilience is!
North America – U.S.A Learning Update
This spring term, we have been exploring all about the continent of North America and what makes the U.S.A so special.
We have been learning all about how the U.S.A is part of the continent, North America. We have produced fantastic art work, using Jasper Johns as our inspiration.
Very soon, we will be completing tasks which look at the U.SA in more detail and we will go on a ‘road trip’ and visit Disneyland to complete some Topic Maths. Check our website soon for more photos of the children’s learning tasks.
Here’s a photo of the children sequencing events from America’s history, using their knowledge of timelines and showing mathematical thinking to solve number clues.
