Welcome to Penguins
Welcome back! I hope that you all had a restful and relaxing summer holiday!
Year 5 is going to be the busiest year yet at Westfield! We have lots of work to do to prepare our children for in the coming year. It is vital that all children are supported to complete their reading, times tables and spellings daily at home, in addition to their weekly Maths and English homework.
Our topic this term is ‘The Victorious Victorians!’ We will be learning about how the Victorians lived, their inventions, Victorian artists and a focus will be given to scientists from that era too! In Science we will be looking at animals including humans and their habitats. In addition to our academic work, we have an exciting trip to Parliament in September to support our learning of British Values.
We are looking forward to working closely with parents this year. We have class assemblies, as well as meetings and workshops.
I look forward to working with you and your children during this academic year. If you have any concerns or worries about anything at all, please come and chat to me, so that we can work together to resolve the problem.
Wishing you and your children a great first term in Year 5!
