Year 5

Welcome to Penguins & Puffins

Welcome to the new school year! ​Spring term ... 

We hope you have all had a ​great first term and Christmas break and are well-rested ready for an exciting term.

This term our topic is ‘​Destination: Outer Space!’ and we will be looking at Space and our planet.  Our book will be ​Harriet and the Galaxy, a story of a young deaf girl who explores different planets.  In Science, we will be finding all about our Solar system and in Geography we will be learning about the capital cities and countries of Europe.  We will use this information to create reports about space in Writing.

The children should be reading and practising their spellings each evening.  Homework and new spellings will be put on Seesaw/ handed out on Mondays. 

We 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 use the class emails so that we can work together.

We are excited to get started!

Miss Beattie and Mrs Lewis


These books are read as class texts over the course of the year to encourage positive and guided discussion of the protected characteristics. At Westfield, we strive to create an environment where children can share their opinions and ask questions
