Welcome to Penguins & Puffins
Welcome back! We 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 will be visiting Parliament and will be taking part in Dance and Invasion games during PE.
We are looking forward to working closely with parents this year. We will have some Yr5 virtual and in person assemblies throughout the year alongside book looks so you can see the great learning your children are doing. Please try to keep up to date with Marvellous Me messages.
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.
Wishing you and your children a great first term in Year 5!
Miss Beattie and Mrs Lewis
