The Lost Happy Endings: Duffy, Carol Ann, Ray, Jane:  9780747581062: Books

Our focus text this half term is a beautifully illustrated book called - 'The Lost Happy Endings'. Within the book we meet an unusual but kind character named Jub who comes across a sinister witch in a forest!

Throughout this half term, when creating your own pieces of writing, you will be practising using expanded noun phrases, creating atmosphere and developing a sense of character in your writing. You will also be integrating dialogue in your own writing and will be practising punctuating dialogue correctly.

Your final written outcome for this half term will be to write your own 'Golden Pen Story.'



The topic we will be focusing on over the next few weeks will be fractions! In Year 5, we will be exploring equivalent fractions, improper fractions, mixed numbers, comparing, ordering and adding and subtracting fractions. The objectives we will focus on throughout this topic, will build on your understanding of fractions from Year 4.

Our topic in science this half term is - Earth and Space.

Throughout this topic, we will be exploring the shape of the Earth, the planets in our Solar System, the orbit of the Earth around the Sun, and how day and night and the seasons occur. We will also be exploring the Moon's orbit around the Earth and the various phases of the Moon.



Spellings will be uploaded to our ClassDojo page every week for you to revise and learn. Please make every effort to learn these and ask an adult or older sibling to test you on these spellings every Friday. If you have any problems with accessing ClassDojo, please contact the school.



For this half term, our PE day is a Tuesday and our focus will be football.

Some of our lessons will focus on keeping you active at home.

Remember, if you are attending school at the moment, on your PE day, you should come to school wearing your PE kit for the entire day. As our PE sessions will be outside, we recommend that you wear a suitable outdoor PE kit.
