Class 5

Year 5 Summer 1st Half Term



DB Primary 

 Please use the below link to access DB Primary we will be using this platform to set weekly homework.


This half term we will be covering the topic What a Wonderful World. We will be finding out about different regions and environments around the world and how to use different types of map to find out information. We will also be finding out about local and global environmental issues and possible causes of climate change and its effects on our planet. We are going to be exploring extreme weather events and how they affect people and localities.


The children need to complete a learning log task for this topic which will be around the idea of an extreme weather event or natural event, such as tornado's, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, floods, and so on. Children need to create an information poster about the event they have researched.       


This should be completed and handed in at the latest by 17th May 2021.


Homework will be set each Friday and needs to be returned for the following Wednesday. Homework is an essential part of the curriculum and your support is appreciated.  Children who do not complete homework tasks will need to complete it in THEIR TIME in school. Spellings will also be sent home every Friday and children will tested every following Friday.



Reading books will be sent home every night. Children need to read at least 3 times a week and their reading record signed at least 3 times a week by an adult.




Ensuring P.E kit is in school on Tuesday and Thursday. P.E lessons will take place INSIDE therefore children need to come with suitable clothes for indoor P.E.
