Year 5D


We have a busy year planned. I'm looking forward to teaching the children some exciting topics and seeing them "Shine Like Stars" throughout the year!

In 5D, we have P.E. on a Monday and Wednesday, please ensure the children have a complete kit.

Our book for this half term is "Jack and the Baked Beanstalk" by Colin Stimpson.

This half term, our topic is Ancient Egypt and already the children are excited to learn more about mummies and Pharaohs! We'll be singing songs, making death masks and hopefully taking a trip to Bolton to find some artefacts in the museum.

Mrs Crossan will be teaching the children French this year and we've started learning the alphabet in French.

Reading books need to be in school every day so we can listen to the children read in school. Please sign your children's book as often as possible. Log ins for Bug Club and TTRockstars are printed in the children's reading diaries.


A piece of home learning will be sent home on a Thursday and this is to be handed in for the following Wednesday.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!
