OUR CLASS GUIDELINES
This is an example of one of our knowledge organisers. Knowledge organisers are a summary of key facts, vocabulary and essential information that the children need for each unit of work. Please feel free to print them out and encourage your child to consolidate their learning. All the units are listed below.
In Science we will investigate forces, specifically focusing on gravity, air and water resistance and the effects of friction among others.
In our first topic of the year, will be 'Exploring Ukraine', comparing both capital cities (London and Kyiv) based on their human and physical geography.

At Caldershaw we know how important reading is: not only to enable us to find out about the world and research specific topics, but (most importantly) in giving life long pleasure. Please read a book every night and record it in your reading record (remember: all books count). A few pages will do, but make sure you understand what you've read!
Remember, reading 5 times per week means you'll be entered into our weekly Milkshake draw!
Below are a selections of books we recommend children in year 5 read.
