Year 5 - Aldenham

Welcome to Year 5


Our Teacher is Miss Fitzgerald

Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Hilton


After a busy start to the year, we have made it to half term! Aldenham have been hard at work so far this term, from creating models of the phases of the moon, to writing, designing and creating their own adverts for their Wild and Wacky inventions, ready for the dragons to judge in their den.

We have finished reading Holes in our reading workshop lessons, and all agreed that watching the film adaptation would be a great way to spend our well deserved golden time, so we could discuss all of the similarities and differences between the two versions!

We have looked deeper into Ancient Egypt, where children have discovered a wide range of things, including the exact steps needed to mummify a body and the importance of the Nile.

After the half term, children will be looking at creating their own free verse poetry in English, and doing some work on place value and addition and subtraction in the millions.

Children need to complete their homework and TTRockstars work for every Wednesday and have 5 signatures in their reading diaries by every Thursday.

Children will no longer be allowed pencil cases at their tables after half term. If they wish to bring a pencil case to school it must remain in their draws.


Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.
