Welcome to Pentire.
Our new topic is 'Stargazers' and we will be learning all about Earth and space as well as exploring the effect of different forces. Our immersive experience will be a visit from 'Neil Armstrong' and the children will get to try a variety of experiments as well as tasting space food!
Our class book is 'The Girl of Ink and Stars'. During whole class reading lessons, it is a delight to see how engrossed the children are in the plot and how their developing comprehension skills are enabling them to summarise the plot, make predictions about what might happen next and develop their growing vocabulary.  Please ensure your child reads 5 times a week and record this in their reading record.  Reading records will be checked on a weekly basis and the amount of times read will be recorded.
Across the curriculum this term, Year 5 continue to build on their excellent progress in all subjects and it is a pleasure to see how they are enthusiastic to learn knew knowledge and skills which they readily share with their peers. Regularly, we have fantastic whole class discussions and the children are keen to contribute by drawing upon both what they have learned at school and what they have learned at home.

Updates of progress can be seen on our Facebook and Twitter pages.


Friday is PE: Children to come to school dressed in PE kit and trainers until further notice.
