Cedar Class Year 5

Welcome to Cedar Class
What's in the Stars?
Spring Term
This term we are learning about space and forces through the theme 'What's in the Stars?'
Cedar class have an observatory with the solar system right above their heads!
During our English lessons, we will be exploring texts which will transport the children to another world, igniting their imagination and thirsts for adventure. Cosmic and The Skies Above My Eyes will help frame writing opportunities and link learning across the curriculum. 
Our Science focus this term will center around the Earth and Space and Forces and the way that they impact our lives today.
In our Art lessons, we will be using our digital media and sculpting skills to create our own version of a Space Rover poster and during Design and Technology, we will be thinking about the construction of a brand new Space Rover.
Key Information
Cedar Class will continue to have 2 PE lessons per week. These will be shared via the VLE and will be the same across the school. 
Children are expected to be reading at home at least 3 times per week to support their learning. 
Children each have a spellings list in their writing folder on the VLE. They are expected to practice and learn 10 of these per week, to support their spelling and vocabulary.
Times tables
Children are encouraged to continue using TimesTableRockstars to practice their times tables each week. They will also be completing one of our 21 Facts activities each morning to support their understanding not only of their times tables, but their relationships between number facts. This will take place during registration.
