Dear Parents/Carers,


We would just like to thank yourselves and the children for another fantastic school year and hope you are all ready for a well-earned rest over the summer holidays. In preparation for the next academic year, we ask you to support the children over the summer to complete the following activities, so that they feel prepared for September.  

Our topic focus for the first term is Intrepid Explorers, where our main focus will be on the Mayan Civilisation and the Rainforest. 


Summer Activities: 

  • Visit your local library or choose a book from home to read 3 times per week

  • Research an animal that lives within the Amazon rainforest or why not even visit Tropical World or Yorkshire Wildlife Park?

  • Download Switch Zoo and create your own animal

  • Timetables practice 3 times per week – securing knowledge of this is fundamental to most mathematical concepts

  • Write a short story about a journey you have taken in the holiday.


Recommended Reading:

  • Kensuke's Kingdom - Michael Morpurgo

  • The Lost Rainforest – Eliot Schrefer

  • Unfolding Journey's Amazon Adventure – Lonely planet kids.

  • Rainforest Rough Guide – Paul Mason


Yours sincerely,

The Year 5 Team
