Welcome to Year 5


Hello and welcome to the autumn term in year 5!

This is a very different term for Year 5. Children who are learning from home can access daily lessons posted on Twitter and complete activities in their work-packs. You can share your work via email, Twitter or Dojos. We are still using Friday as Topic day, so make sure you check out the school website/Twitter – we all love topic Fridays! Those children learning in school do the same activities.

The BBC Bitesize website is a fun way to access all the aspects of work that we are covering in school. This will be free to access from mobiles from the end of January. The BBC are also providing daily TV programs that are both fun and educational. Any additional reading is always a good idea (Reading Plus and First News are great ideas to access at home). Plus TT Rockstars and Top Marks Maths are great fun websites to access.

We are very excited to be holding a two week special focus on Earth and Space, linked to Science Week. All lessons will be geared around the theme and we are sure it will be a big hit!

Our English focus will be grammatical features. To link with our topic work we will be reading French Confection as a class novel. We will be studying The Pied Piper poem and reading Darkness of Dragons, which is a great continuation of the story. Macbeth will be our Shakespeare study and offers a chance to use music in our English lessons.

Maths this term has a focus on handling data and of course fractions, decimals and percentages. It is a 100% certainty that this is a topic includes many different aspects of maths work that we have already covered.

In Science we will be studying ‘Life Cycles and Reproduction’ and Materials.
We will also be finding out about famous scientists in this field.

Our Geography Topic this term is our European Neighbours. This is very topical at the moment and we will be following current events, as well as looking and the human and physical features of the continent that we live in. Our Art unit on Leonardo da Vinci links to this study.

In RE lessons we are looking at the ’Jewish Worship and Community’ and ‘The Easter Story’.
