Year 5

Year 5 Picasso Class

Teachers: Miss Dunn and Miss Sanchez
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Huby and Miss Johnstone

We are Upper Juniors!

This term Picasso are going science crazy!  Our topic is Space and our mission, if we choose to accept it, will be to explore the universe!  We’ll be investigating our solar system & how it works, life cycles of stars, the history of space travels and vehicles not to mention a (virtual) visit to the International Space Station.

Our art and DT are linked closely to the topic.  We’re going to explore different media and the textures they make to re-create planet surfaces and nebulas.  Later in the term we will be building city of the future which we will use as a setting in our sci-fi writing.

Through our English lesson we will be exploring the genre of Science-Fiction.  We look forward to letting the children’s imaginations run loose and reading some of their amazing writing later in the term.

Maths this term includes exploring the relationship between multiplication and division, long multiplication and long division.  The children will also be looking more closely at fractions.

We will be continuing our materials and their properties unit in science which has lots of really fun, hands on tasks.

Later in the term we are hoping to visit an observatory and for a start gazing session.

We are also lucky enough to receive specialist PE sessions from Charlton Athletic.  They are looking at how fitness affects us and how to live a healthy lifestyle.

We are looking forward to an exciting term.

Our long term plan can be found here.
