Welcome to Year 5.
In Year 5 we embrace the principles of: quality, quantity and perseverance to ensure we can achieve our absolute best and prepare ourselves for the next stage of our learning.
Our topic for terms 3 will be continuing with learning about the Egyptians, with an exciting visit planned to Uplands Community College to meet Esmerelda, their resident mummy. In term 4 we will be looking at the Britain’s settlement by Anglo-Saxons and Scots exploring Anglo-Saxon art, place names and to explore why the Anglo-Saxons and the Scots invaded Britain.
Our science work involves us looking at Forces and this term. To help with our understanding about these topics we will be: investigating, researching and testing how to create the best parachutes and also learning about water resistance and friction.
In Maths we will be looking at: multiplication, division, decimals, fractions and percentages. There will be a fluency, reasoning and problem solving approach to mathematics where children will be able to apply and practise the skills they have learned.
Reading will also be an integral part of the Year 5 English curriculum including daily guided reading sessions and class shared text and children are encouraged to ‘Read for Pleasure’ by reading at home and in our inviting book corner!
PE, this term will be: gymnastics with children exploring movement and challenging themselves with different jumps, rolls and vaults. Additionally, in term 4 we will be having our two day residential to Carroty Wood.
Homework helps consolidate learning, in class, and it can also help to introduce new topics. In Year 5, homework will be set each Friday and be expected to be returned the following Wednesday. The homework will have mostly have a maths and English focus, with spellings and grammar forming part of the English homework. In Year 5 the expectation is to read each day with Year 5 reading records returned each Friday.
