Year 5F 2020 - 2021
Welcome back everyone! Team 5 are all looking forward to another great half term :)
In R.E. we will be exploring proverbs. We will be discussing the value of wisdom and reading about the wisdom of Solomon. Later on in the term we will be moving onto Christmas: The Gospels of Matthew and Luke. We will be looking at these Gospels and their perspective of the nativity story as well as deepening our understanding of the true meaning of Christmas.
In English, we will begin the term by looking at travel writing, focusing our attention on relative clauses. We will then look at the narrative text, Goth Girl and end our term with the poetry unit, The Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carroll.
In Maths, we will be looking at division facts. We will learn how to use short division and using our knowledge of times tables to help us. We will then move onto negative numbers in their real life contexts!
Our science unit will cover Earth and Space for this half term. The topic will include the movement of the celestial bodies within our solar system and the impact this has on the planets. Linking with this, we will be focusing on songs all about our Solar System to further our knowledge on this topic!
Our History topic will explore the world of the Maya, and especially why most of the Maya seemed to die out around 900 ad.
In D&T, we will be exploring musical instruments. We will then move on to planning and making our own.
In Computing, we are looking at the unit of ‘We are cryptographers’ looking at different methods of code and understanding their uses. We will be working to crack the codes and design our own!
May I remind you that although Year 5 are scheduled to have indoor P.E. on a Tuesday and Wednesday and outdoor P.E. on a Friday, kit should be in school at all times in case on any last minute changes.
Homework is due in on Thursdays and please try to read with your child as often as you can!
Any questions, please ask one of the Year 5 Team :)
