Year 5F 2019 - 2020
Welcome Back and Happy New Year!
We will be starting 2020 off with a bang! In R.E. Year 5 will explore the lives of significant women in the Old Testament. The aim of this unit is to widen the children’s knowledge and understanding of the role and significance of women in the Bible. To reflect upon the actions of these women and consider what we can learn from their stories.
In Maths we will be continuing to look at place value, negative numbers and rounding numbers. We will then be looking at mental addition and subtraction, then moving onto looking at 3D shapes and the properties of polygons. We will also be learning about multiplication and division.
In English this half term the children will be using the classic Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, and the children will be ending this unit writing and editing their own poem. We will then move on to look at argument and debate texts, discussing the differences between fact and opinion.
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.
Our topic work will move towards Geography, by investigating the big question ‘How is our country changing?’ and In Computing, Year 5 are being coders. DT will be based around our topic of bread, and Art moves on to looking at landscapes, focusing in on the work of Eileen Downes.
Homework is due 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 :)
