Year 5N 2019 - 2020

Miss Nuttall

Welcome back to the new school year!

We hope you had a wonderful summer holiday and you are ready for the exciting year we have planned for you, here at St Peter’s

In English, we will begin with reading classic fiction: The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. The children will explore many of his stories, including his very famous Just So.

The final project is for the children to create a Just So Story of their own. Later in the term, we will move on to our non- fiction unit of UFO recounts. The children will look at report writing, finally creating their own recount. We will finish the term looking at biographies and autobiographies.

In Maths, we will be developing our understanding of the four number operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). Some other topics we will look at are: shape, place value and money.

In Science, the children will describe the differences in the life cycles of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird, and describe the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals. The children will also have the chance to work scientifically whilst we explore these objectives.

Within our RE lessons, we will be focusing on Jesus the Teacher. We will be developing the children’s understanding parables that Jesus taught, and then we will be writing our own parables.

Our Art unit looks at developing sketching techniques, specifically Cezanne’s Still Life artwork.  In D&T, we will be exploring working mechanisms. We will then move on to planning and making our own moving toy. Our History topic will explore the world of the Maya, and especially why most of the Maya seemed to die out around 900 ad.  Computing will see us becoming cryptographers!  The French topic involves months of the year, clothing and being able to share how we are feeling.  Music will explore our community from past to present using a range of instruments.

Please make sure that you read with and sign your child's reading record. Children need thier reading books and records in each day and  homework will be sent out each friday to be returned the followng thursday.

If you have any questions please let one of the Year 5 team know :)
