Year 5N 2019 - 2020

Miss Nuttall


Summer 2


Welcome back to our final half term of the year!


In English this half term, we will begin our term by reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, investigating settings, character development, dialogue and narrative style. We will then move onto using texts about electronic equipment to introduce features of a non- chronological report. And finally, ending the year with a persuasive text, analysing adverts and political speeches using, focussing on modal verbs.


In Maths, we will start by ordering and comparing decimal numbers, and then the children will use this skill and apply it to problem solving activities, including the use of percentages and decimals. We will then move onto analysing data from graphs. This will be followed by an assessment week which will give the children an opportunity to show off what they have learnt. Finally, we will focus on metric and imperial units.


For our Science Unit, Year Five will continue to explore properties of materials. I won’t give too much away, but expect tales of Alien soup, magic custard and ways you can keep you cup of tea or coffee warmer for longer.


For R.E. Year 5 will explore multi- cultural Christianity. During this unit, we will talk and think about the first Christians and the spread of Christianity. The children will be given a simple introduction to understanding Christianity as a Multi-cultural and worldwide faith. Some key questions we will be investigating are: How has the story of Jesus been spread around the world?Why didn’t the first Christians give up when telling the story was so hard?Why does Jesus look different in all the pictures?

Why does the artwork reflect the culture?

In what way does the artwork reflect the culture?


Our topic work will move towards History, by investigating the big question ‘what impact did the Anglo- Saxons have?’ In this unit, the children will explore the world of the Anglo-Saxons, and why they came to Britain. This will be followed up with our trip to Yorvik which we are all really excited about!


In Computing Year 5 will be architects. We will research examples of art gallery architecture, before creating their own virtual gallery. Art moves on to looking at silk painting and the skills needed to produce such artwork. DT will begin with a new project on alarms.
