Year 5N 2019 - 2020
Welcome back, we hope you have had a lovely break.
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 on to look 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.
For 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.
Our topic work will move towards Geography, by investigating the big question ‘How is our country changing?’
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.
May I remind you that although Year 5 are scheduled to have indoor P.E. on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and swimming on a Tuesday and Friday, kit should be in school at all times in case on any last minute changes.
If you have any questions please ask one of the Year 5 team.
