Welcome to the Year 5 page! The children in this class are taught by Mr Killick, and ably supported by Mrs Rogers and Mrs Hollingsworth!
Our main aim is for each child to achieve his/her full potential, both academically, and in the development of their character and personal attributes.
In literacy lessons, we will be looking at a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts, and the children will learn how to write in a range of different styles and for different purposes. This term will focus on recounts, particularly biograhies and diary entries.
In Maths we will be covering the main strands in the national curriculum: number and place value; addition and subtraction; multiplication and division; fractions, decimals and percentages; measurement; properties of shape; position and direction; and statistics. This will mainly involve area and perimeter, decimals, word problems, fractions and time.
Our topic for this half-term is 'Inspirational People!' Topic lessons will cover the curriculum requirements for history (People in history, Black History month), art (popart and Andy Warhol) and RE (Judaism). Science will also be covered through our Topic work. We will be learning about how to set up, carry out and analyse a fair scientific investigation, as well as looking at forces and friction. We will also be learning about famous scientists.
PE and Modern Foreign Languages will be taught discretely.
A few things worth noting:
PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has his/her full PE kit on these days.
Homework should be handed in by Tuesday morning each week.
Your child will have the opportunity to change their home reading book on a regular basis.
Our termly intervention is focussed on spelling. There will be regular spellings to practice and patterns to learn.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.
