Here’s what we’ll be covering in Year 5 over the academic year
In English we will be putting a twist on some traditional fairy tales. This unit ties in with our class story: The Day I Fell Into A Fairytale. In addition, we will be writing explanation texts which will also tie into this book.
In maths we will be taking a first look at decimals for this year and exploring how we can link calculating with whole numbers and fractions to how we can calculate with decimals. We then spend time exploring the many dimensions (pun intended) of shape.
You can help your children succeed by encouraging them to use TT Rockstars daily.
Topics that we will be covering across the half-term
Science – looking at reversible and irreversible changes and how we can separate materials from each other
Art – sculptures
RE – What would Jesus do?
Computing – databases
D and T – this is our first week of pizzas – in this unit (which runs into the summer term too), we learn about cooking, plan and make our own pizzas, design our own packaging for them and create spreadsheets for our pizza making businesses – feel free to do some pizza making at home to help your children prepare for this unit
We have swimming on Tuesday and PE on a Friday
Swimming still carries on every Tuesday. Any extra time your child can spend in the pool will greatly help develop their confidence.
On Friday afternoons, we will be learning the skills of bench ball and netball.
Homework will be posted on ClassDojo.
The expectation continues to be that each child reads three times per week at home and practises their times tables on TT Rockstars.
Spellings should also be practised at least three times per week – we will be sending separate spelling sheets home so that parents have their own copy.
Optional topic homework is also available and all homework is posted weekly.
