Welcome to Year 5
Miss Pearson & Mrs Sharman
Here is what you have to look forward to this term:
In English, we will be exploring the book ‘Holes' by Louis Sachar. We will be discussing extracts, role playing scenes, creating concept maps, forming opinions and points of view, making character descriptions and planning and writing our own stories.
During the term, we will also be writing biographies and auto biographies, as well as studying instructions and explanations.
We will be covering a range of topics in Maths this term, such as: Place Value, Addition & Subtraction, Multiplication & Division, Perimeter & Area and Statistics. We will be practising our fluency but also delving deeper in our understanding and knowledge of these topics, applying our knowledge to a range of problems and puzzles.
This term, we are studying ‘Vikings and Anglo Saxons’. We will be exploring exactly who they were and why they are so well known, the trials and tribulations of Vikings and Anglo Saxon Kings, as well as the Viking invasion. We will also be looking at European Settlements and what makes a good settlement.
Pupils will continue to return home each day with a reading book which must be read every school night. This needs to be signed by a parent or guardian to show you have read.
Occasionally, a book review will need to be completed so that we can ensure and your child can fully show their comprehension of the text they are reading.
