Welcome to Year 5
Miss Pearson & Mrs Sharman
Welcome back! We hope you had a great summer!
Here is what you have to look forward to during Autumn term in Year 5.
In English, we will be exploring the book ‘Who Let the Gods Out?' by Maz Evans. 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 Autumn 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 ‘Ancient Greece’ in history. We will be exploring exactly who were the Ancient Greeks and why they are so well known, how the ruling systems in Ancient Greece changed, understanding how our knowledge of the past is constructed from a range of sources, how to make connections, draw contrasts, analyse trends, frame historically-valid questions and create our own structured accounts, including written narratives and analyses of the Battle of Marathon.
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.
