Welcome to Year 5
Teacher: Mrs Cain
Learning Assistant: Mrs Underhill
Our class text for this term is Holes by Louis Sachar. When Stanley's bad luck unfairly lands him in the juvenile detention centre Camp Green Lake (a very weird place that isn't green and doesn't have a lake), he and his campmates are forced to dig holes in order to "build character"... But what are they really digging for?
We will be continuing to consolidate our learning of the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be focusing on a new topic: Fractions, Decimals and Percentages.
Our RE topics for Spring Term are: Christmas, Baptism, Lent and Holy Week. Children will also have the opportunity to plan and lead a whole class collective worship session each week.
Our topic for this term is The Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. We will be taking a look at what Anglo-Saxon Britain was like, who the Anglo-Saxon Kings were, Danegeld, life as a Viking, the Anglo-Saxon justice system and much more!
Our Science topic for this term is Properties and Changes of Materials. We will be learning about the properties of materials, creating electrical circuits, exploring dissolving, how to separate mixtures and irreversible changes.
PE will take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays - please remember to bring in your PE kits!
