Dear children, parents and carers,
Welcome back to school! We hope you had a lovely Half Term Break.
We have lots of interesting topics to cover in Year 5. This last half term we will be covering the following: -
Calculating with whole numbers and decimals;
2D and 3D shapes,
division with remainders and
problem solving involving multiplication and division.
Please continue to support your children with learning/securing their times table knowledge through Times Table Rockstars.
This half term we will be consolidating this year's topics and looking at "What is a fair test?"
French – En Classe
Months of the year, how to say when your birthday is, how to say the date in French and making a French calendar.
The Tempest by William Shakespeare
In this unit the children will be describing characters, looking at dialogue and writing and performing a play script.
We will also be singing songs from BBC Teach ‘The Tempest.’
We will also be looking at poetry, towards the end of the term.
Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read for at least 20 minutes each day. In Year 5, we would like children to write comments in their Reading Records to keep track of the books they have read, whether they would recommend them to a friend and if they enjoyed the text.
We will be looking at Antoni Gaudi’s neo gothic architecture in the 19th century, street art from artists such as Banksy and Keith Haring, including wall art and graffiti, and abstract sculptures of humans using different materials with Antony Gormley.
What does it mean to be a Muslim today; core beliefs of Islam.
