year5


In Year Five, we are focusing on measure at the moment in Maths; at home, children can practice learning the capacity of various household items. We will soon increase our knowledge of fractions, decimals and percentages, as well as consolidating number (the four operations) regularly.

Literacy has seen our imaginations inspired, as we are exploring the narrative poem, The Highwayman. We will soon be learning about the genre of recounts. In reading, we will continue our reciprocal reading whilst also building upon our comprehension skills.

In Science, we are learning about physical processes in our ‘Properties and Changes of Materials’ unit. This will involve many experiments, as we increase our investigation skills!

Our Spring topic, ‘Chocolate’, is extremely exciting – from the history of chocolate way back in Aztec times, to the design and creation of our own bars in DT – this unit will culminate in a trip to Cadbury World!

In PE, we welcome the Spring weather with our tennis unit, inspired by the Great British teams.

For homework, we will continue our classroom learning outside of school, and expect the children of Year Five to be reading regularly with an adult too.
