WELCOME TO YEAR 5
Welcome back after the Easter holidays, we hope you enjoyed the break and got to eat lots of chocolate!!
This term, we are really excited about the upcoming Jubilee Celebrations and looking forward to spending more time on the field playing rounders!
We are hoping for some glorious sunshine—so please ensure children bring water bottles and sunscreen and hat (with name) when appropriate.
We will be attending Young Voices on 20th May 2022 and we have a fun end of year treat planned!
Children will bring home their spelling and additional homework every week. This is due back on every Friday. Please ensure children read at home regularly and practise their spellings daily.
Throughout this term we are reading Holes by Louis Sacher in our ’Reading for Meaning’ sessions. We will be developing our grammar skills and will write a variety of genres, including persuasion and narrative.
We are going to be deepening our understanding of fractions and beginning to learn about geometry and time. If your child isn’t confident at telling the time, please could you spend some time teaching this at home.
Please remember to learn all the Multiplication facts-this will help you in all areas of Mathematics!
Children will also have maths homework each week and they should continue to log in to TTRockstars each day.
We are really looking forward to learning about Plants and Living Things. We are going to be looking at how plants reproduce, the different types of plants and their different parts. We are then going to be learning about animals—including their lifecycles, and sorting different categories of animals and insects.
We will be exploring the Industrial Revolution. We are going to be learning about how England changed during this time —including the transport and trade. We will also be learning about how life was for different people. We are also learning about a day in the life in a cotton mill and child labour.
