Year 5

<back to classes

Welcome to Year 5 (Autumn Term)

During the first half of the autumn term year 5 will be learning about a range of exciting and interesting new things. We will be delving back in to the past to learn about World War II, including a trip to The Imperial War Museum where we will have the opportunity to look at many engaging exhibits and artefacts. In English we will be covering persuasive speeches, diary writing and poetry. Our maths focus will be on place value before moving on to addition and subtraction.

Our science work will investigate whether all animals start life as an egg and in our ICT lessons we will be exploring what it means ‘to be cryptographers’ where we will have the chance to learn the basics of Semaphore, Morse Code and Caesar Cipher coding systems.

We will be creating an art display in the hall, which will showcase the children’s knowledge of the pointillism painting style, inspired by Paul Signac. Our RE lessons will allow the children to explore why some people believe that God exists.

Homework will be given out on a Thursday and should be returned on the following Tuesday. Please ensure that your child is practising their spellings at home. Home School Planners are expected to be signed daily. PE will be on a Thursday, therefore an appropriate PE kit will be required.

Please visit the class blog to stay up to date with all the fun learning that we do.

If you have any concerns, then do not hesitate to contact us. We are always happy to help resolve any issues you may have.

Miss C Smith and Miss H Smith.
