Welcome back to Edward Pauling for the first Autumn term! Starting a new school year is very exciting and we look forward to a memorable and outstanding start to Year 5!
During this half term, we will use the Power of Reading book ‘Seasons of Splendour’ to look at the different cultures and traditions of a foreign country and how its myths relate to the thoughts and feelings of people today. The pupils will use these stories to develop their own writing skills in class. A key focus will be creating pieces of writing that are well structured and use logical connectives as well as a wide range of devices to build and maintain cohesion across paragraphs.
In Numeracy, the pupils will study addition and subtraction of four digit numbers and understand the relevance of place value within these operations. The pupils will also investigate decimals and the rounding of decimal numbers.
In Humanities, the pupils will study the history and culture of India. They will study how the geographical area, now known as India, has changed over thousands of years. We will also compare the similarities and differences between the history of India and the history of the British Isles.
Science lessons will focus on the phenomenon and application of Forces. The pupils will learn about the different types of forces and how they are present within alleveryday activities. We will also look at key figures within the historical story of forces.
As a reminder, homework will continue to go online every Wednesday and it is to be completed by the following Monday. Children are also expected to bring in appropriate PE attire every Wednesday.
Keep an eye on the school’s website for updates and ‘Wow Work’.
If you have any questions, please feel free to speak to a member of the Year 5 team.
We look forward to an excellent Autumn term!
WE LOVE SCHOOL!
