Welcome back Year 5 to our final half term of the year!
In Literacy, the class Power of Reading Book, ‘Floodland’, will aid pupils in their understanding of creating rich, detailed and extended paragraphs with a variety of sentence structures. They will also learn how to integrate dialogue effectively into narratives. Pupils will also focus on securing and deepening their knowledge of all the teaching points that have been covered throughout the year.
In Numeracy, pupils will develop their understanding of shape reflection and translation across grids, focusing on specific movements in the first quadrant. Later on, pupils will focus on their understanding of angles. They will do this by estimating angles on a straight line and a 360 degree turn. Pupils will also measure angles and be able to classify them on sight.
In Humanities, pupils will study the phenomena of climate change and how it is affecting our world. They will focus on what climate change is, what is causing it, how it can be prevented and what organisations are focusing on helping to reduce the impact of climate change. Pupils will do this by writing a variety of text types with a focus on the taught skills they have learnt in literacy.
In Science, pupils will study the idea of Earth and Space. Through this, they will develop their understanding of the movement of Earth and other planets in relation to the Sun. Pupils will also have the opportunity to explore how day and night occur and will plan investigations which explore the effect the movement of the Earth has on this. They will explore how the position of the Sun, Moon and Earth affects concepts such as tides.
As a reminder, homework will continue to go online every Wednesday - to be completed by the following Monday. Pupils are also expected to bring in appropriate PE attire every Wednesday.
Please also keep an eye on the school’s website for updates and ‘Wow Work’.
