Year 5 2018
Welcome to Year 5!
We hope you have had a wonderful summer break and are feeling rested and ready for a new school year.
This half term we will be using the book ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar for our narrative as well as looking at Non-Chronological reports. We will be building our bank of descriptive vocabulary and learning how to use different sentence types and clauses to help our work flow and provide good information for the reader.
We will be starting the half term with place value, reading, writing and ordering numbers up to 1,000,000. We will also continue to look at formal written calculation methods for all four operations as well as looking at data in line graphs and times tables in statistics work. Our Maths work will link to our class text, Holes, as we think about what is hidden within Camp Green Lake.
Our whole school theme for this half-term is ‘Buried Treasure’. In Year 5 we will be focusing on our Geography skills and learning all about North and South America including tourism, human and physical features. We will be developing our scientific enquiry skills by learning about life cycles and the water cycle. In our History work we will be examining sources of evidence linking to our story.
Thank you for your continuing support,
Miss Smith, Miss Howard and Mrs Burrows
