Year 5 2018
Welcome back, I hope you all enjoyed the half term break. We are now in the second half of the spring term and in Year 5, we are preparing ourselves for the transition to Year 6 and beyond.
Our theme Let’s Go Wild continues this half term and we will be focusing on Art, History and Science. For an in depth overview of what we will be covering, please see the Medium Term Plan saved at the bottom of the class page.
Our English key text will be 'The Maze Runner' and this half term we will be focusing on using dialogue, describing characters and settings in detail and starting to work with higher level punctuation such as: colons, semi-colons and dashes for parenthesis.
In Maths, our first focus is fractions, decimals and percentages which will again highlight the importance of times tables within the maths curriculum. If your child has not achieved their calculator yet then they need to set themselves a target of gaining this during this term.
