Welcome to Year 5

Miss Howard and Mrs Okon work in Year 5.

Autumn term 2

Maths

This half term we will continue to look at addition and subtraction including inverse and problem solving. We will also focus on multiplication and division, which will include factors, multiples, square and cube numbers and multiplying and dividing decimals. We will also concentrate on statistics this half term including data, graphs and tables. 

We will continue to do a lot of work on times tables and it would be great if you could encourage your child to continue this at home. www.ttrockstars.com is a fantastic website for times table games and all the children have logins.

English

This half term we will be concentrating on the text ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar in our English lessons. We will be focusing on varying our sentence openers, high quality vocabulary, relative clauses and punctuation.

In our Reading lessons, we will be exploring the story ‘Charlotte’s Web’ by E.B. White. We will be focusing on the VIPERS skills.

 

Theme

Our challenge question this half term is ‘What is the Georgian Legacy on British Culture today?’. Within this challenge question we will be developing our history skills by learning about different aspects of this time period.

In our Science lessons this half term we will be looking at forces and conducting experiments to find out the effects of different types of resistance. We will also be leading the Science fair where we will learn different experiments and explain the Science behind them to the other classes in school.
