Year 5 class page 2019


Welcome to year 5
Miss Howard, Mrs Winterbottom and Mrs Gilmore make up the Year 5 team.

English
This half term we will be using the book ‘Children of Winter’ by Berlie Doherty 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.


Maths 
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. It is great to see the children’s enthusiasm towards learning their times tables! Please continue to encourage them to use Times Tables Rock Stars at home.


Themes
Our whole school theme for this half-term is ‘Memories’ and our challenge question in Year 5 is ‘How did the Black Death affect society?’
We will be focusing on our history skills and learning all about The Stuarts and The Black Death. In our Science lessons this half term we will be looking at forces, and in our Art lessons will be developing our skills in painting to create a final piece.
