Welcome to Year 5
Miss Howard and Mrs Okon work in Year 5.
This half term we will continue to look tenths, hundredths and thousandths using resources to support our understanding. We will also look at money and negative numbers. Within these topics we will also focus on measure.
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.
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.
Our challenge question this half term is ‘How did trade shape and develop Georgian Society?’. 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 focusing on developing our ‘working scientifically’ skills and we will be leading the Science fair. We will learn different experiments and explain the Science behind them to the other classes in school.
