Year 5. 2018 - 2019
Welcome to Year 5!
Welcome back Year 5! We are now in Spring term- a busy term with lots of exciting things to look forward to!
During the term ahead, our topic will be Anglo Saxons and Vikings!
We will be learning about Britain's settlement by the Anglo Saxons, and the Viking and Anglo Saxon struggle for the Kingdom of England.
In English, we will be looking at a range of texts including The Hunter by Paul Geraghty and The Darkest dark by Chris Hadfield. During these units, we will be looking at fiction writing and biographies!
Our Maths learning begins this term with formal methods of multiplication and division. Later in the term, we will be learning about fractions, decimals and percentages.
Our focus will again be teaching for mastery using concrete, pictorial and abstract approach to learning to secure fluency and reasoning skills.
In RE this term we will be learning about Inspirational People, what it means to be a follower of Jesus and to know what it means to be a saint.
In the second half of the term we look at Reconciliation, understanding that actions have consequences, and the meaning of sin.
At home there are many different ways in which you can support your child with their learning this year. Each week, the homework books will have details of reinforcement activities that can be completed in the CGP revision books. There are also the Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars apps that the children are warmly invited to use as regularly as possible. Children should also continue to read every night and to have their reading logged in their reading record each time.
You are always welcome to chat with myself after school, or to make an appointment.
As always, thank you for your continued support.
