Welcome to Year 5!

Our teachers in year 5 this year are Mrs Dad, Mrs McGee and Mrs Radomska. We are very excited about what we have got coming up in Year 5! We will be starting with learning all about the Victorians. We will be linking this to most of our subjects: we will be making Victorian sponge cakes for our afternoon tea party, investigating and analysing historical artefacts and we will experience the life of a Victorian child through role play too.

Any books about the Victorians would be very welcome for display and to share with the class, but please remember to put your name in them.  In Maths, Year 5 will be concentrating on securing our number knowledge and building on the number skills learnt in Year 4. At the start of the term, we will be comparing and ordering numbers, learning about powers of 10 whilst always practising the four different calculation operations of addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.

Our Science topic this half term is Earth and Space. Throughout the half term we will be carrying out some practical investigations. In Art, Year 5 will be focussing on the work of Lowry and industrial landscapes, relating to our topic of the Victorians. Year 5 will also continue to build on their language learning in French and will start the year by learning about different greetings (Bonjour!), expressing their feelings and speaking about animals.

Each week Year 5 will have two PE lessons a week. Across the year, Year 5 will learn a variety of games, whilst also having gym and dance lessons.  Please make sure that you are always fully equipped for your PE lessons with trainers, tracksuits and indoor kit.
