Welcome to the Year 5 page for the Summer term!
In English, we will be reading the emotive and entertaining 'Who Let The Gods Out?', written by Maz Evans, to tie in with our study of the Ancient Greeks. It will give them plenty of opportunities to produce some wonderful writing, across a range of genres.
We will continue to develop our reasoning and mastery skills through the use of TARA Maths. We will explore geometry, shape and statistics, whilst continuing to study fractions, decimals, percentages and the four main operations. Please continue to support your child with their times tables at home!
This term, we will be studying Life Cycles, progressing on to Animals including Humans.
For this term, PE will take place on a Wednesday afternoon and we will be outside doing athletics, then rounders after half term. Outdoor kit will be needed. On those particularly sunny days, please ensure your child has sun cream, a cap and a water bottle in school. In addition to our weekly lesson, Year 5 children will also be taking part in ‘The Daily Mile’ where we will challenge children to move for 15 minutes each day.
Our cross-curricular topic for this term is The Ancient Greeks. Who were the Ancient Greeks? What impact did they have on the modern world? What have we learned from them? These are just some of the questions that Year 5 will be exploring.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Our warmest regards,
The Year 5 team
