Year 5

Autumn

In Year 5, we have read the book ‘A Boy and a Bear in a Boat’ by Dave Shelton. We created a recipe for our very own unique sandwich! Through this book, we explored the seas and oceans and created a presentation in geography and computing. We also learnt about forces in science, with many practical activities to help us learn about gravity and pulleys. We are currently reading ‘Shackleton’s Journey’ by William Grill. This shares Shackleton’s journey to Antarctica, through which we will be learning about climate zones and longitude and latitude in geography. We will also learn about different water colour techniques to create a wonderful piece of artwork showcasing different sea creatures. We have learnt place value, statistics and addition and subtraction in mathematics. We are also very excited about our rock heroes on TT Rockstars to help us practise our times tables.

 

Spring

In Year 5, we are reading ‘Runaway Robot’ by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. We have created diary entries and a newspaper report! Through this book, we explored the history of robotics and disabilities. We wrote a biography about inspirational people! Next half-term, we will be reading ‘Cosmic Disco’ by Grace Nicholls. This shares an impressive galaxy of poems, through which we will be learning about Earth and Space in science. We continue to focus on arithmetic and problem solving in mathematics and have also learnt how to calculate area and perimeter and fractions. We are also very excited about our rock heroes on TT Rockstars to help us practise our times tables.

Summer

In Year 5, we are reading ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’ by Michelle Magorian. We have written postcards and diary entries and will also write a setting description. Through this book, we will be exploring lots of aspects about World War II, including learning about Judaism in Religious Education. We even recreated our very own evacuation day! In Science and PSHE, we are learning about how humans change from babies into adults. In Mathematics, we have learnt all about fractions, decimals and percentages. Throughout the rest of the term, we will learn about measurements and shapes. We are also still very excited about our rock heroes on TT Rockstars to help us practise our times tables.
