The Year 5 Team
Mrs L Williams
English in year 5 will begin by looking at fiction through The Lost Happy Endings by Carol Ann Duffy. We will use the book to develop story maps, construct newspaper reports and write our own fairytale style story. We will also look at Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo in our Reading lessons, the book is set during World War 2 and we hope to visit the Imperial War Museum in Salford to further our knowledge of the topic.
During the first half term the children will be taught the key aspects of place value, addition, subtraction and multiplication. This moves on to multiples, factors and prime numbers after the half term. We will use a wide range of puzzles and problems to deepen the children’s understanding of number.
In Science we will be discovering all about Earth and Space and creating art work, posters, factfiles and reports about the Solar System and other interesting facts.
This term we are really looking forward to many learning opportunities! Our topic this term is all about the Industrial Revolution and we will be discovering L.S. Lowry’s art work to demonstrate industrial Britain and what it looked like.
This half term PE will focus on Basketball with Mrs Dickinson. PE lessons will be on a Monday afternoon for 5P and Tuesday afternoon for 5R. After half term the focus of PE will move to football and Mrs Dickinson will teach the key aspects of passing, dribbling, shooting and team work to the children.
