WELCOME TO YEAR 5!

  

 

 

 What are Year 5 learning in Summer?

 

Writing 

After two fantastic weeks of swimming at the Aquatics Centre the children have been inspired to write biographies about British swimmers. They will be diving into the lives of different swimmers from open water swimmers, olympians and paralympians! 

After that they will be using their imagination to write their own fairytales based on Grimm Brother’s classic tales. 

Great readers become great writers, so make sure you are reading inspiring texts to spark your imagination and expose you to new vocabulary to use in your writing. 

 

Maths

This term Year 5 will be learning measurement and volume. Children will be using lots of different strategies and methods of understanding, through using concrete resources, pictorial representations and abstract equations. You could do even more work at home by measuring the capacity of containers around the house or measuring furniture for rooms etc. 

As with any maths unit having secure foundations such as times table knowledge and number bonds will ensure our mathematicians are confident and successful throughout the year - daily practise on BBC bitesize, Mathletics and Times Tables Rock Stars will support this.

Reading 

This term the children will be focussing on working collaboratively in reciprocal reading groups where the children will have rich discussions about a range of texts both fiction and non fiction texts. 

Please remember to read for 10 minutes every day with an adult and complete your R@Homebook every week.

 

Science

Our scientists will be learning all about Living things and habitats - Animals including Humans. They will continue to develop their scientific skills by asking questions, making observations and drawing conclusions.

 

PE

This is starting with a very exciting two weeks in the pool at the Aquatics Centre in Stratford. Then indoor lessons with the class teacher the children will be learning how to play team sports and develop their communication, leadership and teamwork skills through tag rugby. Towards the end of the term we will be preparing for sports day and practising and competing in a range of track and field events.

Good daily habits such as a balanced nutritious diet, regular exercise and getting enough sleep will support their health and fitness. Getting active together and involving your child in food preparation is beneficial for the whole family!

Our mini chefs will be involved in learning about nutrition and cooking nutritious healthy meals and snacks as part of a short DT unit at the end of term.

 

JIGSAW

This term the topics within Jigsaw are Relationships and Changing Me where they will explore the themes of friendships and how to maintain healthy relationships with peers and how to accept and understand the changes that they will be experiencing themselves.

 

Geography

To finish off the year we will be looking at biomes and the 7 different types and what thrives in these geographical locations. We will be doing this through the key skills of locational and place knowledge, human and physical geography and geographical skills and fieldwork

 

Art

Children will be exploring drawing and painting this term where they will choose a style of drawing, select media and use a range of techniques for a specific purpose. They will also be able to select a range of techniques to show movement, perspective, shadows and reflection. We will be learning this through exploration and creativity.
