Summer Term

Topic: Our World

Welcome to the Summer term. You are now experienced Year 5 pupils and I’m looking forward to all the progress we’re going to make together this term!

So what’s in store? 

In History we will be learning all about the Mayan culture and the contrasts we can make with British culture.

In Geography: we will cover human geography in a region of the UK. We will look at land use, economic activity, distribution of natural resources and energy use changes over time.

In Science we will be learning all about the properties and changes of materials. I’m sure we’ll have fun completing different types of experiments!

In Maths we will cover a range of topics including decimals, properties of shapes, measurement and converting units of measure.

In English we will be reading the Paperbag Prince by Colin Thompson and The Hunter by Paul Geraghty. We will cover a range of different writing including persuasive leaflets and letters.

During our reading lessons we will be reading Pollution: a look behind the scenes and African Tales: a barefoot collection.

Reading

As always, reading is the cornerstone of all learning. We recommend reading a wide range of texts both at home and at school, this includes your child’s school reading book and their own personal reading books. Whilst lots of our children will, by now, be reading independently, it is still vitally important that you listen to your child read. We expect children to be reading daily. Please make sure that you are listening to your child read and recording this in their reading record. Children can record their own reading in their record, but an adult needs to sign this to confirm that they have read. I will check the reading diaries and children will collect points towards prizes! 

PE

PE will be on Monday and Wednesday afternoons this term (outdoors weather permitting/where ever possible)—so please make sure that you have the correct school PE kit in school. Trainers are only necessary for PE lessons/break times if needed, all other times, school shoes should be worn please.

Uniform

Correct uniform should be worn at all times please. This is a school jumper/cardigan, or one in a similar colour, a white polo neck top, grey skirt, shorts or trousers and black shoes (not trainers). For PE, this is a white top, white or black shorts and trainers or pumps. Jogging bottoms or leggings can be brought in for colder weather, but please try to make sure they are black or white. Please ensure all uniform and water bottles are named, and that water bottles are taken home and cleaned daily.

Homework

Learning Log homework and Maths will continue to be given out on a Friday and should be returned on a Wednesday.

Twitter

We regularly update the school's Twitter feed with what our Year 5 class get up to. Please check out our tweets, follow us, and give us a like!

 

We look forward to seeing you all soon, any questions please ask.
