Year 5 - Summer Location, Location, Location


English: This term we will be focussing on mystery stories and stories from other cultures. We will also be enjoying nonsense poetry and having a go at writing some of our own!


Maths: We will continue to look at mental and written methods of + - x and ÷. We will also be studying fractions in more detail.


Topic: We will be finding out about Earth, sun and moon including how they affect our weather! The children will have the opportunity to study countries around the world with a focus on South America. Please bring in photos from any countries you’ve visited.


There are lots of fun things happening in Year 5 this term including: a dance workshop; outdoor learning; making carnival masks and designing and making their own menu from around the world.


Homework: Check your active learn account for updates. We regularly change the homework given. You will find a selection of maths, reading and grammar activities. We will send mental maths tests home on a Monday and will do a similar test the following Monday.  We would love all children to bring in a project to show at the end of term. This can be anything to do with our topic; the more creative the better! Projects in by Wednesday 12th July please.
