Welcome to Year 5!
This term, our topic will be “Groovy Greeks”. In this topic, children will learn about the Ancient Greeks and the impact they had on modern-day society. We will be having lots of exciting opportunities including creating mosaics, battles and even our own Olympics!
In maths, year 5 will be learning about shape and measurement. Children will learn properties of both 2-D and 3-D shapes as well as identifying their angles, area and perimeter. In measurement, the children will learn to convert between various lengths, capacity and weight. As always we will go to great lengths to ensure your child achieves the very best in mathematics. Please ensure that your child continues to practise their times tables up to 12x12.
In English, children will improve their skills as authors by writing their own persuasive texts and play scripts whilst also developing their oracy skills by debating. We will continue to expose children to a wide range of texts, including the Ancient Greek Odysseus. As part of SPaG (Spelling Punctuation and Grammar) we will be having a focus on cohesion, semi-colons and punctuating clauses within sentences. Spellings will continue to be given out as part of the children’s homework and we encourage children to focus on learning their Year 5 spellings before moving to Year 6.
Thank you for your continued support.
