Welcome to year 5!

The Great, the Bold and the Brave

The first topic for the year is The Great, the Bold and the Brave where we will learn about the ancient Romans and Greeks.  We hope to confirm a trip to an ancient Roman villa during this term and many History, Music and Art lessons will be themed on the Roman and Greek topic this term.  In Computing we will be exploring gaming and writing games using coding.

English

In English, we will be broadening our vocabulary, looking at powerful verbs and looking at new genres of writing. We will also be writing persuasive letters, exploring myths and developing figurative writing techniques.

Maths

In maths this term, we will be Learn about Roman numerals, exploring place value in 5 digit numbers, developing addition, multiplication, subtraction and division strategies and working on our arithmetic skills using a range of strategies.

Science

Forces is our science topic this term and we will learn all about friction, gravity and resistance.  We will be conducting experiments, making predictions and recording our findings.  We will also be learning about a famous scientist who contributed to the field of force.

 As usual, we will be offering the children a full curriculum with PE, Art, History, Geography, French, RE and PHSE.

Trips and Workshops

During this term we are planning on taking the children to Lullingstone Roman Villa to see how Romans lived in 100AD. The children will get to see real life Roman mosaics and artifacts which will be fantastic as they can compare the real article to their own mosaics that they have made, which is currently on display in the classroom and hallway.

Homework

Homework will be sent out on Thursday and should be returned to school on Tuesday. The homework menu allows children to choose which homework they would like to do each week based on what subject interests them the most.  Please date the menu to show which homework has been completed each week.

Reading Records are to be in school every day whether your child has read or not, this is so we can record any comments that we may have during Guided Reading sessions. Reading books may be changed daily if the Reading Records have been signed by an adult to show a book has been read. All Reading Records are checked on regularly to ensure that children are reading at home.
