Year 5

Update for Week beginning : 20.3.2017

Year 5 had a fantastic Science week. They showed great enthusiasm and knowledge during the trip to Bournemouth School. This was an exciting experience for all!

Sadly we have not been able to arrange the museum trip for this half term, however, we are postponing and will aim to go to the museum during our next project. It is an opportunity not to be missed!


English and Maths information:

In English, Year 5 have been set the challenge to create and pitch a film script to a director over the next 4 weeks. This week they have been writing a short summary of their film to go on the back of their portfolios. They have done well to make these sound exciting.

In Maths for the next few weeks we are starting to convert fractions from decimals to percentages. We will aim to look at how the three can relate to each other and applying this to problem solving.

Other curriculum news:

Our new project this half term is History and Art based and is called ‘Stone Age to Iron Age’. We are excited to ‘dig’ deep into the pre-historic era.

We have had some brilliant cave paintings and elaborate caves created as a result of the project home work. They look fantastic.

General Information:

PE will continue to be on a Tuesday and Wednesday this half term, with outdoor PE being on a Tuesday. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit and trainers in school.
