Year 5

Week Beginning 28.09.2020

Welcome to the new Year 5! We’re both very excited to get started and to get to know you all better as we learn together in Year 5!
English and Maths:
Next week in English we are going to be thinking about ‘Things I would like my teacher to know about me’ and completing some independent writing. We will also be beginning to explore descriptive writing and using the photographic technique for focused description.  Our class book is ‘Boy in the Tower’ by Polly Ho-Yen and  we’re looking forward to getting our teeth into a gripping story of science fiction.
In Maths, we are looking at place value and comparing and ordering numbers up to 100,000 to give ourselves a really solid foundation in Year 5 maths.
Other curriculum news:
We will be beginning our new project, ‘Music through Time’ looking at music styles across the ages. In RE, we are beginning to explore the concept of belonging and how it fits into the religion of Islam.
E-safety this half term will focus on the importance of passwords and keeping our information safe online.
Important information:
Please come in PE kit all day on Friday 2nd October.
Any questions, please do send us an email – Team 5 are looking forward to a fantastic year together.
