Year 5

Welcome to Summer 2!
We will be looking at sequences with decimals, multiplying and dividing decimals by 10, 100 and 1000. They will revisit their 2d and 3d shape knowledge from Year 4, build on this to look at angles within a shape and predicting the size of angles based on previous knowledge. We will deepen our understanding of converting measurements from mm – cm – m – km applying this into real life contexts.
We will diving head first into newspaper writing. We will be exploring and unpicking newspaper reports from London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games, in order for children to write their own. Grammar/ vocabulary will be explored through all aspects of English and the wider curriculum.
Other Faiths: In this unit, children will learn what the Church teaches about
other faiths, know some important Jewish beliefs and understand some important practices of Muslims
In this unit children will have compared and grouped together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility,
transparency, response to magnets and electrical and thermal conductivity. They will have given reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular use of everyday materials, including metals, wood
and plastic.
This term, Year 5 will be investigating the history of the Olympic Games, identifying key historical and sporting moments, and how they changed from the 1st Olympics games over 3000 years ago. We will investigate where in the world each team is located, comparing countries and flags. In addition, we will also look at what the 5 rings mean and if they are still relevant in today’s Games.. 

PE will be on WEDNESDAY. However, this may change some weeks, so it is important that all kits are in school, ready for the lesson.

If you have any questions or need to see me, please do not hesitate to make an appointment.
