This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing in class this year.
Summer has arrived and we are in our last term of Year 5! This term will be another fun-packed term including trips to Pfizer and Ash Heritage Centre, Sports Week, Victorian dress up day, Sports Day and a disco!
In Literacy this term we will be looking at the book “Street Child” which will transport us to Victorian times. We shall be writing a biography of Queen Victoria, researching into the lives of rich and poor Victorian children and diary writing. There will be a Victorian dress up ‘school day’ where we will experience a school day as it was in Victorian times! More details about that will follow.
In Maths in we are going to be working on angles, measures and calculations then working on: co ordinates, reflection, translation, measures and volume. The Times Tables Challenge will continue – by Year 6 it is essential that times tables knowledge and fluency are in place for children to be able to acess the Y6 curriculum with confidence.
The children all have access now to ‘Maths Prodigy’ and ‘Timestables Rockstars’ online platforms. Their login details are written down in the front of their reading record books. Please encourage them to play on these sites regularly – they are fun ways of learning and practising maths skills!
