This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing in class this year.
Welcome to Term 6
Summer is here and Year 5 are looking forward to their final term learning all about the Victorians.
Kent Test Information
Registration for the Kent Test is open. More information here:
DGSB ALSO have their own test:
In Literacy this term we will be looking at researching the lives of the Victorians with a focus on the story of “Street Child” by Berlie Doherty. We will be writing character descriptions and settings, looking at the changes in the English language over time and researching homes and beliefs.
In Maths in we are going to be revisiting written skills and calculations then working on: angles, shape and space and measure. The Times Tables Challenge will continue – all the class are becoming more fluent in their times tables knowledge which is having a really positive effect on their ability to problem -solve and reason with numbers. At this stage Y5 children should know ALL times tables up to 12s fluently and inside out!
Our Science this term is “investigations”. As a class we will be filling any ‘gaps’ from lockdown and planning our own investigations using the outdoors as much as possible. We will be pond dipping, tree identification and habitats amongst other things!
As always – if you have any worries or concerns about your child please phone, visit or send in a note.
