This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing in class this year.
Welcome to Term 4!
How the year is flying by! Term 4 will once again be a short one but there is plenty to pack in.
Our topic this term is “Divorced, beheaded or died?”. We will be learning about when the Tudors lived, how religion changed under Henry VIII, their Kings and Queens, their buildings, food, art and stories.
In Literacy this term we will be looking at researching the lives of the Tudors: their Kings and Queens, Henry VIII and his wives and life in Tudor times. We shall write biographies, recipes, diaries and letters.
In Maths in we are going to be revisiting written skills and calculations then working on, adding, subtracting, multipliying and dividing fractions, reasoning and problem solving. The popular Times Tables Challenge will continue – ALL the children are getting more fluent in their knowledge of times tables which is essential for accessing the Y5 Maths curriculum! If your child does not yet know all their times tables, encourage them to practise little and often using sites such as: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button, Maths Prodigy and Times Tables Rockstars
Our Science this term is “Animals including Humans”. This topic covers the Human timeline, the growth of babies, puberty and how humans change into old age. If you have any questions about the details of this unit of work please come and see me or contact me via email/phone. It would be useful for you to have a chat with your child about puberty before we cover this in class so there are no shocks! Also your child may have some questions for you at home!
We designed Mayan clay tiles in January 2019
