This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing in class this year.
Welcome to Term 3
This will be a very busy term and there is a lot to cram in! We will have a fabulous “Wow” day on Jan 5th where we will kick-start our topic on natural disasters and environmental change by undertaking a group ‘research and present’ challenge. The children will work together choosing an area to work on and will independently use the internet and library to present what they have found out through IT, art, DT and any other means they would like!
Our topic this term is a Geography based topic: “What makes the Earth angry?” We will be learning about the structure of the Earth, natural disasters relevant to today’s world and environmental change.
In English this term we will be looking at a story set in the eruption of Vesuvius. We will be learning how to research information and write information texts, instructions and a balanced argument.
In Maths in we are going to be revisiting written skills and calculations then working on adding, subtracting, multipliying and dividing fractions and problem solving. Times tables knowledge is a must if children are to understand the Year 5 objectives quickly therefore we will be continuing the weekly times tables challenge. Please encourage your children to play on the Maths Prodigy and Times Tables Rockstar websites – those children playing regularly are making excellent progress in their quick recall of vital number facts. Their login details are in the front of their yellow reading record books.
Our Science this term is “Forces”. The class will be investigating how gravity, air and water resistance and friction affect objects. They will also learn how to represent balanced and unbalanced forces in diagrams.
