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 but slightly shorter term and there is a lot to cram in! We will have a fabulous “wow” day on Jan 7th where we will kick-start our topic on natural disasters and environmental change by designing and testing towers in an earthquake situation.
Our topic this term is “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.
We designed Mayan clay tiles in January 2019
