Hello and welcome to Year 5.

Mr Quinn leads 5 Morpurgo and supported by Miss Habiba. 5 Bloom are led by Miss Rasool and supported by Miss Yilmaz. We would like to extend a warm welcome to the Year 5 team to a new member of staff Miss Messiter-Tooze, who will be supporting 5 Bloom.

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone to the summer term and our enthralling theme of Mad Science. It will be filled with practical experiments, incredible learning and a spectacular educational visit.

In this theme, we will be looking at states of matter and considering properties of materials. We are very fortunate to be working alongside our specialist Science teacher, Mrs Rabello, this term to deliver lessons whereby the students will be developing their investigation skills and taking part in fun practical experiments that will enhance their learning.

English:

Reading: During this half term, we will be exploring the world of Greek mythology. We will be looking at various myths and the recurring themes in Greek myths. In addition, the children will be exposed to both fiction and non-fiction texts during our guided reading sessions to familiarise themselves with the consistent features of each text type.

Writing: Our Science lessons will inform our writing this term. We will begin with an explanation text based on the outcomes of their experiments in class. During the second half of this term, we will be writing our own myths and delve deeper into the world of Greek mythology.  

Mathematics:

This half term in Mathematics we will be working on units of measurement. This term, the children will be able to convert between different units of measurement for length, weight and time. These are useful life skills that they will be learning and will be a contextualised within their lessons.

Linking in with our conversions of time, we will be learning how to study and interpret timetables. These will also include real life contexts, such as studying train timetables, airplane time tables and cinema times.

Lastly, we will be using afternoons this half term to support children’s arithmetic skills, preparing them for SATs in Year 6. If you would like more information about how you could help please ask Mr. Quinn or Miss Rasool.
