Hello and welcome to Year 5.

Our school theme for this half term is Wonderful Me. In year 5 we study life cycles of animals (including humans) and plants. This includes identifying the changes in humans as they develop into old age and comparing the life cycles of different animals. This will be the theme for our wow day – so start thinking about costumes now!

To support this in English we will begin by studying the Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling. Later in the half term we will debate whether animals should be kept in zoos and write an information text about the life cycle of kangaroos.

 

English

Reading
During this half-term we will be focusing our reading on comprehension and sequencing events that we have just read. It is critical that every child in year 5 reads at home every day. If you need help with supporting this please let us know.

Writing
Our writing this term is also based on our science topic. We’ll be using the themes identified in lifecycles to develop the skill of writing a balanced argument. This involves not only explaining personal views but looking at the issue from other perspectives. We will, of course, continue to develop vocabulary.

 

Maths

This half-term we will be focusing mainly on fractions, decimals and percentages. We will start the term with multiplication and division, using larger numbers. We are looking at the grid method and moving on to formal written method, as well as bus stop for division. It is highly important children know all their times tables by this stage and please make sure they are practising at home. In addition, please make use of Mathletics: a fun way to close some gaps in learning.
