Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Hello everyone,

 

Welcome back after the much needed half term break! I hope you all enjoyed the sun. 

This is our last half term in Year 5- how exciting! Our focus will be on Mary Poppins in Literacy, as well as learning the songs for production and our dance. 

 

At the moment, we are continuing to have PE everyday, so you might want to make sure that you have a pair of trainers in your locker and, as the weather will hopefully start to get sunnier this term, make sure you have things like sunhats and sun cream if you need them.

This week's learning

WC Monday 14th June 2021

 

Maths:

We are continuing to learn about decimals this week. We will be focusing on adding and subtracting decimals with the same number of decimal places, and then moving on to adding and subtracting decimals with different numbers of decimal places. 

 

English:

Our genre in English for the next two weeks is narrative with a focus on using dialogue to move action forward. 

 

Reading:

In our guided reading sessions, we are going to be continuing to read our book Wonder and answering some comprehension questions based on the text.

 

Non-Core: Geography

In Geography this week we will be looking at natural resources, finding out what we need to survive and whether it is sustainable.
