Year 5

Spring 1


Welcome back Year Five. I hope you have had a truly magical holiday spent with family and far far too much food! You have worked so incredibly hard so far this year so keep it up as we enter the spring term.


I am so excited about our History topic and I hope you are too! This half term we will be continuing the narrative of British history that they began with the Anglo-Saxons back in autumn. We will be looking at the impact the Vikings have had on Britain and whether the term ‘Viking’ (which means pirate raid) was a fair name for them or if they were more than this.


In science, we will be looking at how forces affect us in everyday life. The children will create their own experiments to look at the effects of different forces such as gravity, air and water resistance and upthrust. They will also draw their own detailed diagrams, demonstrating how forces work upon everything around us. 


  If you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to ask me or arrange a meeting with me - my door is always open. You can also talk to me by sending in a letter or writing a note in a planner. I’m here to help.

Autumn 2

Welcome back Year Five! I can’t wait to get stuck into this half term as we have so many wonderful topics and lessons to enjoy and learn from. I have been so impressed with how you have taken the step up into Year Five. Keep it up!

 

Our new RE topic is focusing on the religion of Christianity- asking the question what kind of king was Jesus. This unit will build on well from the learning the children did during our last unit (What does it mean that God is loving and holy?). The children will analyse stories from the Bible to uncover the beliefs of Christians and will look at charitable organisations such the Salvation Army and how they try to follow Jesus’ examples.

 

Another new topic that we will begin this half term is our DT topic, which is making sandals! We will look at existing products and draw annotated designs that the children will use to create their own pair of sandals! During the topic the children will experiment with how to join materials, decide which materials are fit for different jobs and how to finish products.

 

If you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to ask me or arrange a meeting with me - my door is always open. You can also talk to me by sending me a message on dojo or writing a note in a planner. I’m here to help.

 

Remember- Keep practising your times tables and reading so you can get your stamps on your passport.

Autumn 1

Welcome to Year Five! I am so lucky to finally get to teach you all. Fingers crossed this year will go back to normality a little more than we were used to last year. We are going to have a fabulous time full of lots of fun, interesting new topics and challenging but rewarding work. I was so proud of what you achieved on our transition day and I know this is going to be a really successful year.

Our first science is all about investigating the different properties of materials. This means we will take part in lots of experiments and think about what materials are best suited for certain jobs. This is something designers and architects have to think about all the time so is really important!

In geography, we will be travelling to the Waseley Hills in a fun packed topic! In two groups you will either be arguing for or against the idea of building a wind farm on the site. You will need to conduct some field tests and use all your geographical knowledge in order to convince the board whether they should or shouldn’t build a wind farm. What a fantastic opportunity!

 I promise you that this year will be one to remember. All we ask is that you work hard, show plenty of enthusiasm and try your best. If you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to ask me or arrange a meeting with me - my door is always open. You can also talk to me by sending in a letter or writing a note in a planner. I’m here to help.
