Year 5

Spring 2

Welcome back Year Five. I can’t believe we are already over half way through the year! You have worked so hard already and shown great maturity within your lessons, which I know will continue. I’m so excited to begin our new topics and I’m sure you will too!

 

Our geography unit is a massively important topic as we will be looking at what we can do to help our planet! We will look at the global goals and discuss how we individually can make the world a better place. In Year Five we will think how we can help energy consumption, litter and responsible usage, culminating in us writing to Dudley Council, asking for their support in helping schools recycle.

 

I am so looking forward to our music unit this half term! We will be looking at RnB and old style hip hop, focusing on the song ‘Fresh Prince of BelAir’. During this unit, we will appraise a variety of songs in this genre and try to define what is needed to classify something as this style of music. We will continue to play a variety of instruments using staff notation and explore improvising with these instruments.

 

As always, 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.

Spring 1

Welcome back Year Five. I hope you have had a truly magical holiday spent with friends, 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. We will be learning about the Mayans, who lived in modern day Mexico. In lessons, we will be uncovering how they were similar to Stone Age Man and how they developed beyond the Iron Age. We will look at their beliefs and rituals, their cities and also the masks they created during our art topic. All of our learning with culminate in the children teaching other classes (and adults) about an aspect of Mayan lifestyle!

 

In science, we will be looking at the relationships between the Moon, Earth and Sun, unpicking what ancient theories were of these celestial bodies. Children will describe the movement of each of these, draw accurate diagrams and use their knowledge to explain why we have day/night and the different seasons within our year.

 

  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.

 

Our new RE topic is focusing on what it is like to be a Muslim in Britain today. We will be discovering what the five pillars of Islam are and how these affect Muslim’s lives. We will be dissecting each of these in more detail and thinking about their similarities with Christian beliefs. This is such an exciting and important topic for the children to be learning about and will ensure they have respect for people’s views that may be different to theirs.

 

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.

We will also carry on with some of the topics we began last half term: such as our topic of Waseley and the Stone Age!

 

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 1

 

Welcome to Year Five! It only feels like five minutes since I was welcoming you to Key Stage Two! I am so lucky to get to teach you all again and I am so excited about moving up to Year Five. We are going to have a fabulous year full of lots of fun, interesting new topics and lots of hard but rewarding work.

 

Our first history topic is all about Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We will be uncovering what it was like to live in these times, what advances happened that changed our ancestors’ lives and why these changes happened. At the end of the topic you will have to decide which age you think was the most influential on human kind and why, pitting your views against the rest of the class! Our art work will also link towards our history as we will be creating our own cave paintings using traditional materials!

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!

 

This year is going to be superb; as always 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.
