Welcome to Year 5’s class page. 

 

During this half-term we will be working hard to improve our writing using the story ‘There’s a boy in the girls’ bathroom’ which we are already thoroughly enjoying and eager to find out what will happen to the mischievous main character, Bradley Chalkers. Our writing skills will be strengthened through our topic work on Ancient Egypt, where we will be finding out what how the Egyptians lived through a range of sources. In science, we will be studying growth and will undertake our own investigations about our bodies.

Our maths work will begin with place value, fractions and written methods of calculations, and will also be centred about problem solving. In our R.E. lessons, we will be learning about the story of Creation and reflecting on the how we can use our God-given talents to be better stewards of the world. P.E. this term will be tag-rugby as well as our regular Thursday swimming lessons. In addition to this, we will be taking part in our whole class guitar tuition on a Tuesday, learning to play chords and read music to then practise at home.

 Please ensure P.E. kits are in school throughout the week, guitars are brought to school every Tuesday and swimming kits on a Thursday.
