Year 5

 Welcome to Year 5    

Miss Fowler and Mrs Dale

 

Autumn 1

 

Welcome back Year 5! I hope that you had a good break over the summer holiday and have come back full of enthusiasm and energy for the term ahead.

 

Our topic this half term is Mysterious Materials. The main subjects linked with this topic are Science, Design and Technology, computing and Art. In Science, we will be comparing and grouping materials, separating mixtures, learning how we purify materials and planning our very own investigation! In Design and Technology, we will be researching, designing and making our own sculptures using different materials. We will also be inviting you in near the end of the half term (letter to follow) to make our own Iron Men using scrap metal items, so please keep collecting bits and pieces! Thank you! 

 

English

In English, we will be using book ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes to inspire our writing. We will be focussing on descriptive writing and improving our basic story telling skills using drama. We will also be studying the poem 'The Coming of the Iron Man' by Brenda Williams. Towards the end of the half term, we will be learning about persuasive writing and letters.

 

Maths

In Maths our first unit will be ‘Reasoning with large whole numbers’ where the children will learn to read, write, order, round and compare numbers to at least 1 000 000. Our second unit is called ‘Problem solving with integer addition and subtraction’ and towards the end of the half term we will start the unit ‘Line graphs and timetables’.

 

P.E

P.E. lessons this half term are on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. However, sometimes there may be unforeseen changes in the timetable, which could mean that P.E. would have to move to a different day. Therefore, it is best if your child brings their P.E. kit in on a Monday and leaves it in school until Friday to ensure that they do not miss any P.E. lessons.

 

Home Learning

All homework, including spellings, will be given on Friday and will be due to be handed in on Wednesday (apart from spellings, which need to be learnt by Friday). Spelling books should be in school daily.

 

  • 6 weekly spellings taken from the high frequency words list. An additional spelling sheet may be introduced to your child (words found incorrectly spelt in their independent work).
  • Maths Mastery book
  • Please continue to read with your child at least 3 times a week.
  • Reading homework (green book) every half term

 

If you have any queries or questions about any of this information please do not hesitate to come and see me. I am really looking forward to this half term and I hope the children enjoy the exciting learning ahead.

 

Yours sincerely,

Miss Fowler
