What are we learning about?

Welcome to Year 5! 

This term, we are learning about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot. We will be doing lots of research using different tools; laptops, iPADs, historic readings and non-fiction texts. This will allow the children plenty of opportunity for independent learning. 

In Literacy, we are focusing on Traditional Tales, in particular, The Jungle Book. This is a very exciting text for the children to explore life back then. 

A large part of this term will be dedicated to the Linking Project. We are linking with Essa Primary School. There are numerous activities to be carried out, as well as children getting to know children from that school, with different cultural backgrounds to themselves. They will have the opportunity to visit Essa Academy and vice versa later in the year.

Learning at home

Each half term, children will bring home their Learning Log, depending on the topic they are learning about in class. 

Spellings will run through our new scheme, which will allow the children to be taught different rules and the definitions of unfamiliar words. The children will be tested every Friday on these. 

Maths Homework will be given out on a Friday, based on their learning that week and are expected to be in for the following Wednesday. Please keep up the times tables at home.

Reading is expected to be completed daily at home. As the children are now in Year 5, we expect additional reading.
