Welcome to the Year 5 class page!
Welcome to the Summer Term! We are very excited to begin our new topic - America.
The adults supporting the class are Mrs Fern and Mrs Sheppard.
PE days will be Wednesday and Friday, we ask that pupils come into school in their PE uniform on these days please.
Throughout this term we will be exploring the following questions:
- Why does the landscape differ so much across America?
- Were the Maya ahead of their time?
We will be working on the following projects:
- Paint your own Pop Art
- Use Henry Ford as an inspiration to make a working car.
- Film a Hollywood Blockbuster to entertain the class.
In our English lessons, we will be writing a narrative based on a Mayan Folk tale, an instruction text, a discussion text and creating free verse poetry. Our class reader for this term will be Middleworld.
Alongside this, we will also consider:
- What can be done to reduce racism? Can religion help?
- How do living things change throughout their lives?
In PSHE, we will be exploring our relationships and how our bodies change as we grow. In PE, we will be learning the skills involved in playing Rounders and having some Swimming sessions at the local pool. Whilst in maths, we will explore decimals, property of shapes, position and direction and measurement. In music, we will be listening to, learning and performing the song Dancing in the Street. In Spanish we will learn to talk about our homes and the clothes we wear. We look forward to a very exciting Summer Term ahead, hopefully doing lots of outdoor learning activities together in the sunny and warm weather ahead!
