Welcome back for what promises to be a busy, and fun-packed, summer term.

Welcome back for what promises to be a busy, and fun-packed, summer term. 1
Welcome back. I hope you had a happy Easter break and are ready for the start of your final term in Year 5. This term we shall focus on becoming totally brilliant at skills already taught whilst we continue to work hard at learning many new things too:

Maths: Mental addition and subtraction of decimals; coordinates, and properties of 2D and 3D shapes; addition, subtraction and multiplication of fractions; linking decimals, fractions and percentages; interpret line graphs, read timetables and understand time to 1 minute.

English We shall have a real focus on grammar this half term and shall be using plenty of short writing opportunities to practise these skills.

 

Science we shall look at growing plants

Design and Technology We shall explore modelling kits to investigate levers, pulleys and gears

 

Computing We shall continue the work on developing a computer programme using Scratch

 

RE will be finished this week as the children finish looking at the lives of significant women in the Bible

 

PE we have two PE sessions with Mr Peyton on a Monday afternoon and a Thursday morning.

 

History We will look at the amazing scientists and inventors from Baghdad more than 1000 years ago

 

Geography we shall consolidate our knowledge of countries of the world as we keep up to date with the news from around the world.

 

Music we shall begin to explore the Fischy Music range of songs and musical activities.

 

Art will feature in the next half term.

Year 5 have been having a very busy half term and have put together the most excellent of creations as part of their homework on food. I only wish I had been given a few invitations to taste your creations as they looked truly wonderful - and it was great to see so many children helping with the washing up/loading the dishwasher.

 

Also a massive thank you to you all for the donations of seed, bird feeders and nesting boxes. The birds at Wellfield cannot wait to move in! Hopefully when we do our spring birdwatch at the end of March we shall see rather more of a feathery friends than when I did a spot check at the end of January.

 

As we come to then end of several very busy weeks I will need to adjust the planning slightly in order to cover and complete the areas of learning from the Spring 1 Term:

 

English and maths will remain unchanged as we are on track with these.

 

Science will feature in the next half term

 

Design and Technology is linked to our 'Food' topic and is an area still to finish as we work out how to make pizza and pancakes and then find the favourite toppings from the Year R seeds. We shall then have a 'Pizza Party' where all the creations can be taste-tested and enjoyed...

 

Computing still needs to be completed as we have still to  look at the Excel database about 'Ourselves' and interrogate some of the data to see if there are any connections between our different features.

 

RE will be finished this week as the children finish looking at the lives of significant women in the Bible

 

PE we shall continue with swimming after half-term until the Easter holidays. In addition we will still have the weekly PE lesson with Mr Peyton

 

History still needs an evaluation of the things we know about the Anglo-Saxons since we began the topic

 

Geography will continue after the half term as we look at where food comes from and the massive journey made by some fruit and vegetables to get to our plate!

 

Music will be completed by Mrs Brice this week and culminates in the children making their own music to accompany the Highwayman Poem which Year 5 are trying to learn by heart.

 

Art will feature in the next half term.

 

French will be taught after Easter with a French Week which will link with other curriculum areas

 

As you can see we are BUSY, BUSY, BUSY. Please keep up with improving your weekly times tables/ division test score - especially over the half-term break so that knowledge is not lost.

 

Many thanks for all the hard work and for helping Mrs Slater with her return to work.
