WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO THIS TERM IN YEAR 5?
This term, we will be looking at science fiction stories and non-fiction writing initially in English. Then later in the term our English lessons will be based around the novel ‘The Invention of Hugo Cabret’ by Brian Selznick. Some of our art, D.T. and music will come from these areas. Both of these topics will fit with our work in science on space and then forces.
In maths, we will cover multiplication and division, fractions and, finally, decimals and percentages.
The people from Sports Development will come to teach us about netball.
In the spring term, we will look at the history of Ancient Egypt. We will find out about the Nile and everyday life, pyramids and mummification, hieroglyphics and gods and we will discover how archaeologists find out about the past.
Our first topic in R.E. is Jesus, the teacher. Of course, later we will be thinking more deeply about Easter, the death of Jesus and why Christians see it as a victory.
We will take a closer look at databases and coding in I.C.T.
