Welcome to Year 5!
We hope you have had a lovely Christmas break and are ready for the Spring Term.
During Term 3, we will be studying the topic 'Voyage of Discovery'. In this topic we learn all about the life and work of Charles Darwin and the Theory of Evolution. In English, we will be reading the book Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. In Maths, we will be studying the link between fractions, decimals and percentages and developing our problem-solving skills.
During Term 4, we will be studying the topic 'Time to Shine'. The children study music and culture in the 50s, 60's, 70s, 80's to the present day. We specifically focus on the life and music of 'The Beatles'. In Maths, we will be problem solving using different units of measurement and solve problems using graphs. We will be problem solving using formulae, ratio and algebra in Y6. In English, we will be continuing our book study of Kensuke's Kingdom.
Homework will continue to be set every Monday and it is Falcon's turn to take part in Forest Fridays this term.
We are looking forward to working with you this term! Miss Havenhand, Miss Tuck and Mr Mears.
