Welcome to Year 5 – Y5SB
Our staff for 2018/19:
Mrs H Roe Teaching Assistants Mrs J Collins and Mrs U Saeed
The children have had a fantastic first term in Y5. They have gained a breadth of knowledge by exploring the question “Does change always lead to progress?” During this topic, they visited the Jorvick Viking Centre and discovered lots of the Anglo-Saxons, Romans and Vikings. Our outcome at Firth Park Library in which we told our stories to our parents, was a huge success!
During this term, we will be learning about Earth and Space and exploring the question “What is my place in the universe?” Through our writing, art and scientific enquiries. The children are already off to a stellar start by researching the planets and forces which hold our solar system together.
Find out more by looking at our learning journey.
By the end of the topic, we hope to be Space experts and hold our own science exhibit!
In maths, we will be focusing on the key skills in multiplication and division and fractions. The children are enjoying working in their maths groups and are keen to develop their arithmetic skills, we have been using different apparatus to help us understand how multiplication and division works practically and are now becoming amazing mathematicians by apply more abstract methods to real world problems.
In literacy, we are working on our own information booklet on the different planets of the solar system to be displayed in the science museum in Leicester. We have been using our research skills to find our own planetary facts and are eagerly putting them into our own reports.
In regards to our timetable, we have PE on Tuesday afternoons so please remember to bring your PE kit. We have shared the timetable with parents and children, so any queries please get in touch.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss anything, please do not hesitate to see me before or after school. If this is not possible you can also ring the school office.
Tuesday – P.E Kit needs to be in school.
Friday – Homework and spellings will be sent home. Spelling test will also take place on this day.
