Y5RM

Welcome to Year 5 – Y5RM

 

We have had a good start to the year in Y5RM: we have started looking at place value in maths; made news reports about pollution in literacy and begun to explore the question ‘Does change always lead to progress?’ through our topic work.

 

Throughout the rest of the term, we will dive deeper into our question by exploring the lives of Anglo-Saxons and comparing them to our own. We also have an exciting trip to the Jorvik Viking Centre planned for November which will give us a more hands-on experience of what life was like in Anglo-Saxon and Viking times. Science this term will explore change in a very different way, focusing on materials and their properties. Find out more by looking at our learning journey.

 

In maths, we will be moving on from place value to addition and subtraction and then statistics. We have had a lot of fun using the base-10 materials and place value counters for our work so far and are keen to transfer our amazing maths skills into more abstract methods.

 

Literacy lessons are currently focusing on writing an information leaflet about pollution in preparation for BLP week and we have really enjoyed researching this topic, particularly when using our research to create news reports in pairs to show to the rest of the class.

 

Our PE this term comes from our swimming lessons on Friday mornings – so remember to bring your swimming costumes and trunks!

 

The Y5RM door is always open so don’t hesitate to come in if you have any questions or anything you’d like to discuss.

 

Important Information
