Spring Term 2020
Welcome to the second half of Spring Term in Year 5. We are looking forward to starting our new Cornerstones project, Sow, Grow and Farm where we will be putting all our scientific and geographical skills to the test to explore climate zones, farming and food produce around the world!
Our class novel this half term is Beetle Boy, the dark comedy following Darkus and his communications with a beetle. As writers we will be extending our organisation and linking skills in our explanation texts. We will also be exploring style and pattern in poetry and structure within discussion texts.
As mathematicians we will be developing our percentages knowledge then exploring geometry through angles and shapes.
Hockey is our PE focus for this half term on Tuesday afternoons, please ensure you have your outdoor PE kit in school every week.
Remember to check the Home Learning section every Friday to practise your spellings and maths facts for your tests the following week.
Please ensure your reading book and record are in school every day. We are looking forward to sharing your regular Book Buzzes!
Keep an eye out for further information regarding our trip to Hooke Court in the Summer Term.
We are looking forward to an adventurous term with you all,
Mrs Griffiths and Mrs Hill
