Class Curriculum

Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome back Year 5 to 2021, we hope you had a lovely and safe Christmas with your family.

We are really looking forward to the new projects and exciting learning we have planned for you all this term.

We will be starting our new Cornerstones project, ‘Time Traveller’ where we will learn all about changes in ourselves and our bodies as we grow older, become an adult and grow to the age of retirement.

Our class novel this half term is Tom’s Midnight Garden, the tale of a young boy who experiences time travel through the ticking of the 13th hour on a clock in his aunt’s house.

Please remember to read regularly at home and bring your reading book and record to school every day.

As writers we will be developing our use of characterisation and dialogue in stories, especially in a Quest Tale as we will be studying the story of Perseus and Medusa.

As mathematicians we will consolidate our reading and understanding of line graphs, revisit our knowledge of place value to solve division problems and begin to  look at ordering, adding and subtracting fractions.

Remember to have your outdoor PE kit in school every week and check the Home Learning section every Friday to practice your spellings and maths facts for your tests the following week.

Please contact us at l.hill@southill.dorset.sch.uk or t.butler@southill.dorset.sch.uk at anytime if you have any queries or anything to share or celebrate with us, it is always great to hear from you all!

Mrs Hill and Mrs Butler.
