Class Curriculum

Welcome to Year 5!

Welcome back to the Summer Term, our last together in Year 5!

We hope you have had a fabulous Easter Break and are feeling rested and refreshed.  We have planned some really exciting projects and lessons this term to help us learn at our very best.  This term will be so important in showing what we know and learning all we can, ready for Year 6 and to catch up after our long absences during lockdown.

We will be starting our new Cornerstones project, ‘Sow, Grow and Farm’ where we will learn about food webs, animal life cycles, the different ways plants reproduce, farming in the United Kingdom and the world and how the different climate zones affect where different foods can be grown.

We will finish our class novel Wolf Wilder, then begin reading Beetle Boy, an adventure story about a young, boy called Darkus going on an exciting and scary adventure to find his dad after he disappeared while busy at work in the museum.

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 story opening s and endings to really engage our readers.  Then we will be exploring our discursive skills in our non-fiction unit, looking at all sides to form a balanced argument.

As mathematicians we will continue our learning of adding and subtracting decimals, then move on to exploring percentage as an amount out of 100.

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 anytime if you have any queries or anything to share or celebrate with us, it is always great to hear from you all!
