Spring Term 2020
Welcome to the first half of Spring Term in Year 5. We are looking forward to starting our new Cornerstones project Alchemy Island where we will be putting all our scientific, geographical and musical skills to the test to complete our journey and find the hidden gold!
Our class novel this half term is Tom’s Midnight Garden, the magical, historical journey back to the Victorian age every time the clock strikes 13. As writers we will be extending our vocabulary skills in our quest tales and developing our use of characterisation and dialogue to engage our readers. We will also be exploring style and pattern in poetry and structure within explanation texts.
As mathematicians we will be developing our fraction, decimal and percentages knowledge then exploring geometry through angles and shapes.
Football is our PE focus for this half term on Monday 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
