Welcome to Year 5 Class!
Autumn Term 2017
Welcome to the Autumn Term! We hope that you had a restful summer and are looking forward to an exciting academic year.
This term our topic will be Brainwaves. We shall be looking at the way the brain is divided into sections and the functions the brain performs. We shall explore how we learn and different ways of learning, and continue into Growth Mindset. The children have already made a great start by discovering interesting facts about the brain. We shall also link art and design to this topic by exploring how we can deceive the eye with op art.
In English, we will be studying adventure stories through developing our skills of building atmosphere and tension in our writing. We will also be looking at, and performing, slam poetry, writing recounts and creating explanation texts.
In maths, we will be focusing on number and place value, the four operations, including word problems, and creating graphs.
In science, we will be investigating earth and space and studying the properties and changes in materials. The children will have lots of opportunity to conduct a range of experiments and develop their skills in how to work scientifically.
We are really looking forward to great year with the class, and I hope you and your child/children are too!
