Welcome to our Year 5 page! 

 

Our topic for the Summer term is the Victorians.

Click here for the Curriculum Map. 

We will be looking at who the Victorians were and how life changed for children throughout this era. 

We will also explore a range of new inventions and the impact these had on day to day life. 

*

This term, for homework, children have been provided with a grid which contains a number of different tasks. For more information, click here.

 

English

We will be reading The Railway Children by E . Nesbit. Through exploring the text, children will write in a range of forms including a diary, explanation text, adventure story and create some rhythm poetry. 

*

We will be continuing with spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG) work linked to GIMME 5. This includes punctuation, conjunctions, adverbials, different types of sentences and added description. Children are encouraged to think about these elements in each piece of writing they do across the curriculum.

 

Maths

We are busy completing our fractions, decimals and percentages unit. 

Our next unit will be on calculating and measuring space where we will look at perimeter and area as well as convert between different units of measure.
