Year 5 Class Teacher

Welcome to the Summer Term! The year so far has flown by! In Waltz Class we have got lots of exciting topics planned to take us through our last term as Year Five. 


We will exploring various types of poetry this half term, both modern and classic. The children will develop their speaking and listening skills as we work towards performing their own poems. We will also be working on our debating skills as we learn to create a convincing argument, both verbal and written. Throughout the term we will continue to work on our comprehension and word skills through our weekly spelling test, which is on a Monday. After half term we will fully immerse ourselves in a magical set of stories… 


In maths, the children will be building on their previous knowledge when learning to multiply and divide with increasingly large numbers using formal written methods. They will also be comparing, ordering and calculating with fractions and working with decimals and percentages. They will continue to practise arithmetic strategies and use their knowledge of maths to solve problems.


During Science, we will begin to investigate materials and their properties: the children we will be able to design their own experiments, choosing their aims and making their experiments fair. After half term we will be looking at animals including humans, focusing on the changes that occur as humans develop. 


 In Geography we will be investigating extreme weather, where we will find out about earthquakes, volcanoes and tornados. Our History will start with exploring Crime and Punishment, where we will look at various eras of British History to explore how the justice system has changed over time. We will go from the Romans to the present day, looking at Tudor punishments and finding out about Victorian prisons .


In  Computing the children will be using the Internet as a research tool to aid their learning. We will continue to look at the importance of online safety and explore some coding activities.


We are very excited about Art this half term, as we will be taking part in a project which will be “Out of This World!". After half term we will be looking to confuse and astound by creating some artistic illusions. We will discover how to play with perspective, line and colour to create clever and mind-bending illusions. 


For PE we will be focusing on summer sports, such as cricket, tennis and athletics. 


Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
