Class Information

Welcome to Year 5!

                                                                                                                 

Expectations
Year 5 is an important year in the build up to the children’s final year at Primary School. We have high expectations for the children regarding their learning, school work and behaviour. There is a heavy emphasis in Maple Class on making good choices and being part of a team. We want to be the best we can be!

 

Independence

In Year 5 we will be asking the children to take responsibility for their learning, any kit needed (PE, swimming or books) and their reading and homework.

 

Curriculum  - this half term we will be learning about:

English

We are discussing a variety of poems to build our understanding of language, structure and presentation and how it contributes to a poem's meaning. We will use this to write our own poetry. We will continue to build on our knowledge and practise of spellings and grammar.

Maths

We will re-cap and practise place  value, 4 operations, rounding and decimal numbers. We are developing our understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages and their equivalents.

Science

Living things and their habitats.

History

The Battle of Britain during World War 2.

French

Building pronunciation and fluency for conversation.

RE

Important religious events.

Geography

Maps of the UK and Europe; understanding grid references and different types of maps.

Art and Design

Opportunities for Art and Design will be linked throughout the curriculum.

PSHE

Maple Class will participate in a weekly Circle Time to discuss a variety of topics.
