Welcome to Year 5 Summer Term




Maths: In Maths, we will be learning about decimals, percentages, properties of shapes, position and direction, converting units and volume and capacity.

English: In English, we will revise all previously taught grammar including relative and subordinate clauses, the past perfect tense, fronted adverbials of time, modal verbs, parenthesis and direct speech. We will be applying our skills on work based on the 2 quality texts: The Paperbag Prince by Colin Thompson and Bold and Brave Women from Shakespeare by Becca Stadtlander.

Learning Adventure Projects

Changing Materials. In our summer term science project, we will be learning about the changes that can take place within materials. We will be learning about the differences between solids, liquids and gases. We will be looking at how solids change state due to a temperature change and investigating soluble and insoluble materials

Living Things.

In our second science project for the summer term, we will be looking at living things. We will be looking at the life cycle of bird, reptiles, mammals and amphibians. We will also be looking at metamorphosis and which creatures undergo complete metamorphosis. Finally, we will be looking at the changes that occur through a humans life.

Beyond the Pacific

We will also have a Geography topic based on South America. We will look at Human geography, including: settlement and land use, economic activity including trade links, and the distribution of natural resources including energy, food and minerals. We will look at 6 figure grid references and the longitude and latitude lines.

PE: PE will be delivered twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays. Please send your child in dressed in their PE tops on these days.

Planners: Please ensure if you write a note for me in your child’s planner, they come into school with it in their hand to guarantee I see the message. All children should be reading at home every evening for approximately 20 minutes. Please ensure you or your child writes what has been read in their planner. I will sign all planners on Fridays.

Thank you for your support
