Year 5 2020/21
Welcome to Year 5!
Our 3 classes are:
5DY- Miss Young (Class Teacher), Mrs Cuttiford (TA)
5HB- Miss Broadbent and Mrs Hughes (Class Teachers), Mrs Crowder (TA)
5JC- Mr Charlton (Class Teacher/Deputy Head), Mrs Skerrit and Miss Thomas (TA)
In Year 5, our curriculum areas are diverse and exciting!
During the Autumn term, we start our Ancient Egyptian topic, which will include looking at the River Nile and later comparing this with the River Thames during our Rivers topic.
In RE we begin with comparing The Creation Story and The Big Bang Theory. We then move on to learning about Incarnation after half –term.
In Literacy, our work initially focuses mainly on fictional writing. The children will be taught how to use sophisticated vocabulary, manipulate sentence structure and edit their work (amongst other skills) to make writing exciting and engaging. Clips such as Rock, paper, Scissors and Alma help inspire the pupils to write. We also aim to instil a greater writing stamina in our children whilst promoting neat, cursive, consistent handwriting.
In Maths we primarily focus on arithmetic and formal written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The children knowing their times table facts fluently will help them achieve well on this!
We hope your children enjoy Year 5; it is an exciting year and an important stepping stone on the road towards Year 6.
