Year 5

Thank you for visiting our year 5 class web page. We are a creative and curious year group. We are resilient, higher order thinkers, who always endeavour to put our best effort into our learning. 

We are enthusiastic about all our subjects. In maths, we are developing our in-depth study of number and place value as we continue to apply our understanding of addition and subtraction of whole numbers of more than four digits. We use an investigative approach in our learning with mastery and depth of understanding as we deepen our knowledge of multiplication and division by exploring and developing our knowledge and understanding of factors, multiples and prime numbers, as well as squared and cubed numbers

 In English we are following a high quality learning journey. At the moment, we are reading a book called “The Nowhere Emporium”, written by Ross Mackenzie. The text is a fantastic choice for children to dream, wonder, expand their imagination and develop their vocabulary. Children have already written a poem describing in detail their magical shop and they are really excited about the wonders the rest of the chapters will bring. We will conclude our journey by creating our own room of wonder.

In Science we are enjoying learning about forces and gravity. Our lessons are based on experimenting and thinking about the challenges we need to overcome to become the best scientists. We have already explored ways on how to create and compare different types of parachutes and answered scientific questions based on our findings. 

 In the space below, there is more detail about what we will be learning this half term, there are also activities that we can carry out at home to help us become more independent learners.

 

Below, you see what we will be learning this half-term, as well as some activities you can be doing at home.
