BEING WHO JESUS CALLS US TO BE

Year 5 2017

 

UNITED KINGDOM

 We will be looking at the countries, counties, cities and towns which make up our wonderful Kingdom.  Children will be able to use and explore a variety of different maps in order to develop their geographical understanding.  We will then look at the Anglo-Saxon period of our history and consider where people settled and the impact it had on the country. 

 

 SCIENCE

Children will explore the properties of materials and develop their Science skills on how to conduct a fair test.

We will introduce thermal insulation as a property and children will undertake a series of challenges to include how to keep an ice pop from melting and testing which types of coffee cups are the best at keeping drinks warm the longest.

 

Maths

This term in maths we will be focusing on place value—the core of mathematics! We will be reading, writing, ordering, rounding and comparing numbers; solving number problems; multiplying and dividing by the powers of 10 and using this knowledge to help us with our division and multiplication. We will then focus on geometry as we start to look at angles, perimeter and area before finishing the half-term with addition and subtraction.

 

English

We've been reading Outlaw by Michael Morpurgo which is a different version of Robin Hood. This has been for our topic of Legends of the British Isles
