Year 5 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 5SB - Mrs Salter and Mrs Bowle's class.
Welome to Year 5
We have a busy and exciting term ahead.
We are thrilled to be taking part in the Theatre in the Quarter project; 'Walk My Journey'.
This is a combined live and filmed project with music focusing on the stories, hopes and dreams of young refugees now living in the UK and involving 600 children from schools in Cheshire.
Please see the letter coming home with the children for further details.
We will be basing our English work initially on the book 'Shadow' by Michael Morpurgo. This book tells the story of a fictional refugee, Aman, from Afghanistan who comes to Britain seeking asylum.
We will be writing persuasive letters, writing character and setting descriptions and completing reading comprehension work all based on the book.
We will also be continuing to develop our Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar skills (SPAG). We will have lessons on SPAG weekly.
Your child will be bringing home their list of Year 5 spelling words to be learnt by the end of the year soon. (Also attached here in files) Please take time to help your child learn these words.
The websites below provide the opportunity to practice at home:

The units that we will be covering in Mathematics this term are:

The website www.mathletics.com is a great tool for developing your mathematic skills linked to these units.
Keep practising your Times Tables- they need to be automatic to 12 x 12. Times Tables Rockstars is a fabulous program to keep honing these skills.
Our Topic this half term is Geography based. We will be learning about general geographical terms such as the Equator, lines of latitude and longitude amongst other things.
We will be looking at the location of Afghanistan and the surrounding countries and comparing the geography and climate and people to those in the UK.
This term we will be finding out about Hinduism by learning about Hindu gods and some of the stories which are important to Hindus.
We will also learn about the Ten Commandments in Christianity and 'Angels' by considering-'Who is a modern day angel?' and linking this to charities.
This term we are looking at Forces and in particular gravity, friction and upthrust. We will be doing many practical investigations and then relating them to real life.
Our P.E. this term is swimming, dance (including country dancing) and hockey skills.
P.E. days are Tuesday and Friday (for swimming). Please ensure your child has their P.E. kit in cshool every week and a dark hoodie and dark joggers if possible as we are out on the playground!
